Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #242 Scream & Feather

Chief Screaming Feather

An over tired five year old

Who hates taking naps

Attitude towards the new job

Was not received well

Julia’s Child


I tried

And fell short

To make dinner

Come out really good

Oh, there’s lots of flavor

Somewhat, a bit of texture

But I would not serve this to you

I will eat the seven pints myself

And try a different method next time ‘round

meal deal



Locked their doors

They could feel the

Disturbance growing

Children everywhere froze

Staring at their plates blankly

It was a fate far worse than death

Strapped in high chairs, there was no escape

Mothers made them eat their vegetables

blessing or curse


Easily enough

Hear the wind

Shadows move

In a blink, thoughts drift away

Never to return

playful patriarch

Father sky looked down

To see branches reaching up

And waving his way

To show he was a friend, true

He surrounded them with blue

roll tape

The power of glue

Coiled on a dispenser

To be portioned out

Your best friend when gift wrapping

If it’s not stuck on itself
