My 1000th Post and what better post could it be than the Haiku Review!!!
New This Week
Khor Hui Min of Project Prose: “Thank you for dropping by. This blog was created as a project for exploring the environment and the world through writing and sharing prose, photos and art. I hope you enjoyed your visit, and please do come again. “ The Haiku. Canvas of Tyrants. That’s my name for it. go check and see why. @MinKhor
Lady Lee Manila of Lady Lee Manila A Girl in Fringe, Pretty in Red : “Ladyleemanila, a girl in fringe, pretty in red Her brains swirl like that crazy cappucino smile”!From the About Page. Now the Haiku. Revolution This is my look it up Haiku this week. Learned some history and so loved it.
Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous Word: I chose this from her About page-“If words have so much power to change the world, then writers should make sure it is a positive change. Let’s keep our words generous and abundant in giving, forgiving, inspiring and sharing. And that’s what I will try to do through my blog – by using words that convey truth, humour, sadness, romance, inspiration and much more.” I thought those words said so much. Now for the Haiku. There are actually 5 of them. So I will simply keep to War and Fame. Go read for the details along with explanations.
@girally She’s just starting her Twitter up again, so please go and follow her.
First to Enter Thunder Dome this Week:
T.A. Wyatt of Finale to an Entrance: War: An Internal Struggle. A good story in a few words. If we all don’t experience this I would be surprised. Remember to go purchase a book on Amazon by clicking here. Linger is only .99 and The Mill of Maisonneuve is 1.99. @FinaletoEntranc
Faith Unlocked: War: What Is It Good For?. Okay, did anyone else start singing like Jackie Chan from Rush Hour when they saw that title? Okay, okay, okay, I’ll be good. This could be identifying a country I have heard of, or any country actually. @FaithUnlocked
Meredith and Martha of Meredith’s Musings Hee hee hee, Meredith said Phooey last week. I’m still laughing so I had to include it again.. Gotta love it. War of Wits, Combat, Fame, and War. The ladies are really getting in to Haiku. ! @Meredithlbl
Serins of Serins Sphere: War and Fame. Something of history. @SerinsSphere
Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams – Going to War. Two Haiku this week and they both have very good messages. And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato
SW ysobel of Spunky Wayfarer. Far Out Fame seriously. It’s out of this world. Need. At first I couldn’t think of a title. Then I sat and thought a while and read it through slowly. Finally it came to me.
Geoff Le Pard of TanGental: Haiku to you, too. So really there are two here. Dude is too smart. Seriously. 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
Buffy of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Lines of Infamy. Two Haiku with one title I came up with. It’s nice to know the words I am choosing lately are making people think. I don’t always like to throw out easy ones to do. We do have to stretch our minds and creativity at times. @BWseekingBL
Melissa of The Aran Artisan: Food Wars. Well, I have to say that I am very pleased this worked out. Love the story of how this came together. Who knew a family life would lead to overcoming writer’s block? Loved it. @thearanartisan
Canaf of Faithful Devotionals – Fame. Makes you think. Always a good thing. Still thinking. Makes sense too.
Marigold of Versus Blurb – Deep Malignancy. I can’t even talk about it. Just go and look and read everything with it. 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
Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: The Wars of the Roses. She doth return! Awesome, she comes with History in her quill. Doth the feather tickle? Hath I gone mad?
Wendy Anne Darling of Silver Lightning: Bound. Poor authors. So fearful of things and that holds them back. Did you know you can get Wendy’s book Silver Lightning at Amazon? You did? Then BUY IT!
Melissa M of This, Right Now: Ruin Porn. At first, with Melissa’s wit, I was expecting something else. Then I got a lesson. This week really brought out a lot of History from people. It’s just amazing.
Colleen of Silver Threading: Anne. More history this week. I suppose war does bring that out. This time there is something very poignant about it. Fame and war do go hand in hand. We would rather that fame never occur. Some fames we truly could have done without but we learned so much. Still wished it never had happened. @ColleenChesebro Mira of They, You And Me: Two this week in one. The first I will call Love is Fame. The second, Never Healing . @BediMona Really everyone did great serious this week. But I had to pick one. But if everyone wants to take the serious image, go for it. I so loved this week. It was a great week of Haiku. Meredith got it this week hands-paws-something down.. War of Wits, Combatr. I really appreciate Meredith every week more than I could ever say. Oh for me to be a few years older, or maybe just a few miles closer. @Meredithlbl No Haiku from me this week.
And the closing Haiku:
When the war over,
The tragedy is revealed,
That fame is fleeting.
See y’all later, @RonovanWrites
