RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #75 Charm&Look



Today I’m writing  three haiku using Ronovan’s prompt words for this week : charm and look.

My first two haiku are the usual 5,7, 5 format but the last one is 3,5,3 thought I’d try that for a change.

My haiku is based upon a character in my manuscript, who I intend to develop so I thought I’d write this haiku with her in mind…


Sad Mirror Girl


The Sad Mirror Girl

Look but you can never touch

Her sweet charms are locked


Look! Lost child’s report

Weird reflections greet her now

No charm can save her


Look! How her Tears fall

Captured in charming glass walls

Lonely Mirror girl


Look! Spell cast

A Puzzle perhaps

No escape?

Poor soul, can you imagine? I think I will really have to get my sad hat on to write more about this particular character.


I’ve got to get ready for work now, must dash, hope that The Mirror Girl piqued your interest.

Bye for now, got to fuel up with a good breakfast…. Not sure if I’ve got time for eggs and bacon but you can always imagine can’t you…

    Oh, I’m feeling rather sad and worried about The Mirror Girl. I enjoyed these haikus and it’s definitely whetted my interest to read more. 😀Have a good day at work and hope it isn’t too manic!

    That’s fabulous Marjorie, even if it is sad, yet intriguing. I’m sharing to my Haiku Pinterest board. 🙂


  5. “Captured in charming glass walls” – I love that line and all it implies. Well done.
