Haiku Friday – Summer & Fun

1 Jul

Haiku-Friday-Poetry-The Writer Next Door-Vashti Q

 Summer and Fun are this week’s prompt words chosen by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes. These words make me smile. I love summer. Even if you’re not off for the summer the season still seem fun-filled and laid-back. Most people act differently––easygoing, loose, even at work. Many people take vacations during the summer because their kids are out of school, so they work in happier moods knowing they have time off to look forward to.

Warm breezes tickle

Ardent sunbeams caress me 

sweet summertime fun

Bright sun shouts ‘hello’

Gentle winds whisper ‘good day’

It’s time to be merry

Ronovan Hester 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.

Enjoy the weekend!

      Hi! Thank you! Yes, yours is lovely and it does have the 5-7-5 syllable structure that’s required. Well done. 😀
