Wings of love: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #59

ronovan_writes_haiku_prompt_badge_autumn_2014I haven’t participated for a few weeks but, after reading my friend Colleen’s post, I felt inspired to take part. Colleen lost her sister eighteen years ago, and wrote a poem entitled Kathy’s Cardinal. It’s beautiful. You should definitely check it out.

This week, the prompt words for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge are RED and BIRD.

The example provided by Ronovan:

AS THE SUN BURNS RED,

HEARTS RISE FROM THEIR MISERY,

LIKE LOVE ON BIRD WINGS.

Lovely picture that goes along with that poignant haiku.

Mel that is beautiful! Thank you for including Kathy and I in your thoughts! 💗💗💗

Lovely. It’s a wonderful tribute to Kathy. I’m going to adopt that attitude.

Excellent imagery. Lots of cardinals around here, so I got a great visual.

Wonderful. I’d missed your haikus 🙂

I love cardinals, but they are rarely seen here. I especially enjoyed your use of “sweet.” 🙂 And thanks for sharing Colleen’s poem as well, it was very touching.

That’s a beautiful and meaningful haiku, Melissa. Love it! ❤
