RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #33 Fame&War


Challenge Number



Sunday inspired the words this week, again. I was attempting to write my Sunday Thought late Saturday evening into early Sunday morning and nothing was coming. Rather than force it, I shut everything down and waited. When I woke up the next morning, well actually the same morning, the thought was there. Patience. I had waited rather than force it.

One quick thing. I have noticed in my social network travels that we aren’t following each other on Twitter. I follow everyone I have  a Twitter Handle for. Every one, follow our Haiku friends. You have a Twitter but I don’t have it? Just type it in the comments when you paste your link. One way I find Twitter Handles is when I click on your Haiku, I click the Twitter share button and get the handle from there. Your handle doesn’t show there? Click here to find out how to have it show up there. You know. I have a how-to article for just about everything. If not? Ask and I’ll write one.

 Fame & War

I foolishly pick words at times and then I promise myself not to back out of them. Let’s see what I come up with this time, and I hope everyone has an easier time this week. This week I am going to attempt to stay to a truer sense of the opposites of the two sentences formed.

My Example

War does win glory,

For heroes of history,

Fame can be fleeting.

What has been done here is the following.

War does win glory, for heroes of history.

For heroes of history, fame can be fleeting.

You have two opposite meanings for the sentences with the middle line of the Haiku “for heroes of history” as the common phrase used.

Have you never ventured into our haiventure? “Hiaku, adventure? Haiventure? Yeah, I make up words. Just not for the purpose of the Haiku. Hmm, although that gives me an idea for next weeks Haiku Challenge. One thing I want to explain is about pingbacks.

A ping back is when you place the URL from the address bar of this page into the post you write your Haiku on. You also have to make certain the link is actually in there by clicking on the add link button which is next to the right alignment button. To me the add link button kind of looks like a paper clip. It’s the fifth from the right in the WordPress post editor. Read below for  a couple or few more things that will help.

Then simply put a link to your Haiku in the comments of this Post and I’ll go look, as will others. The link is the URL. You can also do a PingBack. That’s when you put the URL of this post in your post. Don’t know how to do a Pingback. Click here to find out how.


The Deadline is Sunday by Noon, EST, or New York Time to people like me that just have no clue about time zones.

Haiku is simple and simply addictive. So be warned now. Once you start it’s difficult to stop. Here are two things to know:

  1. Haiku can be broken into two sentences with the middle line of the three lines being the commonly used part, meaning 1&2 and 2&3 making sentences. That’s Haiku.
  2. Opposite meanings in the first and last sentences. That’s Haiku.

For a full refresher or How to write Haiku in English click here. But you can use whatever Haiku style you want to. As long as you, do a Haiku.

For Tips and Guidelines refreshers click here.

If you have a Twitter and your handle has not appeared in a ReCap of a previous challenge, please let me know what it is so when I Tweet the ReCap on Sundays I may include it.


 DEADLINE: Noon on Sunday New York Time.

(I hate doing deadlines, but it takes quite a while to complete the ReCap.)

There are TWO “A RONOVAN’S CHOICE!” recipients each week. One for Humor and one for something more Serious. The Haiku are quite good each week and I am having to turn to the structure guidelines of a Haiku at times to help determine my selection.

Really each Haiku is a choice of mine, and I’m not just saying that, so I feel a bit odd even having something called A RONOVAN’S CHOICE, but hey, it’s a thing, right? And it does make it kind of fun.

  1. To all the people on this site that have been supportive of my work, I would like to say thank you. Here I found a place that fostered creativity and acceptance. I will not go into details here, but you can find out why I am leaving the blogosphere on my homepage. Once again, thank you to all, especially Mr. Ronovan, and good luck to you all in all your future ventures.
