Haiku Friday – Jacob’s Ladder

12 Dec

Hi! Welcome to another Haiku Friday! This week’s haiku were inspired by RonovanWrites Weekly #PHOTOgraphy #HaiKU Rewind #21Climb&Heavens. The prompts are Climb and Heaven. The moment I saw those words on Ronowan’s post I thought of two things: 1. Jacob, a biblical Patriarch’s dream about a staircase to Heaven, and  2. Jacob’s Ladder the flower. So I wrote a haiku for each. Let me know what you think.

Jacob’s Ladder

As the end draws near

My soul climbs up the ladder

Closer to Heaven

Jacob’s Ladder

Found in my Garden

Clusters of purplish flowers

Climbing toward Heaven


What do the words Climb and Heaven make you think about? Do you enjoy haiku poetry?

    Hi Vashti, I like the words of Jacob’s Ladder and think the artwork is lovely too. Do bloggers have to use the same image/theme if they join Haiku Fridays?

      Hi Michelle! Thank you. No not at all. I’m all for poets/writers/bloggers doing their own thing. You can use any theme you want/image you want. I visited Ron’s blog and thought these prompts were interesting and thought I’d give it a try. 😉

    I think of the song ‘stairway to heaven’. I’m so original ;).

      Ha, ha! I also thought of the movie ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ but I couldn’t remember why. Oh well. 😛
