#12MOW: A challenge from the Urban Spaceman

An old blogging acquaintance has come back from a long hiatus (we both used to write to Chuck Wendig's prompts), and has issued a new writing challenge. For himself, and for anyone who wants to ride/write along. It involves writing something each Friday to a single month-long prompt, but in in different genres, starting with haiku and extending to flash fiction. Read all about it on the Urban Spaceman's blog.

I can't really keep up, most likely. But this week's challenge is haiku, and I figured I could manage 17 syllables.

The theme: WEALTH

Long way from my home,
Free to wander the whole world.
What could be richer?

  1. Lovely, and very appropriate to your current status! A very enjoyable arrangement of 17 syllables :) I Hope your sojourning is going well!

    1. We are having a great trip! I might almost even have time here and there for a blog post... but the internet connections are usually tenuous, at best, so I’m not trying.
