V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #72: wish

What’s in a wish? Do you dare to dream, to wish? This week, I challenge you to set your imagination free, unlock your heart, and wish.

Gratitude

 

A big heartfelt thanks

For being there in torrid days

And holding my hand

Your presence is more than enough

And touch comforting a lot

#Haikai Challenge #112 (11/10/19): Veterans Day/Beaver Moon #haiku #senryu #haibun #tanka #haiga #renga

Remembering all

Sung or unsung veterans

Fought in world war one

No lesson we learned

And indulged in World war two

World war three will ensure

 

There Won’t be world war four 

 

Armistice Day

Indian army’s unsung role and sacrifices in World War I Men of Indian Army were heroes, some recognized but mostly unsung. Their stories and their heroism have long been omitted from popular histories of the war.

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that states or alludes to withering wind (kogarashi).

 

making trees barren

The mighty withering wind 

Blows off all the leaves

———————-

 clinging  to the trees 

leaves know not how to survive 

the withering wind

———————————————-

cling on to the truth

fear, not the withering wind

fight with all your might
