On my way home

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge Image 2016

Afternoon drive home,

Golden rays slant long shadows,

Cool breeze, mellow song,

Sweet moment of alchemy

heralds summer’s destiny.

As the title suggests, I have tried to capture a moment that I experienced on the way home yesterday afternoon.  Besides the ingredients mentioned in the tanka poem, the prompt words for Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #114 were hanging out at the back of my mind.  This week I have used synonyms, an option in this challenge that has opened my awareness of the multiple meanings of words.  I used ‘alchemy’ for the prompt ‘magic’ and ‘destiny’ for the prompt ‘stars’.
