Haikus: Erosion & Man Eaters

My haikus for RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Challenge–a fun activity and contest that is open for everyone to participate, and helps keep our creative writer’s mind active! This week’s words are: Tide & Flesh.

The tide rushes in,
Water wears away the cliff,
Like tears across flesh.


“Man Eaters”
Sharks ride on the tide,
The scent of flesh is tempting,
Vampire-frog lurks.

How to read a haiku:
Sharks ride on the tide, The scent of flesh is tempting.
The scent of flesh is tempting, Vampire-frog lurks.

    • The frog, haha, well it’s a “vampire frog” that eats flesh. Lol, the idea made me laugh. XD Haikus are read as two separate images that don’t relate to each other; so the first image is the shark being tempted by the scent of flesh, then the second separate image is the vampire-frog being tempted by the scent of flesh. 😀

      • That haiku rule sounds like a western addendum, but it works quite well here. Humorous poems are always good for a quick soul freshener. 🙂

          • Not writing, but translating from old Japanese. 🙂 It’s got some fun conventions that are a bit harder to pull of in English, like pivot words (you can imagine using homophones to offer double meanings without sacrificing syllable counts). 🙂
