Haiku challenge: Star & Child

Lovely prompt from Ronovan this week.


Child wished for the moon,

Velvet black the sky that night,

I reached her down a star.


Star child weeps cold rain

For all the lost and lonely,

Searching in the night.


In the sky a star,

In the star a child watches

Blue planet spinning.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I wondered about that cryptic comment, also. Say what? Ha ha! Anyways, the first haiku was magically delightful, the second evoked an emotional tug at the heart, and the third triggered my imagination. All of them are wonderful, Jane.

    1. Glad the haiku had you looking at the stars, Denis. I’ve always wanted a telescope, but when you live in town all you get is glare unless you get a really good (expensive) piece of equipment.
