The Knight & The Damsel

Another week, another Haiku challenge…#44 to be exact.

If you are not familiar with haiku poetry, this is it in a nutshell:

  • You have three lines of poetry.
  • 17 total syllables in the 5/7/5 pattern.
  • You normally tell two opposite images in the poem.
  • Lines one and two should read as a complete sentence and lines two and three should read as a complete sentence.

This week’s word prompts are Charge & Lovers.  Here is my interpretation and I felt this week needed some accompanying artwork, shown below.  Thanks again to Ronovan for hosting.

Their chapter and verse,
Lovers cloaked by the shadows,
Valiantly take charge.

Their chapter and verse, lovers cloaked by the shadows.
Lovers cloaked by the shadows, valiantly take charge.

  2. I have heard of these types of poems from a friend that writes poems, and I find them to be a little difficult to write, especially if you are not a poet, such as you and my friend. I admire others that can create beauty out of challenges. I also want to thank you, for reading my blog and I think your blog is wonderful and I just love your quote at the beginning, it is full of truth. Keep up the great writing.

    • Thank you, Cheryl. For some reason, I’ve always found it easier to pour out my feelings on paper. A lot of the times when I try to tell someone how I feel, I get caught up in the emotions of it and I start crying. Then I get angry because I couldn’t get my words out without getting emotional. So writing helps. Not to say I don’t cry sometimes even as I’m writing. (It’s getting worse with age – I can tear up at commercials! lol) Sometimes I think writing was given to me to help me as part of my journey. And even with the poetry challenges (haiku was especially scary to me), I try to keep everything relative to my personal journey. It all helps, just a little. And when people read and connect and appreciate, such as yourself, it feels like it all really means something. If that makes sense. 🙂
