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

Jacob’s Ladder

Found in my Garden

Clusters of purplish flowers

Climbing toward Heaven


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