RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #92 has given us the prompt words of “Life & Path.”

In addition, we are able to link to the 52 Week Photo Challenge hosted by some of our Haiku Challenge friends in unison with the above prompt words. This week’s photo prompt is “Path.”

Her life path is clear –

A fairy whisperer writes,

As nymphs murmur near.

  1. Judy E Martin – United Kingdom – In my (very) early 50s, wife and mum, have worked in the community and hospital settiings as an Associate Practitioner (nursing). I have now just started on my journey to obtain my degree in nursing so am a student again! I come from a large family (plenty of ammo there for my blog), I love music (as long as it's 1980's or before), and words (so much we can do with them)! Oh, and last of all, I love to laugh, and hopefully make others laugh as well!

    I love this, everything about it. The picture and the haiku so magical 🙂

  2. Richard Ankers – United Kingdom – Richard M. Ankers is the English author of The Eternals Series and Britannia Unleashed all published by Next Chapter. Richard feels privileged to have had stories and poetry published all over the world. He lives to write. A prolific writer, a constant source of clearing his mind, Richard has created this website to share just some of the many poems and prose he has written that would otherwise have fallen by the wayside. Reading and writing have always been Richard's main love along with the pursuit of keeping fit, running, walking, and anything that provides a spectacular view. Running in the rain with his headphones on whilst dreaming up some future storyline is just about perfect. It would be nicer still if that run was in Switzerland or Norway, but we can't have everything. Oh, and coffee, lots and lots of coffee.

    Very lovely 🙂
