Winter Haiku Challenge

Our prompt words this week are joy and freedom.  I decided to take a different route this week.  To learn more about Ronovan’s challenge – click here.

Lemon Pie

Delight in the day –

as choices in life are free,

the cost comes later.

Thanks to my friend Ronovan, for hosting this great challenge that makes us stretch our wits each week in the wonderful world of Haiku!

Until next time,

About Colleen M. Chesebro

Colleen M. Chesebro is an American Novelist & Poet who loves writing paranormal fantasy and magical realism, cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood—or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Faery Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen won the “Little and Laugh” Flash Fiction Contest sponsored by the Carrot Ranch Literary Community on November 2017, and in 2018, she won first place for the “Twisted Travel” category. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, Colleen enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. Learn more about Colleen on colleenchesebro.com.

  1. I love making lemon meringue pie too, for special occasions. 🙂

  2. Great Haiku! The words ring true.

  4. I love the way you took this. <3

  5. One of my favourite desserts, Colleen, along with Banoffee Pie, but not while I’m on the “Hugh Diet”. Well maybe just a small portion.

    Your haiku is certainly one to think about this week. It’s almost like the saying “look before you leap”.

    • It sure is Hugh… Or eat now, and pay later! I am on the Hugh diet too. I have started culling my crew. 😀💐

      • Oh good to hear. I know it sounds nasty but the time I have got back since doing it has been unbelievable. Good luck with it and do let us know how you get on. I’m interested to know if it does work for others.

        Next time you bake a Lemon Meringue pie, could I place an order for one? 🙂

  6. Very close to life 😃

  7. Yummy pie, oh my
