Haiku: Happy Valentine

Hello people, here ’tis my haiku for Ronovan Write’s Haiku Challenge #83: Gem & Flame.




I’ve used the Haiku in English form ( 5 / 7 / 5  syllables)

The two sentences:

Burning words of love flaming like gems of heartsblood.

Flaming like gems of heartsblood, my crushed valentine.

Okay, I admit they aren’t great sentences.  🙂

Image:  I photographed this rose on a bed of ash especially for the challenge. I hope I captured the intended ‘feel’ of my haiku.

Have a good day.   🙂


I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.
