Cages #Haiku

 

 

Graceful lioness

Magnificent creature. Caught.

Caged. Paces to death

 

 

 

This week’s prompt is to write a poem with synonyms of the words ‘hurry’ & ‘last’ in it.

A small haiku-like contribution to Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge. You can write any of the following: Haiku / Tanka / Haibun / Cinquain / Senryu. Check it out and challenge yourself to some poetry.

 

 

Turning comments off as I won’t be available to approve or reply. Just wanted to have a bit of fun with Colleen’s lovely challenge. 💕

Beneath the Frosted Pines #Haiku

 

 

Slender shoots shiver

Wrapped in winter’s frozen soil

Waiting to blossom

 

 

 

This week’s prompt is to write a poem with synonyms of the words ‘green’ & ‘patience’ in it. (I think I took some liberties here…)

Wings #Haiku

 

Mist coils sleeping pines

From their shadows, bats take flight

Dark shapes in moonlight

 

 

 

 

It’s been a bit since I’ve taken on one of Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday challenges (which is now: Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge). Things have changed. More forms are included: Haiku / Tanka / Haibun / Cinquain / Senryu. Check it out and challenge yourself.

I’ve chosen a haiku. This week’s prompt is to write a poem with the words ‘mist’ & ‘shape’ in it.

Haiku: Busted

 

Holding the sign high
Time fading. She must hurry.
“Florida Or Bust”

~~~

Newspapers showed her
In the act. She must face the
Public. She’s busted.

 

 

This is part of a weekly haiku writing challenge which must be written in the English form of 5-7-5.

#57 Prompt: Write a haiku using the words “must” and “bust”

Haiku: Madness

 

I fear I’ll go mad

Long before they find a guide

For me, I am lost

 

~~~

 

I turn to face him,

This mad guide they have sent me

I will not follow

Five Photos, Five Stories (Day 5)

 

Spring Equinox sprout

Growth

Fresh, new beginning

Promised life. While apathy

Crushed all that was left

Asteraceae

Summer

Wisps of sun-bleached hair

Brush my cheek. She lives in light,

I dwell in shadow

Five Photos, Five Stories (Day 3)

 

Flutter

Fragile

Search her vacant eyes

Slight movement, recognition

Hope flutters away

Five Photos, Five Stories (Day 2)

 

 

Painted Sky

Radiant

Music glides like clouds

His tiny hands move with grace

Over ivory keys

 

 

This post is part of a Five Photos, Five Stories challenge. This is my Day 2 photo, “Painted Sky”, with its accompanying haiku. Here’s my Day 1 Post, “Anxiety”. Thanks to Norah, for nominating me and allowing me to play with words and pictures while I get back on my feet. I nominate Dana Schwartz to take on this fun photo challenge. Will she pick up the gauntlet? If so, it will be a treat. Her writing is beautiful and I’d love to see where she takes this challenge. Will we see some fiction?

Five Photos, Five Stories (Day 1)

 

 

Look Up

Anxiety

My mind spins, eyes close,

Heart beats. Wrong. Too fast. Can’t breathe.

Look up. Perspective.

 

 

I’ve been nominated by the lovely Norah Colvin in a Five Photos, Five Stories (in five days) challenge. And I accept. So here is my Day 1 photo, “Look Up”, with its accompanying haiku. Thanks, Norah, for giving me a wonderful way to use my creativity while I get back on my feet. I nominate AJ Prince to take on this fun photo challenge. I might have to send Dracula after her to, um, motivate her but that’s okay. He owes me a favor and she won’t mind.
