Ronovan’s Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #64. ‘Tide’ & ‘Flesh’

Ron has really got me scratching my head this week to think of a suitable Haiku (actually, mine are never suitable) which uses ‘tide’ and ‘flesh’ for his weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge

This is what I came up with:

Heaving, at high tide

waves crashing and battering

Strips flesh from frail bones.

  1. Gosh – powerful and strong Eddie!
    You Haiku makes me think of the refugees drowning in the Med. How my heart aches to feel so impotent in the face of this crisis for humanity. It amazes me how these emotions can be stirred by so few words – these Haikus have power.
