Hope in rags

Tyrant’s stern lips press

against a twitching thumb, eyes

girl in rags, gleam hope




Inspired by  Ronovan Writes Challenge #205   Especially liked this week’s combination of words: Tyrant and hope. Somewhat contradictory — exactly what can create some great poetry.

A similar haiku to this that I used the same image for, is titled Defiant Hope  Really proud of this poem, and it was one of the first haikus that I had written in a long time (from back when I first started this blog two years ago!)
