Haiku: Poet's Pen

Imagine you hold a bag which contains two objects: one which can heal and one which can harm. Only you may identify these two objects through touch, texture, shape-recognition and imaginative exploration. Which object would you withdraw first? Does the good out-weigh the bad, or is harm something that cannot be prevented? Use one of these two items as the starting point of your poem and move towards the other in conclusion. It is up to you whether you will begin with the healing or harmful thing. Lastly, the hidden objects may be either real or abstract.

  1. Makes me think of two things--writer's block, and the saying that you should never piss off an author because you may end up in one of their books!

  2. It is through writing that we expose the truth and shine light onto the world. Let us be heard and break through oppressive silence. A wonderful and inspiring haiku. Thank you, Rita :)

  3. How clever of you to separate the word pen-knife! This shows perfectly how the pen is mightier than the sword.

  4. So much expressed in few words here! Enjoyed.

  5. Wow! This says so much, so powerfully. Well done!

  6. An excellent haiku, and a singular response to the prompt. Well done!

  7. This is my first Haiku experience..and it truly made me ponder...when we talk a lot...I mean a lot of words do not need a lot of thought but to put across an idea in so few words...is an art. This is an inspiration to talk lesser and convey more.
