I have other haiku pending publication in the next issue of the magazine and two more accepted for publication. 

These are the haiku that didn't quite make it.



Road map or star sign?

Constellations plot our route

We choose to follow



Rocket into space

Expected trajectory

Venus and beyond



Countdown now complete

Canister launches through space

Wormhole approaching





Animals in space

Each piloting a rocket

Schrödinger bemused

A Crime of Passion ~ RFW ~ Driven to Murder


I have been spring cleaning, now that the sunshine has FINALLY returned and the viruses are gone. Whilst ironing, I came up with my own belated and rather off-the-cuff entry for RFW's March Madness challenge, in the form of a POEM that fits the theme: Driven to Murder.
Since Romance has its primary focus on the relationship and romantic love between two people with an emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending, I felt uncomfortable about writing a prose romance piece that had the sensual mixed with violence. So, instead, I chose a more direct approach in the form of this poem.
