RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #75 Charm&Look



Today I’m writing  three haiku using Ronovan’s prompt words for this week : charm and look.

My first two haiku are the usual 5,7, 5 format but the last one is 3,5,3 thought I’d try that for a change.

My haiku is based upon a character in my manuscript, who I intend to develop so I thought I’d write this haiku with her in mind…


Sad Mirror Girl


The Sad Mirror Girl

Look but you can never touch

Her sweet charms are locked


Look! Lost child’s report

Weird reflections greet her now

No charm can save her


Look! How her Tears fall

Captured in charming glass walls

Lonely Mirror girl


Look! Spell cast

A Puzzle perhaps

No escape?

Poor soul, can you imagine? I think I will really have to get my sad hat on to write more about this particular character.


I’ve got to get ready for work now, must dash, hope that The Mirror Girl piqued your interest.

Bye for now, got to fuel up with a good breakfast…. Not sure if I’ve got time for eggs and bacon but you can always imagine can’t you…

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. Oh, I’m feeling rather sad and worried about The Mirror Girl. I enjoyed these haikus and it’s definitely whetted my interest to read more. 😀Have a good day at work and hope it isn’t too manic!

      1. Sorry to hear that but not surprised. Weekend before Chrsitams is usually looney time. Hopefully you have some new material for stories or character studies, Some wine to recover perhaps?
