Inspire & Loss

For week #48 of Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge, the word prompts are ‘inspire’ and ‘loss’. These two words led me to daydream (at 10p.m. at night, no less) about a story where a woman suffered a great loss that affected her deeply, causing a profound change in her beliefs and life’s purpose. She was inspired to change her direction and vocation from a life dedicated to purely materialistic pursuits to being more concerned and caring about society.

Inspire & Loss

Her tremendous loss
Inspired her to choose her life
Serving greater good

  1. Beautiful haiku. Sometimes a great loss is what it takes for us to realize the errors of our ways. It’s a sad reality.
