Ronovan Writes Monday HaiKu Challenge: Wail and Wake

Hello all you readers and writers. I’m joining the Weekly HaiKu Challenge on Mondays led by Ronovan Writes. Go HERE for the instructions and how to particpate. This week’s Prompt words are Wail and Wake.Here I my entry for this week.

The Keening Cry

Ahab sailed from port

No one considered his wife

Least of those himself.

With crazed ambition

Did the whaler hunt his prey

Lost more than his leg

The widow cried out

Night vigil for her husband

Ancient Tradition.
