Becky’s Haiku: Lightning and Rain

IMG_20160420_100034375

Lightning flashed across

The stormy sky while rain dripped

And drizzled outside.

A dark and gloomy

Day filled with clouds and peals of

Thunder claps aloud.

Tis nice to remain

At home inside where I can

Watch the storm and hide.

I just attempted another of Ronovan’s Haiku challenge using the words “lightning” and “rain”.  For this and more Haiku challenges you can visit: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

 

Becky’s Haiku: Not Invited

004

Like a dragon roar,

The uninvited storm then

Thundered through the door.

I have just attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “dragon” and “invite”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  If you like challenges and haiku’s then I invite you to also accept Ronovan’s latest challenge at this link: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/

Becky’s Haiku: Breathe

456

Step outside and breathe;

See the sunlit sky stretch out

Like the rolling sea.

Inhale the sweet scent

Of Spring with new grass and leaves

Vibrantly blooming.

Hear the wind blow; A

warm yet rustling breeze jostling

the tall dancing trees.

Feel the sun’s warmth as

It softly surrounds you in

It’s orange glowing hue.

Hark the song bird’s chirps

In melodious trills in

The forest and hills.

Look with hope upon

The sunrise letting it fill

Your soul searching eyes.

And let the peace of

This gentle beginning stay

In your heart resting.

May the journey of

This new day begin; a fresh

Though unearned blessing.

Savor the moments

Knowing each is fleeting and

Yet a treasured gift.

Stroll and wander on

Your way remembering this

Day that God has made.

 

Becky’s Haiku: Fray, Veil, and Secret

252

More frayed by trials

 of life, then I veil growing

fear deep down inside.

Oh yes hidden fears

And insecurities; such

Secrets I do keep.

Like shadows in the

darkness, anxiety hides

beneath the surface.

Need to release that

Worry; let go of that fear

While to God, draw near.

Need to have faith and

Believe that He stays near to

Help and comfort me.

Remember his ways

And his love while looking to

Heaven far above.

Take his hand and let

Him lead through this new day and

His blessings receive.

When the day is done

And time to rest remember he

Stays near and knows best.

Say a prayer filled with

Sincere gratitude while he

Keeps watch over you.

Guest Poet: Kathy B

 

Misty Rose Bush

My sweet and talented cousin wrote a very beautiful haiku and wanted to share it. She is a very busy lady right now as she is working hard on her college degree and completing an internship. However, she will be struck by a creative burst of writing when time allows and so here she is in her own words:

Kathy’s Haiku: Sheltering Friends

Sheltering my friend

Like Jesus told us to do

Love I try to send.

Becky’s Haiku: Friend and Shiver

Springtime, friends, and strolls

By the river; sweet joys make

Me smile and shiver.

Becky’s Haiku: Lift and Plan

014

Sun is lifting and

Time to follow the plan God

Has outlined today.

Take a stroll and find

That rutted path where in the

Warm sun He awaits.

See that forest and

In those trees, find your trail

 in nature’s beauty.

Rise up and take that

 stroll; or this day’s adventure

You will never know.

Becky’s Haiku: Class and Firm

746

Mountain pines towered,

Nature’s class of elegance;

Resolute and firm.

In time they’ve weathered

Through storms of wind, snow, and rain

Solid, determined.

They’re a testament

To all who journey and see

Their hidden beauty.

I have just attempted yet another haiku challenge from Ronovan Writes blog using the words “class” and “firm”. I am enjoying the challenge of putting different and even opposite words in such a short poem.  The challenge can be in just determining a suitable topic to bring the words together.  Plenty of times, I have sat here looking at a blank page just trying to think of such a subject.

Becky’s Haiku: Midnight Flash Dance

018

As lightning flashed across the dark sky,

It danced eerily in the night.
