The aspiring novelist – haiku challenge

Rare, indeed, is he

Who can accept a critique

Of his art with grace.

It is rarely done

Well, said his harsh judge, for once

In full agreement.

This is part of Ronovan’s Haiku challenge #32

    A double haiku? That’s rare. But I won’t be a harsh critic. I think you have done well. 🙂

    Like reading a passage of a novel. Greatly enjoyed it and shared it. Loved the wording and how it all flowed. If this is how your books are then I am envious.

  4. I really enjoyed the flow of this and the idea presented is so accurate and cleverly expressed in so few words, yet doesn’t feel like some are missing out of necessity to fit Haiku criteria. Well done.
