Carpe Diem: Daily Haiku 54


Spirits set ablaze
By the taiko’s roaring beats
Brave soldiers march forth.

Warrior’s battle cry
From the village, faintly heard
Drumbeats escalate.

In the battlefield
Above thunderous pounding
Sound of steel clashing.

Sensual drumbeats
Sultry goddess stomps her feet
Curves undulating.

Today’s prompt: Taiko

  1. Awesome drum beats. I enjoyed the middle’s escalating intensity. I can hear the drum beats and feel the fear of the distant war machine approaching.
