Default CSL x 17: contest #16 Honorary Haikus

With this weeks' installation of the C.S. Lewis memorial stone in the Poets' Corner of Westminster Abbey -- for one week only November 18-25 -- let us celebrate by posting Haikus to Honor his work and life.

In 3 lines, 17 syllables (5+7+5), capture a scene or image or character or feeling that you love in the Chronicles. Or simply write a tribute to Lewis in haiku... then post it here before 11/25...

Shivering, a faun
juggles parcels, umbrella
in the hopeless snow

Good, now we have "Narnia" AND "Lewis himself" haiku represented. I'll try priming the pump a little more:



Marshwiggle's foot burns
Briefly; but he will recall
The success thus gained.

I'm going to try my hand, though I never wrote a haiku before so here goes.

Once a king or queen,
always a king or queen by
Aslan's 'mazing grace.

That goes for me too.


Hope is a promise
when I hold His golden words
"I call all times soon".

I wasn't sure so I tried writing two.

The land between worlds
is quiet and filled with pools
to gone and yet worlds.

Quite welcome sir! I hope to post more, though it has been ages since I've written haikus haha!

But I quite agree, BarbarianKing did as excellent job and of course you did as well Copperfox!

Here's another:

Made out of silver
A prison yet it shows truth
Prince Rilian's bane.

Edit: Great job to you as well Elsesta! I enjoyed yours a great deal.
