Hi everyone! Today, I’ve joined Colleen’s weekly TankaTuesday challenge for the first time. You can find her post HERE.

Below is the image prompt and my Haiku response in a 3-5-3 syllabic format.

Cold dark night

on the bereaved soul

moon shines hope

  1. A lovely poem, Harmony. I’m looking forward to seeing your poems every week. I have shared to our FB poetry group. I know you aren’t on FB but just so you know.

    • 😂I’m ashamed to confess I only saw that on my third or fourth re-read! 😂 Awesome title for an awesome book. So thrilled you enjoyed the Haiku, Joan 💕🙂

  2. Yay! I’m so glad you tried the challenge, Harmony! I love how you captured not only the pain but the hope offered! Fantastic take on the picture. xo

  3. Yes! This is perfect, Harmony. I like how you picked up on “the souls.” The image is so provocative by mirroring the horrors of today’s world. I’m over the moon that you jumped in! 🧡
