Ebb and Flow Of Poetic Challenges

My participation in Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge is very unpredictable. It all depends upon the ebb and flow of fluids within my grey matter.

The two words provided to us this week:  Tide & Flesh.

*

Flesh and blood humans
Riding on the tides of time
Helpless dummies

*

Go with the flow
Or use might against the tide
Triumph be the goal

*

Burn yourself out
Melt your flesh and bone
Tides will change

*

Nation advances
A rising tide lifts all boats
All lives boom

*

Causing big tides
Mighty Moon flexes its muscles
I rule the Earth!!

*

Receding tides brought
A mermaid’s body on the beach
Sea’s beautiful gift

Yayyyy!!  (still counting the haiku).

  1. Stern determination, coupled with unflinching focus, appears to have powered your efforts to tide over weakness of flesh, to construct these words and images, Alka. The challenge has been well taken…

    • Weakness of flesh in my case is always procrastination and laziness, which once overcome, there is either spontaneous flow of thoughts or else all blank.
      Thanks for appreciating!
