Winning Hand

For a while now, I’ve been participating in poetry prompt challenges here and on Twitter.  One of my steady favorites is issued every Monday morning by RonovanWrites.  I came in at week #8 and have been back for more ever since.

For those of you that don’t know the intricacies of Haiku:

  • You have three lines of poetry.
  • 17 total syllables usually in the 5/7/5 pattern.
  • Haiku can be broken into two sentences with the middle line of the three lines being the commonly used part, meaning 1&2 and 2&3 making sentences.
  • There are normally two opposite meanings in the first and last sentences.

Here is my submission for this week’s RonovanWrites Haiku Prompt Challenge #30:

Winning Hand
Prompts: Force & Free

Force will not reveal,
Winning hand held tight chested,
Nothing trumps freedom.
