Sunset Beauty is Something to Sing About

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

Sunset

I sing of beauty

As fingers of gold shimmer

Sunset casts its spell

      1. 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!
