Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge #75 – Charm & Look


haiku-challenge-image.pngMonday is Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge, and last night I was so busy wrapping gifts for kids teachers and writing Christmas cards, I was unable to post my entry.  So here it is, on a Tuesday morning instead!

Oh he has raised the bar again this week, has Ron! Yes, you can do your usual haiku using the prompt words, Look & Charm, but the added challenge is to have the haiku with opposing sentences. So the first be a positive and a second a negative… or something like that!

And another extra, try and write a Freku… this consists of free verse, and a traditional haiku that ties the whole feel of the verse in 3 lines.


Check his challenge out here.

Ok, So I have had a go. Let’s see whether I actually got this right, or whether I should stick to what I know!

Unaware, I fell for you
And all that you did say
How did you beguile me so
And trick me in such a way?

I thought we were together
Like one, forever more
I gave my love, my heart to you
Then you walked right out the door

Broken now, I stand here
Feeling used and so unpure
I gave my innocence to you
All that talk was just a lure


Looking like a gent
You blinded me with your charms
Like a proper cad

    That haiku sums it up perfectly, however, that being said, I did like the flow of the top half.
