What is #OHJ?

Micropoetry | Haiku | Gogyohka | Tanka | Senryu | Twaiku | 1-6 lines | 3-10 words

OHJ or ‘#ohj‘, is a twitter-based hashtag daily word game created by Paul Nadolny.  Every day the micropoet provides two words from his twitter feed @OddlyStarry.  You create a tweet incorporating one or both words.  Make sure you tag the tweet with #OHJ or #ohj, so other players can find it easily.

Originally, OHJ stood for “Oddly Haunted Journey”, because in October 2011, Paul conceived this as a one month game leading up to Halloween.  Now the letters mean something different each month, depending on the monthly theme.

Nights struggling wild heart Traversing bliss by anguish wrought Stumbling-torn by intellect, yet Hopeless in the favour of her eyes #Ohj

My favourite journey Is to traverse dreamland Arriving in yesteryear Next to you #ohj

Favourite pastime To traverse across mountains Covered in deep snow #ohj #haiku

poppa traversed the woods because he was in a hurry, walking the lane and meeting folks was his favorite way to travel. #ohj
