Edge – TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge


Knife glitters under

moonlight, buried in velvet

with no soft heart. Pause…


Think, reconsider

do not take that final step.

Turn back from the edge.


It’s time for TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge, where this week our prompt is ‘edge’. This is also the prompt for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, so I’m also entering there too!

The photo above is of Beachy Head, a beauty spot on the Sussex coast, and also, sadly, a magnet for those who feel that life is too much for them. The cliffs are just too irresistible.  A local charity, the Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team patrol the clifftops in order to give as much help and support to those in distress as they possibly can and save many lives in the process.

By the way, I am not on that precipice, please don’t worry! It was just the first thing that came to mind when seeing the prompt word…

  1. Ironically I found your post through a pingback created to my post. I have been swamped with wrapping up the collaboration. Sorry.
    A lovely read, as always, Freya.

    1. Don’t worry at all! I never comment on other’s work expecting them to return the favour. Of course, it is welcome if that happens, though! I struggle to keep up – that’s life! I hope things are going OK and not becoming too overwhelming!

      1. Not overwhelming, thank you, Freya. No, it’s just a challenge to find a balance. Time to do one’s own writing, time to read ( fodder for my writing) and following etiquette in the blogosphere. I don’t know how those with thousands of followers do it. Thanks for understanding. While never tit-for-tat, I do feel compelled to reciprocate. It’s why we write, so that others will read, right?
        Have a great weekend.

      2. Oh yes, I know what you mean about etiquette – it is important! I too have no idea how those with thousands of followers manage… Enjoy your weekend – and here’s to balance!
