Week #40 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words New & Time

Be aware all links and images if clicked will open in a new window. Links are in blue and usually underlined. I believe they look cleaner and nicer this way rather than having a URL showing on the page.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

rose-KRose of Bohemian Nerd: “I’m a practicing bibliophile who seeks refuge among dusty paper magic and the Dewey Decimal System. I’m an inspiration pack-rat always looking for my next “information high.” I lust for linguistics and daydream about the likes of Susan Sontag, Philip K. Dick, Neil Young and Aerosmith.”~From the About page. The Haiku: Teacher or Student. Hmm, interesting, interesting. Could be read as one whole sentence or two. Hmm. As fro the photo here. I had a few to pick from but this one was just awesome.

cjSo many names to use. Miss O-CD, Geeker, Noisy Dancer. Maybe she’ll tell us what to use. But her blog is Dancing Echoes: Beats Stumbling Around in Silence. “I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Picture straightener.”~Her About Page, Her Twitter. Possible tattoo on her foot says O-CD Rules, it does, I say it DOES!  Yes, I’ve been at this for hours now and I think I am a little slap happy. On to the Haiku: Empty Nest. Mix of the use of life and nature. Cool. Liked it.  


First to Enter this Week:

edwinaEdwina of Edwina’s Episodes: A New Spring Outfit. Staying with nature. And staying with her theme of, well her theme of entertainment. I’ll put it that way.


Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Hangover…  Yeah, it’s about someone else. Mhmm.

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs:  Your Beauty. Very much seems to have played off of my image Haiku. Liked it. Then she gave us another from her They, You And Me blog, Forget Me Not@BediMona

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Emotion. You have to go see. It’s never just a Haiku when you visit Sandra. Photography, now with Friends and a story to go along with it. I enjoy those. You get a piece of life along with a pinch of it you get from a Haiku. I love having her in the Haiku Family. Yes, I as going to say Haikumily.

Meredith & Martha of Meredith’s Musings Antiques and Son from Meredith then Golf and Friends from Martha. Good ones again. I liked Meredith’s Antiques. And we see where Martha’s passion lies.  @Meredithlbl

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  Beauty Queen and Standing Still. We have two. One a commentary I do believe and the other a thinky piece. She has two minds I think. And who does not love her Twitter Handle? I mean, seriously.

Sacha Black of Sacha Black: New Bum. Um, I’m not sure if this is a self help tip or what. If anyone tries it, let me know if it works.

SW ysobel of Spunky WayfarerWho? Yes? What? No, Who.. Who is right but you have to go and read to find out what I am talking about. Well, we were told there might be a second one. A Vegas Love Story. Ha. And so many did not go and read this one. I am ashamed. Tsk Tsk. @SpunkyWayfarer

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Spring powerCan you tell what part of the world some people are in by what they right? @TeandPaper

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Before It’s Too Late. I like this one a lot. MUST READ. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.  

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Springtime. Greg gone Nature. I think he and Elizabeth were on the same page.  @greg_wolford 

clickerwriter of Captured by Aishwarya: Cure for the pain. Do you agree? Do you not agree? Go find out what you are agreeing to or not agreeing to.

Felicity of The Dark Night Chronicles: Brutalized Blossoms. She went high tech this week. She put her Haiku on an image. From the likes, people like it. Felicity is also one of our Authors. You can get her book Erotic Passages at Amazon by clicking here.

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  You got to move it, move it. Image and Haiku go perfectly together. The one makes the other work and makes you want to well, move it move it. @MinKhor

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams –  Longing for Love. Tsk tsk tsk. You keep looking in the wrong places. Do I have o draw a map? Geesh. 😛 And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato

Daleen of My Grandfather was an Undertaker: Clock Face. Hmm. Giving a somewhat inanimate object human characteristics. Interesting. Nice.

Serins of Serins Sphere: Has Been. Sometimes you get a message that may not be the message but that’s what I got. Maybe I’m past my prime and need to be silent. @SerinsSphere

Geoff Le Pard of TanGentalTimes and Tides. Two this week. I definitely like the first which he has called untitled. Great imagery with that one. 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

Rajani Radhakrishnan of THOTPURGE: Time & Again.  oooo, very nice ones. Awesome. Must Reads.

