Seeking #Haiku 271

Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge keeps me writing, compelling me to continue doing what I love even when I don’t feel “inspired” or more so when I can’t find the mental space.

Haiku is an art, and not easy. But for an amateur like me, sometimes it is “easy enough” to create so I return time and time again. Frankly, what I do is more senryu than haiku, but I am not quibbling ๐Ÿ™‚

So for this week:

fierce wind lashed, crushing
ache within; a frenzied mind
seeks quiet, let be.
~ FlorenceT

The haiku is a contribution to Ronovan’sย Haiku Challenge #271. This week’s prompt words are FIERCE and FEVER.

If you are interested in participating, go to RonovanWrites and check out his weekly challenge published every Monday – it comes with “how-to” if you are new to writing haiku.ย  Try it! ๐Ÿ™‚
