Sacrifice: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #51

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).

Until next time.

A gorgeous haiku, Mel! Really lovely. 🙂

Changing Worlds is next on my list so I’m excited to finally learn more about this character and her world 🙂

That’s lovely, Mel–a Haiku about your book. What a great idea.

Very meaningful haiku, Mel. I love it! 😀

The story and image make this work even better. 🙂 It all goes together so great.
