Last Breath – NaPoWriMo 2015 – Day 27 (to prompt!)

with me
through the garden,

my hand,
prevent my fall,

the process
through it all,

with me
on the patio,

Watch birds playing
Catch last breath


Today’s prompt: “It’s the hay(na)ku)….a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem.” Maureen directs us to Vince Gotera who ends his with a couplet of three words per line to create a hay(na)ku sonnet. Simple yet effective, yes?

  1. I love this Rob! And yes, very effective. Sorry I’ve missed a few, Ive been wrapped up in trying to arrange this book launch – not easy trying to get a date that suits everyone! Just sorted then had to change again! Keep calm Chris! 😄
