Saving the World, One Haiku at a Time

[Thoughtful Thursday Prompt]


If World's Queen Were I

If World’s Queen were I
Nature’s Reign would never die
On Her I’d rely

For today’s prompt…

Queens* of the World, tell us in a rhyming haiku what cause you are most passionate about.

The 5/7/5 syllable count must be adhered to.

Special consideration for those submissions accompanied by an original relevant photograph or artwork. Copyright responsibilities are assumed by the contributor.

And if I may have a quick word with my male friends…

Dudes, I hope your lack of participation in last Thursday’s prompt had nothing to do with the fact you must assume responsibilities as Queens of the World. I mean, come on… We forced our non-gender specific maleness down everyone’s throat, so to speak, in our literature since the beginning of the written word so it’s time for you to man* up and get over it already and let us know how you would make the world a better place if you lorded* over it as a Queen*.

Roger that?
Roger that.

*non-gender specific

This may explain things a bit.
Submissions close at 7pmish.
Selection announced sometime thereafter.
No comments other than submissions please.
Please “Like” those you like.

It should be noted that, as stated in the Disclaimer page and the Relating to Humans guidelines, a “Like” by me does not necessarily mean I like or endorse a submitted work. My “Like” is foremost intended as a means of acknowledging a submission; though chances are pretty good I may like it, as well.
