Inspired by the theme at
Day Eight is on ... another day to write haiku on a given prompt ... today the prompt is RENDER. I have never heard of this word so I have to search the Internet for meaning and synonyms. On Thesaurus.com I found the next meaning of render, contribute and the following synonyms which I (hopefully) can use for today's haiku, give, deliver, give voice to, show, prove (or evidence), give back, reciprocate, interpret, impersonate, witness, surrender, devote, reproduce and abandon. A lot of synonyms ... can I write with these the haiku for today? Well ... I think so. Let's give it try.
in front of Mother Mary's statue
strong love for all living creatures
giving voice to
giving voice to
and reciprocate Her Child
I would like to say GIVE LOVE
I had some difficulties with this prompt and tried to write a cascade originating from devote (one of the synonyms I had found for render).
See you all tomorrow again for another September Heights day ... GLOSS is than our prompt to 'struggle' with (smiles).
If you had trouble it doesn't show. Good! good! good!
This cascading haiku is lovely. All beautifully said about devotion.
I love how the cascade circles back to the beginning . Well done!
I think that you did a great job with this prompt, as I don't feel that render is an easy word to write a haiku. The last two lines of your haiku really brought everything you stated so nicely. :)
wonderful set of haiku devoted to Our Lady ~ (A Creative Harbor)
visuals and message are 'rendered' beautifully....
Your haiku is a beautiful example of rendering service to humanity. Just beautiful!
No trouble understanding your beautiful haiku. A devoted rendering indeed
A fine cascading adoration
Lovely. I'll meditate more on it when I have more time, but I love the tender feeling of devotion.
A devotee's cry...
Could hear the devotee's cry...
Lovely song of devotion!
A devoting cascading haiku...brilliantly done...
many thanks for the encouraging words on my haiku...
The only 'render' I know is "render a song..." you know the one in church, so my thoughts are not far from the words you used in your haiku today. I like the last one very much.
I agree with the others that you did perfectly with the word. For me, too, this has been the hardest prompt so far in this challenge, because: 1. it is a verb, and 2. it has so many meanings, part of them really vague :-)
Your cascade is great, Kristjaan!
The last stanza says it all for me. Give love to others instead of knealing before a statue :)
A haiku immersed in devotion. Nothing can be more soothing
Who could go wrong with the Blessed Mother? -- very nice!!
September Heights - Render
Rendering devotion is always a good thing, I'd say!
I like the first one best :) It has a voice of its own..
