Haiku Friday – Clouds & Sunshine

23 Sep

Hello everyone! Welcome and Happy Haiku Friday!


Clouds and Sunshine 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.

I’ve use the synonym ‘Daybreak’ for ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Mist’ for ‘Clouds’. In the Tanka I used ‘Light’ and ‘Puff’.

Daybreak hours fore

Shadows stir in the mist

They surround the night

Victim’s Revenge

by Vashti Q

Creature of the night

Trapped by incandescent light

Long did they embrace

In her arms he burned like fire

Puff of dust to soothe her ire
