Smooth and Hand 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’m sharing two Tankas today.

Tanka: A Japanese poem consisting of five lines, the first and third of which have five syllables and the other seven, making 31 syllables in all and giving a complete picture of an event or mood.

You Haunt Me

Her skin appeared smooth

I took her hand, hoping to

feel her loving touch

But only energy flowed

Sans matter, skin was a thought

Nature’s laws are gone

For a ghost has just appeared

And that ghost is me

I should stop following her

And whispering in her ears
