Making way...

Carpe Diem Special #127... The haiku written by lio Sogi for inspiration is -

Both grasses and trees
waiting for the moon
dewy evening

© Iio Sogi

The goal is to write a haiku inspired by this. And then use that haiku to write a Troiku.

This is my first attempt at writing a Troiku.

The Haiku written by me -

Lighting moon
light fades away
candle melts

The Troiku -

Lighting moon
big brother smiles
distant warmth

Light fades away
encompassing horizon
Enchanting adieu

Candle melts
eyes await beloved
Tears of wax

Human Trafficking

Penning thoughts of what you are feeling how can I? A few days when in material comforts life's essence was changing he was dying I felt shattered I had so much still family, and love, and home what happens when you lose it all? Do you lose yourself too? Enslaved, Uncertain Years on returning home they call it a rescue Am I happy? What am I returning to, I have a home? ©Nimi Arora Prompt by and Shared with- Poets United Midweek Motif - Human Trafficking

Fear - Quadrille

What worse is possible? I fear these words I have heard them often When they were in pain When they’d lost a lot They said they’d lost all I know of worse I’ve heard stories And tons I don’t know Much worse is possible ©Nimi Arora Prompt by and Shared with- Quadrille #37 - Be Not Afraid
