Haiku Friday – Fray & Veiled

8 Apr

Happy Friday everyone! It is Haiku Friday and today’s prompt words are Fray and Veiled. They were provided by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes.

Ronovan hosts a challenge that anyone could participate in called Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge every Monday, and you have until Sunday to create a post featuring your haiku poem. He is an author and poet and also does author interviews and much more on his blog. Be sure to check it out. Read Ron’s Haiku Prompt Challenge Guidelines for more information.

Also check out Ronovan Hester’s new release AMBER WAKE: Gabriel Falling a Historical Adventure about pirates available on Amazon.


♥♥ I’m dedicating this haiku to a very special woman in my life. She’s a retired nurse, lung cancer survivor, and one of the most courages people I know––my mom.


by Vashti Q

I am who I am

Because she won the fight

Courage masked as woman

Fray (Fight) & Veiled (Masked)
