Haiku Friday – Pie & Dust

29 Jul

Pie and Dust are this week’s prompt words chosen by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes. Ron 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.

Here’s my attempt for this week’s words Pie (sweet) and Dust . . .

Temptation is sweet

My body pleads like a child

The dust then settles

Followed by sting of regret

I broke my diet again!

Last week I didn’t get a chance to post ‘Haiku Friday’, so this is what I came up with last week’s words Sing and Flower

Little flower sleeps

Curled up like a tiny seed

Dreaming of singing

In the morn the sun will shine

Stretch up tall and sing your song

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

    Oh temptation… Thanks for both poems. Love the flower one (and the other one although it’s too close for comfort :)) Have a great weekend, Vashti

      Ha, ha! Too close for comfort, huh? It’s definitely a struggle. I’m happy you liked the poems. You have a fantastic day and weekend too. 😀 xx

      That’s awesome! With the first one I wanted to guide the mind toward one thing and then surprise with something unexpected. Not sure if I achieved that, but I tried. 😉 ❤

    Two beautifully strong haiku! Imagery that nearly breaks into the 3rd dimension. Wonderful, wonderful ❤

    I am trying to be on a sugar free diet – I can SO relate to your first haiku!

      Ha, ha! It can be difficult at times. I love fruit and they usually sustain me but occasionally chocolate can really be tempting.

    Hi Vashti
    I love reading your posts 😍😍😍 very apt the naughty but nice sensation you get when you indulge in your favourite pastry or cake, then the dreamy flow of words of sing and flower. Thank you for sharing X X X

    When the dust settles after indulging in the pie comes the regret. Great haiku you carve here 🙂
    I would like to invite you to my blog party which just started. Link is titled ‘it’s party time come right in.”

    These are really good. I also love that artwork. For some reason, now I want to watch Rocky Horror again.

    Oh dear, I know that sting of regret! Great, relatable haiku. And I can just see the sunflower rising up in response to the second haiku.

    Both poems are very immediate Vashti, the second one is a cheery imaginative soul warmer

    Those RED lips and how just lips could show proper reaction is amazing…you give life to them. I love the Haiku. Inbtw: were you really ‘watching’ the weight? LOL

      Isn’t it amazing how expressive lips/mouth can be? The artist Sara Pope did a great job capturing that. Aww. Thank you for giving me so much credit. 🙂 Always . . . always watching the weight. It’s an American obsession.

    The first haiku made me giggle…can so relate!! And the second made me smile, beautifully poetic, human flowers. Trying to decide which flower I might like to be…

      I think I’d like to be a daisy. Not the prettiest but certainly one of the strongest and most resilient. I’m happy you enjoyed the post.
