Today I visited the blog of Vashti Quiorz-Vega, as she was next to me in the #LMMLinkup. She introduced me to a Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge. It is offered by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes. [bctt tweet=” If you’ve followed me long enough you probably know how much I love writing haiku.” username=”GaylWright”] So when I found this challenge how could I resist? Each week Ronovan gives two words as a prompt to use in writing a haiku. [bctt tweet=”The challenge is open to anyone, and he provides tips on how to write a haiku.” username=”GaylWright”] If you choose to participate you write a post that includes your haiku. Then go share your link in the comments section of his blog. The two challenge words for this week are Gold & Sing.
I wrote about the sunset
I sing of beauty
As fingers of gold shimmer
Sunset casts its spell
Be sure to check out Ronovan Writes to learn more about the weekly haiku challenge.

Good morning Gayle,
your collection of words would paint a picture without the picture! It sounds like a site I would enjoy. Saw you again on Kelly’s link-up and glad I stopped by again. I’ll return1
by the way, love your snow!
Carol, thank you so much for your encouraging words! As a poet I would hope my words would paint a picture, but it doesn’t always work out. So this makes me happy! If you like writing haiku, I know you would love joining in the challenge each week. I hope you check it out!
Glad you like the snow! I found a simple plug-in for WordPress. 🙂
Blessings to you!
I remember loving to write these in highschool. 🙂 Thanks for linking up with Literacy Musing Mondays.
