Hi everyone! Happy Haiku Friday! 😀 Today’s prompt words are provided by Ron and they are Bridge & Move. Visit Ron’s blog, RonovanWrites and participate in his weekly haiku challenges. There’s also so much more to his blog, so you should really visit and enjoy.

 

 

When I read the prompt words I automatically thought of Star Trek! So this is what I came up with. For all the “Trekkies” out there––I hope I got it right.

Star Trek

Take the bridge captain

Move pass the stars at warp speed

And watch them tremble

Star Trek Enterprise

Space . . . the final frontier

It was logical

Star Trek the original series

Crows pick on muse’s flesh

Life Finds A Way

From the dry, cracked earth

Delicate life forces through

Free as a daisy

Did you enjoy the Haiku poem? I love daisies. They make me smile and to me they represent simple beauty, purity, and strength. What’s your favorite flower and what does it represent to you?

Haiku Friday – Jacob’s Ladder

12 Dec

Hi! Welcome to another Haiku Friday! This week’s haiku were inspired by RonovanWrites Weekly #PHOTOgraphy #HaiKU Rewind #21Climb&Heavens. The prompts are Climb and Heaven. The moment I saw those words on Ronowan’s post I thought of two things: 1. Jacob, a biblical Patriarch’s dream about a staircase to Heaven, and  2. Jacob’s Ladder the flower. So I wrote a haiku for each. Let me know what you think.

Jacob’s Ladder

As the end draws near

My soul climbs up the ladder

Closer to Heaven

Clusters of purplish flowers

Climbing toward Heaven

 

What do the words Climb and Heaven make you think about? Do you enjoy haiku poetry?
