For those of you wondering, the character in the center is my creation for the word Lovers. The previous weeks was a Chinese character that meant love or could be lovers, but I chose not to reuse, and created my own instead. No, not a bunny ears thing, that’s a pair of lovers with their heads on the shoulder of the other and forming a heart of sorts. You can figure out the rest for yourself.
Missing a lot of our Haiku Family this week. Don’t you love this time of year? Sarcasm much?
Week #44 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Charge & Lovers
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
Mari T. of Overcoming Static: “trying all things fiction to overcome the static of life. being a haiku fiend at this time.”~From the About Page. The Haiku: The Full Moon. Nice. Thinking here. Not one that should require me to think a lot. Straight forward but there is something about it that makes the mind wander around it a little bit. I like it.
First to Enter this Week:
Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Love For Hire. A bit telling if you think about it. Shame shame shame. The thoughts to come to ones mind when given words. I was thinking of a spark between lovers when I came up with charge. But I have to say, it is fun seeing what people come up with.
Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Coming in only 7 minutes after Edwina, man, this must have been an easy pair of words. Lovers. OOOO, she always comes up with some good ones. Queen Bee is Mira’s other blog submission this week. Submission? I just read Ritu’s Haiku and I think she’s influenced my thinking here. This one is kind of sad really. Never thought about it this way before. @BediMona
Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: One. Okay, I think she got thinky on me here. Hmm, but thinking as I do, I shall not give my definition of umm, things stated. 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.
TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Why Charge Lovers?. A good question, with a good reason behind it and of course does give an answer, but one even he doesn’t really like. GRRRR, business!
ladyleemanilla: Three this week. Ahhh, Young “Love”.. Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with a title for these Haiku, but I enjoy it. Three this week and in a way they are all connected.
Meredith of Meredith’s Musings: Nature and Rescue. I’m thinking the second Haiku is in response to her having ventured too close in the first Haiku. 🙂 I a sure there are a lot of rescuers lined up. @Meredithlbl
Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…: Two this week. 50 Shades and Sentence. ooooo, see I said it and was trying not to. Ritu going all in charge on us in that first one, or is she? Hmm. You have to read to find out. Am I teasing? Okay, far enough with that. And wasn’t even intentional. 🙂 That second was is great.
Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Love. So last weeks review of Sandra’s Haiku was a bit odd. I think I didn’t delete something in there and it was confusing. This week, let’s see if I do better. Two Haiku this week. Lot of hand holding going on. That second one works well for sure. The opposite meanings of the two sentence structure really brings out something. Really cool shell art she did.
Florence of Meanings and Musings: Sparks I think there is a Haiku but I was a bit taken with the image used. Took me a while to figure out the parts. I must be getting old. Oh, wait, it’s the amnesia. I don’t remember certain things. Oh, the life of a 40 something year old virgin.
Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: Charging With Hope. At first when I saw this title I thought of credit cards and hope of money to pay them off. Then I read the Haiku. In a way, it still fits. 🙂 Although I don’t believe that is the intent.
Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Through It All. Interesting. Sorry if I’m a little slim on my reviews for the next few poets. This is my first one after about 2 hours sleep. Could be dangerous. I hope you read typonese. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.
Chennai of Twisted Tales on Life: Three this week. For My Ex Lover. Three this week. Hmm. I think a situation that is probably more common than not if people are willing to admit. Some people are just not willing to give it all and accept it all. Commit or not. That is the question. Just so you know, men have issues. It takes years for some to get it, and some just never understand.
Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams: Lost Love. Well, you did skip a week of Haiku so I mean I guess things wane a little. But really, strangers? Come on. After knowing me, how could you ever forget me? And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato
Colleen of Silver Threading: Dark Lovers. First up, new look to her blog. I like her previous look, I think because of how much of a header you could see and that was entertaining to me. But you have to try new things at times. I’ve thought about doing it, but it can be a pain if the themes are not compatible. Now for the Haiku. Uh oh, say it isn’t so. Ron in the doghouse? Just kidding, we all know that’s not possible. And I mean her Ron, not me Ron. I know, it confuses me at times. @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.
Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Baby Take Your Time. I got to choose the title this week. As I read the Haiku and then thought, a song lyric came to mind. Below is the song. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.
Skybright1 of from heart to head: Love’s Time. An interesting message. Still thinking about it. Kind of deep for me after so little sleep. I think all should go read and see what you think.
Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Open Hearts. In a way I think she and I had similar takes on this, even with different Haiku. Very nice.
Melissa M of This, right now: Ceasefire. Very interesting imagery here. I can see this one. I like that second line a lot.
Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: Who’s In Charge. Ah, good message. Very true. Surprised after reading so many but not sure why as was staying with theme of blog.
And the Closing Haiku:
Charge the gates of Hell
Searching for that only one,
Lovers are worth time.
