First of all I have heard from our friend Wyatt. He will be keeping in touch and I plan to continue to email him and be his friend. I will miss his wit and enthusiasm he brought to our community we’ve been growing here. Support him by purchasing one of his books. I’m not saying you have to, but if you have enough for a bottle of soft drink you can buy an Indie Author’s book. It takes a lot to put yourself out there to be judged on your talent.
T.A. Wyatt Remember to go purchase a book on Amazon by clicking here. Linger is only .99 and The Mill of Maisonneuve is 1.99.
New This Week
Prakash of Its PH: ” I used to work as an Assistant Professor at B. V. B. College of Engineering and Technology, Hubli, India-31. Currently Pursuing my PhD. at IIIT-Hyderabad. My research work has not only motivated me to do technical stuff but also all other reads and writes. Blogging has opened a new life to me!”~From his About page. Now for the Haiku. The Axeman Cometh! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Need I say more?
Wild Daffodil of well, um, Wild Daffodil: “Blogland is such a wonderfully positive community of creative people and enriches my creative life. Bright colours dancing together feed my soul. My Mum taught me to knit when I was 5 as I am left-handed and she wanted to teach me to knit right-handed so that I would be able to follow patterns easily. What a gift!! It set me on the road of making things that has been a joy and a delight all my life.”~From her about page. The Haiku: Trouble! For this lady I can see the topic of this Haiku being trouble indeed. Thank you to Melissa our Aran Artisan for leading this lady to us.
Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: “I am medically retired from my ‘career’, have been for about 5 years now. For quite some time I missed my old job a lot. I enjoyed it, I was good at it and didn’t have any desire to do anything else. But the Lord had other plans for me. Now He has called me to work for Him. He has graciously given me some talent to work with words. He has also seen fit to guide me with the Holy Spirit to study and comprehend His Word. Don’t misunderstand; I am no scholar nor a pastor. I’m just trying to be obedient to my Lord and Savior and do what He asks me, in a way that would please and bring glory to His holy Name.”~From his About page. Now the Haiku: Beast of a Day. Man after my own heart with that Bio, and as for his Haiku, he embodies my view of what poetry is to myself.
Sarah Brentyn of Lemon Shark: “Pre-Mum Days: I loved reading, writing, traveling, skydiving, target shooting, bartending, & watching re-runs of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’m all grown up and stuff with 2 kids and a lot of my inspiration comes from those two
knuckleheads angels. I love reading YA novels–the good, the bad, and the cheesy. I love food. And wine. And chocolate, the seventh wonder of the food pyramid.”~From her About page. The Haiku: Two of them, Parenting and Not a Morning Person. Both were TweetKu as I call them and I grabbed them and posted them on my blog as a guest poet post. @SarahBrentyn Make sure to visit Lemon Shark and follow her.
First to Enter this Week:
Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Another Day. Hehehehehe Okay, I have a feeling we might have a real theme going this week. I had no idea she was royalty but I should have known by the name. Duh, right? @TeandPaper
Khor Hui Min of Project Prose: Tsunami. I thought perhaps after my haiku and Elizabeth’s a theme might begin. Then with the very third Haiku I am reminded words can be many things. The photograph with this says so much. It and the Haiku gives us a life lesson. @MinKhor
Serins of Serins Sphere: Beauty and Beast. Fairytale inspired. @SerinsSphere
Faith Unlocked: With Great Power Comes… Nice. I look at this in a way a flip of my example. I thought perhaps he would get it. Not that this is an actual flip of it. I just want to take that credit. @FaithUnlocked
Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Black Beast. HA! Sue show up again. That poor woman. Sue is one of our resident Authors. Click here for her Amazon Author Page and all those books she’s written. @SCVincent
Meredith and Martha of Meredith’s Musings I don’t know if you’ve visited the Ladies but these two sisters have so become artists at Haiku. The messages this week and the word usage are excellent.. Beast/Day, Protect, Monster, Phantom. @Meredithlbl
Kimberly of K.S. Fause: Enchanted. Wow. Kimberly made the image this week and it reminds me of an old Grimms Fairy Tales book I had growing up with these images that were painted. Very much like this. @KSFause
Florence of Rambling On Blog: Chained. I didn’t need time to think this time. Normally I tend to let Florence’s words roll around inside the empty spaces of my mind until one clear definable title comes to me. Not this time. This is a MUST READ for a great many people out there. All those chained. @FTThum
Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams – Beast of Desire. OOOOO Nato! And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato
Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane – Test or Bliss?. A nice message and way to look at lost love. The mind is making up for missed moments. 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.
SW ysobel of Spunky Wayfarer. Little Beasties. Definitely go and visit. To read the Haiku to find out who the Little Beasties as well as to find out how the Spunky one develops each weeks entry. Awesome. Beast I Stab at Thee.
Geoff Le Pard of TanGental: Beast for a day. Three this week. The first time playing off the other with the final as a stand alone that is just too true to even be funny. Also I want to thank Geoff for doing something blogging does. Through his use of my prompts to do another prompt he connected two bloggers. The magic if Blog World. 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
Melissa of The Aran Artisan: Read. A spin on something that’s been done but how creative. I also like the way she ties in her various challenges. If you are not following Melissa’s blog you’re missing something. An American married to an Irishman she met in America and the two now back in Ireland. She show’s her life in Ireland and the photography and the things you learn are great. @thearanartisan
Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Wishful Thinking. Okay, okay. I took the title from something she said in the comments when she put the link in the challenge. I personally, being allergic to the sun and heat would much prefer to call this Evil Thoughts. But I won’t.
Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: The Beast. Hehehee, Okay, I had a couple of ideas from this. No way is that a beast. Then I was like, perhaps it was thinking that upon which it was is the beast.
Vashti of Vashti Quiroz-Vega’s Blog: Henry Philip “Hank” McCoy. If you don’t know the name, go check it out. Pair it with one of the prompt words, and it’ll make your day. Go buy The Basement on Amazon now!
Hugh of Hugh’s Views & News: Razor Triumphant. Um. Well, you just have to go see. Hugh left it to me to name on purpose and well. I kind of got a Mercurial moment as I looked at the Haiku. @RobertHughes05
Marigold of Versus Blurb – Taken. A Beauty and the Beast Haiku, but with a good take on it. My title for it means something not quite what you think. 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
Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous Word: Animal Instincts. She worried about rushing because of the time but that second one of her two was a good one. I could take a twist on that and give a different something entirely but I won’t go there today. Like that one a lot.
Melissa M of This, Right Now: In the Moment. ooooo, now that could be good or bad. I have no idea. Some might say a beast but some might enjoy it. Some might look at it as a vacation.
Sueju Takeshi of Takeshi’s Flight: The Day. A very good one, and appropriate on coming on a Sunday. Very much in line with my example. When I chose the words I didn’t have an idea in mind for a Haiku or a theme of any kind. But it did lend itself well to this particular subject.
My Haiku this week was: The Beast or the Bean.
Click here for Week 35 Challenge.
And the closing Haiku:
This beast of a change
Seems to me a nuisance grrr,
Good the day’s shorter.
See y’all later,
