30 Haikus in 30 Days: 8-10


The prompts are getting more challenging, but I’m still plugging along in the 2014 November Chapbook Challenge, (via Poetic Asides). So far, I’m ahead of my goal of 30 Haikus in 30 Days (in conjunction with the challenge).

Prompt: Write a poem based on something in the news.

Days grow short as the sun hides
Time cannot be saved

human folly is to blame
Wake up! Millions died

The fisherman waits
worm on a hook, tempting bait
Wise old fish won’t bite
