The King is in the Altogether

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge

The wise see greatness
where the fool discerns nothing . . .

“See, how great I am!”

This ‘king’ is altogether
Wise as the day he was born

a second effort written in tanka form in response to this week’s RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #139 – “King” and “Day” and inspired by the song,’The King’s New Clothes’ (Burl Ives) from the film “Hans Christian Andersen” (1952) (Frank Loesser) – based on the 1837 children’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by Hans Christian Andersen

The People have seen a Great Light

A great Light has dawned
On those living in darkness –
Life overcomes death

written in response to this week’s prompt at Haiku Horizons, inspired by Isaiah 9:2, quoted in the gospel of Matthew

Silence is Golden

Susurrus gossip
Distracting murmuration –
Silence is golden

written in response to today’s prompt at The Daily Posttoday’s prompt at The Daily Post

‘A gossip betrays a confidence;
    so avoid anyone who talks too much.’

– Proverbs 20:19
