All women are gems

Worthy, spirited and strong

To cheer saints with no day

Haiku Friday – Free & Think

24 Jul

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge


Hello everyone! Welcome to another Haiku Friday! I visited Ron’s blog to check out this week’s prompt words Free and Think. The words reminded me of something funny I had seen a while back on Tumblr. After double checking the words, to be sure I got them right this week, I came up with this haiku. I hope it tickles you. 😉

You think––freedom, then . . .

Haiku Friday – Pitch & Time

22 May

RonovanWrites_Vashti Quiroz-Vega's Blog


Hi and welcome to Haiku Friday! Ron created ‘RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge‘ to have a place for people to share and gain a little exposure to other readers they might not have otherwise AND of course to enjoy Haiku. We all have different people who visit our blogs. Visit the link and take part in this fun challenge. You don’t know what a Haiku Poem is or how to write one, no problem, read this.

This week’s prompt words are Pitch and Time. I had a hard time with these words. Since I’m currently working on my Fantasy Angels Series, I drew inspiration from my story and came up with this.

Divine Melody

God’s entertainment

Since the beginning of time

Pitch of angel’s song

Do you believe in angels? If not, why do you think so many people claim to have heard and/or seen them?

Haiku Friday – Charge & Lovers

15 May

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge


Welcome to Haiku Friday! I hope everyone is having a great day so far. Today’s prompt words are a little spicy, so I’m just going to go with it. I’m wondering what Ron’s mood was like when he thought of these prompt words. If you’d like to participate in Ronovan’s haiku prompt challenge click on the link above. It’s a lot of fun and you get to read many other great haiku on his review post on Sunday. My haiku has no title this week. I’ll let Ron give it a name. 😉


Charge your batteries

The lovers that take all night

Are doing it right

(Check out the musical sound of my haiku––thanks Ysobel)


Can you have a healthy marriage without sexual intimacy? Do you think ‘making love’ is the most meaningful way for a couple to express love to one another? Do you enjoy sex? Or is it just a ‘bad’ word to you?

Haiku Friday – Source & Thought

8 May

Hello everyone! Welcome to Haiku Friday! Today’s prompt words are Source and Thought, provided by RonovanWrites Weekly Poetry Prompt Challenge.


by Vashti Quiroz-Vega

The source of my pain

No medicine man could find

I thought you loved me

haiku friday_Vashti Quiroz-Vega's Blog_RonovanWrites_Poetry

Cupid’s arrow stung

He completely missed the source

I thought I would die


“Hey, Cupid? Yeah. It’d be really nice if next time you shot both of us!” I found this hilarious statement on Tumblr and thought it would go perfect with my theme.


Do you ever think about the one that got away? Have you ever experienced unrequited love? Have you ever been stalked by someone (or stalked someone)?

Haiku Friday – Love & Last

30 Apr

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge


Hello! Welcome to my blog! I have to admit that when I read the prompt words for this week’s Haiku Friday, Love and Last, I was in a weird sort of mood. Once in a while, I get in a goofy, laugh at everything, I want to play and joke around mood, and that’s the kind of mood I was in when I wrote this week’s haiku. I was also starving after hours of writing and I wanted to celebrate because the writing went well. So I celebrated with––you guessed it––food.



Ebullient Eating

I love leftovers

Sometimes the last morsel is . . .

the most succulent

After I satisfied my belly my mood changed . . .

A million stars

Twinkle above in the night sky

One shines the brightest

Do you believe in true love? Are you in love?

Do you enjoy leftovers? What are your favorite leftover foods?

Demons dance to make me mad

I need a new home

Haiku Friday – Vie & Reach

10 Apr

Hello everyone! Welcome to ‘Haiku Friday’! Another week, another challenge from RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge. Today’s prompt words are Vie and Reach.

I immediately thought of my work in progress, The Fall of Lilith. The Fall of Lilith is the first installment of my Fantasy Angels Series which should be out later this year (fingers & toes crossed). Anyway, this is what I came up with.


The Fall of Lilith

She vies to be seen

Reaching for the pinnacle

She falls the hardest

Do you enjoy reading? Do you read fantasy books? Do you believe in angels? Demons? Do you believe controversial books should be banned?
