Haiku Friday – Heart & Petals

25 Nov

Happy Haiku Friday, everyone!


Heart and Petals 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’ll remember you 

As the petals of my heart

That grew out of love

Oops! I made a mistake. It turns out that this week’s prompt words are actually Dream and Dare. So here’s another haiku with the proper prompt words.

Hold fast to your dreams

Dare to fail and try again

Dream big little girl
