An echoing trill
Her last breath, his manic thrill
And all remained still
Only the new moon
Silent witness, thought the loon
His joy much too soon
The source of pleasure
Through charm he’d add a treasure
New pain, no measure.
The mute eye watcher
Would become, Jolly Roger
A screaming stalker
Once upon a time
This tale told in sneezing rhyme
Happy end bring mine.
This haiku versed poetry is brought to you in response to Ronovan’s Haiku challenge. This weeks challenge words are: Trill and Final. I’ve replaced the word “final” with the word “last”, since they have the same meaning.
An interesting phrase in the poem is “Jolly Roger“, which has the meaning: a pirate’s flag with a white skull and crossbones on a black background – hmm I did not know that, so I’d thought to share. It popped up as I was looking for rhymes.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks sneeze inspired poetry. Check out this link for more Haiku of the week.
