Cost Of Victory & Determination #haiku #poems

Haiku for RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Challenge—a fun activity and contest that is open for everyone to participate, and helps keep our creative writer’s brain active! This week’s words: Leap & Throb.

“Cost Of Victory”

Her heart throbbed with pain
Though it also leaped with joy
The victory won
Though at a terrible price
Many lives altered.

~

“Determination”

He ignored the throb
Leaped up on the prosthetic
—Determined to walk.

  1. Nice job once again. “Determination” reminded me of the show Black Sails, which features a young version of the fictional pirate Long John Silver. His character loses part of one leg during the show, and because of the time period he obviously can’t rely on prosthetics to help him get around. I’ve been trying to find out how the actor who played him was able to portray his disability, since in real life he has both legs.
