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