Ronovan’s haiku prompts this week are ‘new’ and ‘year’ –obvious perhaps, but not really, when caught up with life’s activities– these words dragged me out of preoccupations such as cookie making, cookie eating, seasonal blues, road trips, kicking a touch of flu, and so on, into a reflective ‘end-of-the-year zone’. As the year ends, I find myself appreciating the time I have spent participating in this haiku community– which has been every week since I first joined in July at prompt #52. This week I have written a Troiku that is based on a haiku using the prompt words (in red). You’ll notice that the closing stanza is also a haiku using the prompt words.
Earth's orbit complete, Tired year almost over, New ventures glimmer.
Earth's orbit complete, Our journey measured in months, We circled the sun.
Tired year almost over, Looking back we sigh, Time's flow is relentless.
New ventures glimmer in year's embers, hope ignites, fresh dreams inspire. ∼ Happy New Year! © 2015, All rights reserved by ontheland.wordpress.com
