Our Ronovan chose the word STILL this week . Those of us who want to combine it with our haiku for Monday’s Haiku Challenge prompt of (CALM & STORM) can.

The two CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so.

Stay quiet and keep you mouth shut.
There’s no point in shaking the cage.
You don’t want to awake the rage.
So don’t let the Genie get out
It’s best he stays locked up no doubt.
This is the calm before the storm
The moment just before the dawn
No need to move as all is still
Balanced on a porcupine’s quill
Please let this be a new age dawn.

    It was so painful to watch, the debate. His cult members think he did great. 😣

    No, not happy, but there is that hope of a new dawn. “Balanced on a porcupine quill” — my favorite line in your poem. We just have to keep our balance. ❤❤❤
