My First Attempt at a Haiku

I never thought I’d be adding a poetry section to my blog, yet here it is. In my creative writing class we had to write a haiku about any subject we wanted. So, me being the fantasy writer than I am, went for an archaic, fantasy style haiku. Now, I’m no poet, by any means, and I envy anyone with the skill to produce deep, meaningful poems that stun and awe readers. However, I think this is decent for my first try. I’ll accept any and all input, and encourage it, of course.

Valor at the battle next

    • Thanks! I don’t know how much I’ll delve into poetry. I’m sure I’ll post whatever I write for my Creative Writing class. Maybe I’ll step it up and do a poetry week or something, ha.

      • Chris, would it be alright with you if I put this haiku in the first issue of my fantasy ezine Into the Willows? I’d credit you of course, and provide a link back and a short bio if you’d like. Do let me know. πŸ™‚

      • Great! πŸ™‚ Could I have a short bio to put with the poem? Send the bio to intothewillowssubmissions @ and I’ll email you when the issue goes live. Thanks!

I know you have thoughts, and I want to hear them...
