RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #38 ill&rest
Well I enjoyed doing Challenge #37, so I thought I’d do another Haiku Prompt Challenge.
It’s fun so here goes.
The theme this week is ill and rest.
I wrote two Hiakus this week, they are both about loss and death, sorry for being so morbid but the prompt of ill and rest seemed to lead me down that path!
My first Haiku A Bitter Ill is about illness resulting in loss of life, whereas my second Haiku,
The Tornado’s Fist is about loss of life, caused by the devastating effect of natural disasters.
A Bitter Ill
A bitter ill may kill
Rest survive when others die
Too cruel this sad world.
A bitter ill may kill, rest survive when others die.
Rest survive when others die, too cruel this sad world.
The Tornado’s Fist
The Tornado’s Fist
Strangers far away do grieve
Lives lost with one blow
The tornado’s fist, strangers far away do grieve.
Strangers far away do grieve, lives lost with one blow.

Loved both your haiku. They were sad but beautiful. Loved the tornado picture too.
Thanks so much really appreciate your kind comment. Glad you enjoyed them. 🙂
Marjorie, well done with your haiku! I enjoyed both. What made you decide to jump in and give Donovan’s challenge a try? It took me quite a long while to put mine together. How about you?
Thank you Stacy. I had been thinking of joining in for a while and glad I did. I thought haiku would be a good starting point for writing some poetry, given that they are structured and short. Having said that they’re not easy to do! I fiddle with the words until I find the combination that seems to be my best attempt! Thanks so much for commenting. 🙂
