Weekly Poetry Challenge: Vigor and Energy

This was created by blogger Colleen Chesebro. For guidelines, click here. This week’s words are “vigor” and “energy.” and I created a haiku using only synonyms, which wasn’t hard, given that these two words have the same meaning. See what you think.

crows caw with vitality
start the day with vim

  1. Excellent Haiku, Abby. The crow is my spirit animal. I have a mother hanging around with her babies. I’ve gotten great writing inspiration from that crow. 😀 ❤
