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! Check out his new book: Amber Wake! This week’s words are: Lift & Plan.

*Note: new Behind the Scenes post about my WIP progress!

“To Catch”
He lifted a net
The plan now taking effect,
centaurs unaware.
Swords lift from their grasp
As magic yanks weapons free,
Dark mage’s plan wins.

How to read a haiku as 2 separate sentences:
Swords lift from their grasp, As magic yanks weapons free,
As magic yanks weapons free, Dark mage’s plan wins.

  1. I like the stories in these two. I’ve got a wonderful image in my mind from the second, and the first – I’m not sure whether to warn the centaurs or not. :/

  2. Ooooh, naughty naughty narrator in #1! He should learn to leave those poor centaurs alone! 😉

    *lol* Kidding, of course. Both haikus are very good, and very fantasy-ish. They actually seem to parallel one another, showing different sides of the ambush. #1 could be the mage’s, and #2 could be the centaurs. Was that intended? Or did you write them as two separate, unconnected pieces?

    • Hahaha! I don’t think he’s in his right mind, because centaurs are quite tough. I wouldn’t want to face their wrath! 😀
      At first I began them as separate, but then I thought a connection between the two would be fun. So it’s a bit of both: connected, but also can be separate if the reader prefers. 🙂
