Hello! It is Haiku Friday and today’s prompt words are Lightning and Rain. 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.
**This is my first time writing a Tanka which is a Japanese poem very much like a Haiku except it has two extra lines at the end both with seven syllables. (5-7-5-7-7)
She stood in the mist
Waiting on the same corner
For the lightning train
To carry her past the stars
Where her beloved awaits
