TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Wing

PROMPT WORD: Wing

Caress the breezes

With your feathered wings, gently

Find uplifting love

Never participated before? Or maybe you have never written a haiku? Why not join in this week. It is simple….just create a post on your own blog with your haiku and add a link to it in the comment section at the end of this post (just hit the black speech bubble to open comments) I will be sure to feature your contribution next week. You are also welcome just to write a haiku in the comments. Use either the word prompt or photo (or both) as an inspiration for your haiku this week. New prompts every Saturday!

Not sure how to write a haiku? No one else is either! So don’t worry.

If you want to use a formula then try and keep to this guide (but as Japanese haiku regularly breaks all the rules so should you!)

Line 1 – 5 syllables

Line 2 – 7 syllables

Line 3 – 5 syllables

Usually the haiku refers in some way to nature and tries to make you see something in a slightly different light. A haiku containing humour is called something else but if you want to write a fun haiku then all the better I say! It is all about spending a moment or two looking at something in a slightly different way.

Last week the prompt was “dry” with a picture of a cactus

It inspired some great haiku responses.

ISM’s first in take on the prompt is an excellent example of a novel approach to the prompt. Stunning use of vocabulary too!

Freya has given use two new takes on “dry”. Both are intoxicating.

Ritu has found beauty in the desert. Lovely pic too!

Kia’s cactus is overflowing with festive cheer this week.

Shadeau has poured water on parched earth and created a stream of delightful imagery with a biblical twist before finishing with a clever take on the photo prompt!

Judy Martin has given us the irony of the sunflower’s reaction to the sun. A great take indeed.

The penultimate post of Kat Myrman’s encourages us to consider the curative properties of the prickly pear. Do not go outside and try eating mommy’s cactus kiddies!

And lastly, Life Home and Away gives us the potential of the seed pod. Lovely!

  2. I love your haiku–definitely lifted my wings! And what a cute photo–wish I could have snapped one of the little chickadee-sort wandering about the roof abutment outside my living room window this afternoon. Thanks always, for the mention 🙂
