Just Jot it January. Stream of Consciousness Saturday, Movement Ripples. Haiku.

This is my entry for Just Jot it January,and today being Saturday it is also Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

So our prompt for #SoCs from Linda of Life in Progress is movement. Now just to throw something different into the mix she has told not to use the actual word movement but to pick a type of movement and use that in our post. So do it, be creative but make sure you enjoy.

Rules and Prompts




The green grass ripples

Like a wave on a green sea

Sent from ripples spread.

Ripe, ready for the cut

The golden corn undulates

The harvest awaits.

The crowd rises up

A Mexican wave sweeps through

Huge ripples of joy

Fright Night Tanka

I walk all alone

Demons snapping at my heels

Scared and with no home

Through the kingdom of the moon

Fear above me swoops and whields.

Witches, goblins, making mischief

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #171 Lake&Calm

This week Ronovanwrites has given us the two words Lake and Calm.

I wrote a trio of Haiku, a before, during  and after.

   Lake and Calm

Gently the lake flows

Softly bathed in the moonlight

So deep and so calm

The waves  lap my toes

The water fills me with calm

At one with the lake

Cold, pulled from the lake

In death she looked peaceful, calm

All her travails gone.

Tell me why you haunt me still

You left on a row

I died, you haunt me from life.

No ghost of a chance

I try  hard not to totter

These high heels haunt me.

You have broken me

Tenderness  is at the heart

Of all that  I need.


Once a work of art

Destroyed, spite lays at the heart

Jealousy maybe

Spoiled because of its beauty

Is this envy what we need.
