Random Words Haiku – 1

This is my first time for linking with Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie …  “Heeding Haiku with HA”:

“… this week, I prompt you to undertake an activity whereby you pick three random words and craft a haiku or tanka highlighting them.  You can randomly open a page or three pages of a Dictionary and have your three words or you can take the assistance of an online random word generator (search on Google, there are many).  You can ask a friend to give you three words or you can ask us if you want, in the comments down below.  Yves (MLM) or I would reach back to you with them as soon as we can.

Shortly after blogging — I discovered and started reading “Wordle” entries whenever the posts showed up in my reader.  I am fascinated, but as of yet, have not participated in one.  This seems like a shortened version.  I’ll start with that! 😀

First for me is a “word generator” — I asked “Dr Google” — and used Creative Random Word Generator.   The three (3) words provided:  moss, dance, kite


Twilight Dance

Moss covered stones
Enchantresses twilight dance
Black kite pauses flight

      Thank you —
      For some reason — Wordles seem overwhelming for me … I will work myself up to them sooner or later!! 😀


      • I know what you mean Becca I was afraid of them as well and I wasn’t all that satisfied with my first attempts. Now I find them both fun and inspiring, What you’ve done here incorporating 3 words into a haiku which is an extremely concise poetry form is probably much harder than incorporating a few words, some of which you likely already use comfortably into a piece of no specified length. If you want you can still participate in the Wordles I host, use as many words as you dare and then eventually work your way upwards. I certainly don’t mind if you only pick 3 words to start =)


  3. Well done. That was quite a challenge.

      Thank you, Joss! I was fortunate with the selection and the need to only use 3. I enjoy reading Wordles but am a bit intimidated by the “full-blown” Wordle. I will work my way up! 😀 Happy Weekend!!
