RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #36 Field&Beacon


Challenge 36

Welcome to another Haikuventure.

I’ve been seeing some mention of not knowing the structure of Haiku. If you are such a person, please scroll down the post until you see the section that I have given the color red this week. It has not been that color in the past, but the section has been there none the less. In that section is a link to an article titled How to write a Haiku Poem. Oh, what they hey, here is the link here.

Now on with the normal show and festivities.

Welcome everyone to the Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge. You may have found your way here through The Daily Post pages, the Reader, Twitter, Google+, or however you found us, we’re glad you came. I’m not just saying that. After you have been with us for a time you will realize we aren’t just a place to share a three line poem. We are a community of friends here. If you are reading this part, include the word peace anywhere in your post, it doesn’t even need to be in the poem and I will reblog your Haiku here on my blog. Just wanting to see who is reading. That doesn’t mean you have to talk to us. Just visit the various Haiku and click Like if you actually like something.

I created this challenge to have a place for people to share and gain a little exposure to other readers they might not have otherwise. We all have different people who visit our blogs.

Provide your Twitter Handle if you have one. I usually can get it from sharing your Haiku through your Twitter sharing button. If you have a Twitter and don’t  have it linked to your account don’t worry you can still have the share option work with the handle. 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. Also it is helpful if you have Google+ to follow me there by clicking here so I can include you on the Weekly Review when I post it there.

 Field & Beacon

Another week where you can guess where the words came from if you wish to. I know. Lucky me, right?

My Example

A Beacon like nose ,

Radiated from the sun,

Your face field did peel.

A beacon like nose radiated from the sun.

Radiated from the sun, your face field did peel.

So you’ve written the  Haiku and you’ve created the post. Now what?

  1. You can put a the link of this post in your post and it should, I say should, do a ping back to this post and I and others should see it.
  2. I recommend as well for you to copy the link of your post once it has been published in the comments of this post. That’s a guarantee for it to be seen and I will be certain to include it in the Weekly Review.
  3. Visit other people’s Haiku.
  4. The deadline is Sunday by Noon EST. That’s New York City time.
  5. Shortly after Noon EST the Weekly Review with the names of each blogger, their site names, the name of their Haiku and a link to that Haiku will be published, along with my thoughts, and the Twitter Handle of each person.
  6. The Weekly Review is then Tweeted. The ‘Choices’ are tweeted with the first Tweet. I then continue to tweet the post until every person’s twitter handle has been mentioned.
  7. I also Post the Weekly Review on Google+ with the Twitter Handles and if I am your friend on Google+ I include you there as well.

What’s a Ping Back?

A ping back is when you place the URL from the address bar of this post 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 for WordPress. 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. Click here to find out how.

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.

 DEADLINE: Noon on Sunday New York Time.


There are TWO “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.

    • This one is a must read, everyone. Makes you think. Opposites, well written two sentence structure. Revealing although doesn’t reveal which is what a Haiku is supposed to do. I honestly am really loving this Haiku.
      Claudette, Thank you so much for writing this one.
      Much Respect

  1. Ronovan, I enjoy reading everyone’s weekly Haiku. It is time consuming and I can only imagine the amount of work, time, care you volunteer into this challenge. I could probably shave a few minutes off my time if I would remember to right click and open in another tab, but anyhoo, I won’t take anymore of your precious time. Just wanted to say thanks and appreciate all your efforts and your entire blog. Melissa

  2. Just in my Reader and saw a Haiku post from 17 hrs ago, didn’t catch it here. So back I came. See it in a pingback, not a comment. Actually there were four in all I never saw. So I should click to read from the pingback not the comment, yes? We don’t even have to leave a comment with our link? Sorry, all still a bit new to me. And I did reread your above instructions re:pingback but just trying to get clear in my untechy mind…

  3. Okay, I’m going to go ahead and share this, embarrassing as it may be: All week, every time I read one of the comments or submissions on this challenge I misread it as “field & bacon” – I know, I’m weird! LOL
