The Roaring Forty Words

A list poem for Napowrimo Day 5     

roaring haiga

Roaring is good – releasing tension
Roaring is bad – showing anger
Roaring is communication – between lions
Roaring is oceanic – waves against rocks
Roaring is messianic – saving lives 
Roaring is thunderous – the voice of lightning
Roaring is loud.

I really didn’t like this prompt, so this  follows on from the last word of my yesterday’s bucket list poem.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one not liking this prompt, but you’ve done really well despite this, a lovely refreshing list. 🙂

    Some prompts just don’t fit with us Viv. But the challenge is trying to work with them and you did just that. X

    Good job for one you didn’t like!
    I would have said it was an uncooked slice of onion.
