“Dreams,” a Haiku

Welcome to my contribution to my Weekly #Poetry Challenge, where you can write your own Haiku, Tanka, or Haibun using the prompt words of lead & save. Remember, synonyms are encouraged. Please read the directions on my challenge post to make sure you are following the rules for these forms of poetry.

The best poetry has layers of meaning.

This week, I decided to write a Haiku, called “Dreams.” I used “guides” for “lead” and “rescue” for “save.”

Both words have many connotations. Depending on how you use your synonyms you can alter the meaning of your prose & poetry in many ways. Don’t be afraid to experiment with synonyms. Sometimes subtle meanings pack the most punch in your poetry. Play with the words for different reactions.

Fairy spirit guides –
rescue me from my wild dreams,
fear controls my heart.
