This week for Ronovan Writes Haiku Prompt Challenge I’m going to share with you some photos of myself and my family that I took on the 1st of January just before the fireworks were scheduled to be set off the award winning pier at Cromer. If you managed to see my previous post you will have seen that we are taking a short New Year’s break in Cromer. https://mjmallon.com/2015/12/31/happy-new-year-2/
The photo above is of one of the finale fireworks, isn’t it absolutely wonderful?
Here we are huddled together trying to keep warm, we stopped for a quick hot chocolate, just before the display.
The fireworks were spectacular, and my only regret is that I didn’t have a good enough camera to do justice to their beauty but nevertheless here they are in all their wonderment:
I just loved how this one turned out, to me it looks like a pretty present with a sparkling lid, and the one immediately after it resembles some kind of beautiful sea creature.
And this particular fellow is an explosion of flowers.
And this the biggest fizzing lollipop you are ever going to see!
As to this one, it looks like a giant creepy crawly to me!! What do you reckon?
They were all so amazing that they inspired me to write a haiku with them in mind:
A New Year Divine
A New Year divine,
So sublime the heavens smile!
Fireworks in motion.
Followed by a Tanka:
A pretty present
All wrapped in shimmering light
Perhaps it is real?
A momentary delight
Sending our senses reeling.
A tanka consists of 5 lines and 31 syllables.
Each line has a set number of syllables see below:
Line 1 5 syllables
Line 2 7 syllables
Line 3 5 syllables
Line 4 7 syllables
Line 5 7 syllables

And his excellent advice on how to write a haiku, I like to refer to this from time to time to refresh my memory:
