First to Enter Thunder Dome this Week:
T.A. Wyatt of Finale to an Entrance: Prisoner. This one says a lot. I think everyone should read it and take a moment to sit and reflect. T.A. really delivered a message here that I envy. We were also given another poem titled Wrapped in Chains that is Haiku in a different sense. Another great message, with this one being about conformity in creativity. Remember to go purchase a book on Amazon by clicking here. Linger is only .99 and The Mill of Maisonneuve is 1.99. @FinaletoEntranc
Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Rare. This is one of those you can sit and think about a while. Sue is one of our resident Authors. Click here for her Amazon Author Page and all those books she’s written. @SCVincent
Kimberly of K.S. Fause: I had been worrying about Kimberly and am glad she has returned to us. Winter’s Spite. Love the inspiration aspect, as always. How appropriate a Haiku in so many ways. @KSFause
Patty of Strawberries Forever: Is that a great name for a blog or what? You all know Patty from I Am Not Sick Boy blog. Wow, this one is full of color and I just love it. It’s Me! is the name of her Haiku this week. Love the photo and you will too! It’s Here and Then It’s Gone is her second entry this week. Very cool image and concept for the Haiku.
Serins of Serins Sphere: Thirst. At first reading you don’t see two sentences but then take your time and read line two and three together again, and just think about it. @SerinsSphere
Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams – Growing Cold. Such a well put together Haiku that just works. I don’t know what else to say. You need to read it. I’m serious about that. It’s a lesson for some. And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato
Raquel of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Hidden Truth. I wonder sometimes how birds of a feather truly do flock together. There are so many people you meet in this world who experience the same things. @BWseekingBL
Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane – Valency. Okay this so well thought out. I’m not certain how much time was put in to this one but even though the words chosen are different than what they represent you get it instantly. A very well done message. As always, Steven brings something different to the challenge. I greatly enjoy reading what he has to offer each week. I know it will be something that makes you go ‘whoa’. Simplicity Lane is free, go here for where you can get it. Through a Stranger’s Eyes here and Résumé for Love for free here.
Meredith and Martha of Meredith’s Musings Hee hee hee, Meredith said Phooey. Gotta love it. Pressure, Broken Trust, Cardinal, and Forbidden. Meredith is truly a bright, shining, and rare thing. You guys so need to see the image in the Cardinal. I had NO idea. Awesome! @Meredithlbl
Geoff Le Pard of TanGental: The Aspiring Novelist. A six line piece that, I believe, shows some of Geoff’s writing chops here. And the word selection and rhythm are very nice, just as if you were reading the passage of a book. Also I find this one humorous i the honesty of it. And we have another author to add to our family. Go to Amazon to get Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle. I don’t know who Sherry is but I mean what’s she doing with the dead flies? But yeah, click here for Amazon UK and here for the US. @geofflepard
Marigold of Versus Blurb – Remember Those Without. I very eye-opening message. I think the explanation is even more powerful than the Haiku itself. Or perhaps they are equally powerful. Go and purchase
Marigold Deidre Dicer’s book The Black Swan Inheritance from Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes and Noble or the iBooks store or purchase it from Amazon on Kindleby clicking here. @MarigoldDicer
Melissa of The Aran Artisan: Bad Girl okay so she called it Blue. But I had to have a little fun, right? Well, I had to say it. I mean she knows and still does it so bad, bad. How often does she get called that? probably NEVER in her life. @thearanartisan (Wonder why I didn’t color the title of her Haiku blue? Hmm.)
Florence of Rambling On Blog: Patience. Although the word does not appear in the Haiku, after thinking about it and reading it several times this is the word that came to mind. Yes, I read the Haiku each person submits several times until I get a meaning for me out of it. @FTThum I Highly recommend you read this review and commentary on the movie and society storm of 50 Shades of Grey. It’s not like what you’ve been reading and not a bore. 50 Shades – Storm in a Teacup a Woman’s Thoughts by @FTThum This is on my LitWorldInterviews Site.
Melissa M of This, Right Now: Blue Skies. Someone’s tired of winter.
Canaf of Faithful Devotionals – Such Love. Sad message, but true. I so love the image with this and how it was put together. It adds a different element to the Haiku.
A mind-breakingly difficult decision this week. Yes, I know breakingly is not a word but I ain’t gonna change it now. ‘Nuff said bout dat. I hate to do it and I said I would never do it again but it’s a tie this week.
Marigold of Versus Blurb: Remember Those Without. A message delivered. The message here and the idea Marigold thought this to put it into words is what got me as well as the Haiku itself. @MarigoldDicer
Geoff Le Pard of TanGental: The Aspiring Novelist. I enjoy this piece for the honesty of it and in honesty is when you most often find humor. It’s a must read for any writer/author/hack/wordsmith. @geofflepard
I had Two Haiku this week, although I planned only one. Your Rewards and Harsh Pleasure. I think I have lost my Haiku Mojo for the time being as the enjoyment factor from the masses doesn’t seem to be there. I will have to do something about that.
And the closing Haiku:
Rare is your caring.
When you see me suffering,
Give me a taco.
See y’all later,
