This week, the prompt words for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge are ‘Future’ and ‘Give’.
I let my mind wander for a while, and kept coming back to Maddison Wood, one of my characters. The prompt words inspired me to write a haiku about the sacrifice she makes to save a stranger. The him, for those familiar with my work, is Donovan (who is tortured during the Hympe Trials).

Thank you for reading and thanks, as always, to Ronovan for providing us with this great opportunity.
Until next time.
