Haikus: Beyond & Source of Greed

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: Crane & Gold.

The crane’s curved wings beat,
Into the golden sunset,
I am led beyond.


“Source of Greed”
Power, desire,
He cranes his neck to the gold,
Ensnared by its charm.

How to read a haiku:
The crane’s curved wings beat, Into the golden sunset,
Into the golden sunset, I am led beyond.

  1. These two are both powerful in different ways. The first has a wonderful image at the end. The second has a dark feeling. But there’s truth in it, and that saddens me.

  2. I love “Beyond.” It’s peaceful and powerful, especially in its imagery, like Phoenix said. I wanted to travel with the crane to wherever it was going.

    And, um, I thought of Thorin Oakenshield when I read the second haiku. *blushes*

    • Thank you, Sara. I pictured myself as the crane in a way, flying off into the sunset, off into whatever may await in the beyond. I’m glad you could feel that same feeling too.

      Thorin Oakenshield, that fits perfectly! I love that idea! I must say though, you’ve had Thorin on the mind quite a bit lately, hmm? 😉

      • You know what else the first poem reminded me of, besides the crane? Sailing off to Valinor. 🙂 I forgot to mention that the first time around.

        “I must say though, you’ve had Thorin on the mind quite a bit lately, hmm? ;)”

        I… have? (*blinks*) Where else have I talked about him recently? (Sorry, my memory’s a bit shot. It’s been a stressful past few days offline.)
