War and Fame

Today, I was reading Silver Threading‘s post on being positive, a delightful article, when I came across something interesting – Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge. Two words are provided as a prompt to write a haiku every week. I thought it was a fun activity to challenge creativity. So, I thought I’d give it a go. 🙂

Word prompt: War & Fame

War & Fame

The blood lust of war
Painted crimson through the lands
Fame of tyrants mar
