Weekly Haiku Challenge : #216

Thanks Ronovan!

The Challenge Words!


He was my hero,
At least always in my eyes,
I was the coward.

Afraid of the dark,
I’d tremble in the shadows,
He would bring the light.

Always my hero,
My knight in shining armour,
How I miss you Dad.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
