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.

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
