Haikus: Gone/For Whom The Bell Tolls

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: Pen & Muse.

The old oak muses
What once was but now is lost,
Heart an empty cage


“For Whom The Bell Tolls”
Pen in hand, steady,
Grim Reaper muses his book,
Checking the names twice.

How to read a haiku:
The old oak muses What once was, but now is lost.
What once was, but now is lost, Heart an empty cage.

  1. I like the first one the best, I think. It’s mournful. But beautiful. The second made me smile. I wonder what would happen if someone stole the grim reaper’s book?

  2. The second poem is like the opposite of Santa Claus checking his own list. *shudders* Chilling to think that the Grim Reaper would do that for his own work!

    And awwww, the poor oak tree misses its leaves. (Is that close to what you meant for the first haiku?)

    • “You better watch ouuut, better not cryyy~” Haha, a very creepy Santa that’d be! XD
      I was picturing the oak as an ever-present being who has over time watched the land and people around It change. But it can have more than one meaning, and that’s sort of why I wrote it that way. Haikus can have many meanings. 🙂
