Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #50

This is my contribution to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Prompt Series. Here are the prompts this week:


I got carried away and played around with the prompts a little. It was great fun. Thanks to Ronovan, as always, for the opportunity.

This good, loyal hound

He awaits your attention

With no hope of gain

The darkness hounds me

Like a leech upon my soul

Its loss is my gain

With a thrill that hounds

I await your gentle touch;

the pleasure I gain

Thanks for stopping by.




Wonderful, Mel! These really are fantastic. I don’t want to hear you belittling your poetry skills ever again 😉

Oh I love the first one. Anything about dogs and their loyalty and forgiveness grabs me. Nicely done, Mel.

You had a nice go at it here:) I really liked all 3.

You are becoming quite the haiku artist. A nice threesome. My favourite is the second since I do like the darker side of life.

Awesome job. I like how they all told something different.

Excellent, Mel! You are going to make me work hard this week! ❤

You were being a bit modest when you talked about your poetry skills, Melissa. I love this haiku. I must read next weeks.

These are lovely! I especially enjoyed the last one. 💗

Three excellent haiku, my favourite is the darkness hounds me, oh I’m jealous of that one!

Hi Mel, I love he middle one! 🙂