As a side note, are banana flavored popsicles not like so awesome?

Alyssa of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Heart & Soul. Three this week from the mystery lady. Yes, mush for certain this week. But we have some mushy parts to us at times. No comments from anyone, please. She was concerned her third Haiku did not use the word new, however I think she missed the fact the use of the last four words in the third line infer something new is about to happen. So she got it. Those of you who have not been visiting need to start. Each week has a post of its own and her Haiku have come a long way from where she was. Hmm. I think that speaks to a lot of things about her perhaps. @BWseekingBL

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: New Life Replaces Old and New Life Surrenders. Two Haiku both with different environments and meanings. I liked them a lot. As always perfect images to go with them.

Colleen of Silver Threading: Poof, You’re a Fairy. Does the title have anything to do with the Haiku? Maybe. Perhaps. A little? A word maybe? You have to go see to know for certain. @ColleenChesebro  Also remember to drop by the LWI site and read Colleen’s Book Reviews. She is excellent. Click here to see everything she’s written.

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: Seconds Pass. A serious one from our often times humorous friend. Anyone else been concerned about our missing maestro of merriment?  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.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Glory. Always has me thinking with these. Okay, as I am thinking I think I thought thoughts that were not thought of as this was being thought out.

Marigold of Versus Blurb: It’s Raining Men. That has nothing to do with her Haiku, but the little image at the top instantly brought that to mind. No idea why. But who knows what was going through her mind to make her so sun shiny at the time? Go 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 Kindle by clicking here. @MarigoldDicer 

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Coffee Time. I based that title on her first Haiku. Read it, think about it, and you’ll get it. Maybe I’m wrong, but maybe I’m right. Also it was her birthday when she posted so go wish her a belated birthday. @FTThum

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Let Me Go. At first when I saw the title I thought she meant she wanted me to stop the fan mail I send each day. Then I read it and I think it still might mean that. Either that or it’s a new theme song for a Disney movie coming up. You decide.. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Here One Day, Gone the Next Very good with the nature, use of time very well done. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site,  

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: All Things New. Good message. Not surprised there. Peace.

Melissa M of This, right now: Start Anew. Awesome. So many of us need to follow this, and read it every day. A Print It and Pin It for the Week.

Prakash of It’s PH:   Time Keeps on Slippin’ Slippin, Into the Future. Yes, that’s the words to an oooold song, but fits the Haiku. Go check it. @itsPhTweet

Melissa of The Aran ArtisanBlackberry Bliss . Ha. Sweet Haiku, the Ha is for the photo. Yeah, that’s Bliss for certain. @thearanartisan

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordAll Powerful Time. Three from Alka this week. Reflective Haiku this week. Enjoyed the middle one a lot. @girally

Evolving Ruminations: New Moon.  A science lesson as well as a Haiku. Gotta love it.

laughter-lines-sue-vincentSue Vincent from Daily Echo: Tides. Okay, the first line, the first word. Is she like trying to show us up or something? Sue is one of our resident authors with a LOT of books on Amazon. Click here to check them out. @SCVincent  But Check out her NEW BOOK by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.



E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Here One Day, Gone the Next Very good with the nature, use of time very well done. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site,

Meredith of Meredith’s Musings Antiques She doesn’t need any help or saving. I think she’s perfect as is.  @Meredithlbl

When it comes to lover’s arms,

Time will tell the truth.

  1. Thanks for the review. 🙂 Always love as many Haiku’s as I can get to. Just between you and me, I’m also considered past my prime. 😦


  2. Ronovan, what a sweet man you are!!! You came to mind today as I found myself singing “It’s all about the bass, ’bout that bass, no treble”! I am enjoying being part of the Haiku family more than I ever thought. It makes it really special that you read and comment on each amazing Haiku. I’m hooked! ❤


  3. Oh Ronovan, I think your thoughts may have been thinking things they thought right, or perchance your thoughts were thinking of some other thoughts. Either way I think my thoughts have it covered, because they are thoughts that anyone may think! 🙂
