Heating up


Fiery red invades

the sun freckles his face, hot

burning her to shreds


Hi guys, hope you enjoy this haiku! It was written for Haiku Horizon’s Spot Prompt

I did a slightly more “abstract” take on the prompt. So instead of using the word “spot” as a noun, or even a verb, I decided to incorporate the image of spots. In this case, the freckles on his face are “spots.” Let me know what you think!

Comments, love, and critique are much appreciated ❤


  1. Lovely! I have never tried to write a haiku before – I may give it a go! I admire anyone who can work from a prompt – my mind seems to go blank!
