Haiku Prompt Challenge #48 – ‘Inspire and Loss’

….thank you Ronovan for this week’s words, inspire and loss

This week’s prompts immediately brought to mind Noah Galloway, an Iraq war veteran who was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Despite being a double amputee he persevered week after week and went all the way to the finals and placed third. The words ‘inspiration and loss’ came up every week after he performed.

Dancing With  the Stars

The loss of one arm

and dancing with one leg

Inspired us to vote


Bravely baring all

His spirit to dance inspires

His loss, matters not
