Brothers In Arms: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #60

bridging-life1This week, the prompt words for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge are BRIDGE and MOVE.

The example provided by Ronovan:

SEASONS ARE TO BRIDGE

LIFE FROM BEGINNING TO END,

WILL CHANGE YOUR FUTURE.

If you’ve never tried out a haiku before, and you’d like to learn more, click here to read Ronovan’s article on how to write a haiku poem in English form.

I often use my current work in progress as inspiration for the haikus, and a little poetic license! I’ve got a lot to learn yet about this form of poetry, but I enjoy both the challenge and the practice. My current WIP is about men and women who served together – one in particular who had quite a journey to recovery.

I like that you use your current WIP. Clever idea. I can see that helping you understand your characters even better.

Awesome job, Mel. I like how you use your WIPs for them. Makes them more interesting.

Powerful words, Mel. Very nicely done! 🙂

Powerful haiku and very inspiring. Love it! 😀

Enjoyed your haiku – the stark yellow and black reminded me of road signs and enhanced the suggestion of a long, arduous journey 🙂

Very good Melissa, I like how you’ve linked it to your WIP, I haven’t done that for a while, think I did in the past….. Maybe next time!
