HAIKU

Magpie No. 4

drops of semi precious stones
a purple shroud.
Mighty Hanuman triumphs.


Thank you Willow for posting your interesting prompt early this week. It has helped me to post both my reply to it and my own, unrelated, post following below, on the same afternoon.

  8. I am always interested in the haiku
    response to a poetic challenge.
    I find it difficult to reduce my
    thoughts to such a precise meter,
    but love when others can.
    Nice response to the mag,
    and makes me want to know
    more about Lord Hanuman.
