The Height of Haiku Challenge, Day 3 - Windmill

Welcome to Day 3 of The Height of Haiku Challenge, where your challenge is to write 30 haiku in 30 days, with the themes given here. The prompt today and #61 overall is WINDMILL, given by Nanka.

Here's mine:


Round and round she sails
Fighting with Don Quixote
At the Moulin Rouge


  1. Thanks for the prompt Nanka, I'll be back later to read everyone's work.


  2. This is an amusing piece! I saw in person (once) that windmill at the Moulin Rouge. I can just imagine Don Quixote getting tangled up in it!

    No Windmill Here!

  3. Beautiful!! Your run away mind took you to the Moulin Rouge windmill, of which I saw a picture and Don Quixote the romantic hero on a whirlwind adventure!!
    I got images of swords swishing round and round :)

  4. A great haiku.
    Cleverly done.

  5. Fun haiku, Andy! Don Quixote definitely would have had at that windmill, had he ever seen it. Assuming, of course, he didn't get distracted by all the dancers and think they were damsels in need of rescuing... ;)

  6. Andy I actually started mine on Don Quixote but then changed my mind, glad I did you did a much better job then I could have!

  7. Really clever and creative execution, Andy :) Liked it.
