Haiku Friday – Dragon & Invite

6 May

haiku-friday-the writer next door-Vashti Q-poetry

Hi Everyone! I created the word cloud above in a website called Festisite. You can create different word graphics easily and I am addicted. My friend Ritu of But I Smile Anyway . . . showcased some of her word art and featured the site on her blog. Thank you Ritu! Be sure to check out her blog and read her take on this week’s prompt words Dragon and Invite.

 Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes 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. Ron usually provides the prompt words but this week we have a special treat and the words were provided by Wild Daffodil‘s 8 year old granddaughter Miss E. She did a great job choosing two interesting words that can stimulate anyone’s imagination and creativity. Thanks Miss E!

Ronovan 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.

Here’s my contribution for this week . . .

The dragon reveals

The awesome power of God

Tempts the sons of pride

Do not invite it

Nothing on earth can stop it

The Leviathan

Sorry for the late post and have a great weekend!

    I thought I commented already; maybe I was interrupted. I like the sense of power in these.

    By coincidence, I have since Friday been reading about dragons and love and princesses…

    the rope-fast maid knows
    how the dragon’s armoured heart
    invites the arrow

    I was imagining someone on a pulpit saying your words. Beware the dragon! I also loved the word cloud. My curiosity is peaked. 🙂

      Ha, ha! Yeah, it does sound a little preachy. Try the site above it’s a lot of fun. I have one warning though––it’s addictive. 😉
