Haiku: Blanket & Careful

haiku, poem, poetry, fantasy, E Rawls

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: Tight & Warm.

Longing for spring’s warmth
Tree fairy hugs the blanket,
Tight against cold fear.
Sword hilt tight in hand
Warm blood runs down to the grass,
Painful accident.

  1. Ooh, I really enjoyed these! I went through wakas, tankas, and haikus in my literature class pretty recently! I had to write a few, too, though I’m afraid I’m not at all very good at them. 😛 Very nice, these ones!

  2. I can identify with the first one. I too am waiting for spring’s warmth. And the second makes me wince – the last line kind of twists it from an image of a battle to, well, what it says, an accident. Is it the holder of the sword that’s hurt though, or someone else? Wonderful. 🙂

  3. I’m with Phoenix on the first haiku; I know how the tree fairy feels. Hopefully she’ll feel warmer soon enough.

    That second one, though. Ooof. Are you sure it was an accident? Because it sounds pretty painful… 😉
