Ben’s weekly poetry, #Haiku

Gosh, thank you so much for visiting my blog.

This post is for my main man – David ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

My poem is in response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge.ย We poets, even dog poets, write a structured poem containing synonyms of two words prompts which Colleen usually provides (Click here for the guidelines). However, for the first poem of each month we select our own words. This week I am using the words rock and roll. I’ve chosen them for two reasons. Firstly, because I’m in a good mood. My male person came home from hospital on Wednesday and we are a complete unit again. I like to do a bit of dancing about when I’m happy. Then, when I went outside today I saw our Willow tree rocking and rolling in the stormy winds at our house; they were awful. When I tried to play ball, I had no way of knowing where my ball was going to end up. I got v. v. v dizzy ๐Ÿ˜“

This is my Haiku, I so hope you like it.

Watch the willow bend
Swaying arcs in reeling wind
Supple fronds for art
