Haiku Heights Prompt: Stone

I haven’t written any Haiku lately but seeing the lovely creations of my friends inspired me to give it another shot. This is for the prompt “Stone” which somehow reminded me of the cruel and barbaric practice of stoning and the fact that it is still practiced in parts of the world known to me …


Red tinged stone
Punish me with pain
I embrace death

This follow up Haiku is by a dear blogger friend Alice Keys.

“blood soaked altar
welcome freedom from the past
dissolve into God”

  1. Glad you are trying your pen at haikus again. You are really good at them. I’ve written in many poetic forms, but I haven’t been able to get with haikus for some reason. This is quite powerful.

    1. Thank you so much Maryam. The image of stoning came to my head and I had to write it. Haiku is a hit or miss for me but sometimes it just comes out! I really appreciate your feedback. Have a great day 🙂 Parmis

    1. Thank you so much! I also really loved visiting your blog and reading the “what is a stone” post especially the second Haiku. Have a great day 🙂
