Haiku #1 – Envy

Here is my very first attempt at haiku writing. I am honestly fascinated with modern poetry and just starting to learn about it.

This was written in response to the image prompt☝🏽and word prompt – Envy.

Hopefully, this will be a not-so-bad attempt at haiku writing. I really want to get better so please let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks 🙏🏽


Night bathed in jade
Writhing dark thorns of envy
Yearning moon’s twilight 

Haiku written for Eugie’s Weekly Prompt – Envy, February 15, 2022

I am a book loving, adventure seeking introvert, and life itself is my inspiration. I am passionate about personal growth, and love to write about self improvement & mental health, whenever I’m not embarking in some otherworldly adventure.

  1. Excellent haiku, Tia! If you meant to write a 5/7/5 haiku you would need another syllable in the first line. (bathed is one syllable). Here is a link to the site of our syllabic poem expert – Colleen Cheseboro. Note, not all haiku have to be 5/7/5 but there should be a consistency of syllables whether 5/7/5; 3/5/3, or 2/3/2. https://wordcraftpoetry.com/tanka-tuesday-poetry-cheat-sheet-for-tanka-tuesday-poetry-challenges/

    Wonderful take on the prompt and thank you for joining in.
