Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #147 Leap&Throb

After a week's vacation, part of which was in an area where we needed to keep an eye out for snakes, the prompt at Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #147 Leap&Throb took a direction that I suspect not too many took. Curious what others wrote for the challenge this week? Click the link and see the links of those who took the challenge.

  1. If I met up with this fellow it would probably cause my heart to stop! Snakes scare me, in their ability to move so quickly and strike so swiftly, although I have to admit that they are beautiful... from a distance! :-) Very nicely done Haiku, clever use of the prompt words!
