RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #52 Silent&Loud

As a tribute to the very first Haiku challenge, yes that would be #1 from one year ago. Below is a Retro look at what you would  have seen then, prompt words and all, except for the image and the link information in red below the image. Five people participated in that first Haiku challenge, and although we now how over 40 poets each week, and not always the same ones, only one poet remains from that very first challenge to this day as a participant.

I want to thank Meredith of Meredith’s Musings for being there that first Challenge Week and being here today. I’m not certain how many she’s led to this challenge, but I appreciate everything she’s done. Love you Meredith! Expect to see her Haiku entry this week appear as a reblog here on Ronovan Writes.

And as a further honor for her loyalty here is the Image for this week.

Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #52

The rules are simple.

  • Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English as my style, but you can use what you like.
  • The two words can be used as you like. Words have different definitions and you can use the definitions you like. You can even use a synonym word as long as it does not change the meaning.
  • Copy a link to your finished haiku  in a comment so we can all go and visit your site to see what you have done. I will comment on your site. You can do a pink back, put a link back to the prompt page, if you like within your post, as long as it does not take away from your haiku. I would do it at the very bottom near where one normally puts the copyright. But I am not encouraging anyone to do that. This is just permission to do so. This is simply a prompt and challenge to encourage people to try Haiku and give some a prompt and a place to share in comments so we can find each other.
  • Ping back Linkhttps://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/07/06/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-52-silent-loud/
  • Non Pingback Link https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/
  • You may copy the badge appearing in this post and place it on your site if you wish. I am not saying you need to, but if you would like to do so then go ahead. It is simply my way of saying thank you for participating.

 

The Challenge Words! Finally!

Silent

Loud

My example:

You bring silence out,

Over the noise of the world’s moans,

Cacophonous dins ring.

As you can see I changed the words but kept their meanings. Enjoy the challenge and I look forward to seeing your Haiku.

Much Respect

Here is a very good article from author Olga Núñez Miret, one the LitWorldInterviews Team. Great information and I’m going to be looking at this option more myself.

Lit World Interviews

Hi all:

Today I’m sharing a post that I published in my own blog last week. Sorry to those of you who might have read it already, but people seemed quite interested, so I thought I’d share it with you too.
I know we’ve all been told we should use social media to promote ourselves, our businesses, blogs, books, painting, whatever we do. And I know we all have our preferences, or sites that we understand better, or we find more useful, or that don’t give us a headache.

I must confess I quite liked Twitter to begin with, when I joined a few months before I published my first book. I would follow people I found interesting, read their Tweets, and be excited if somebody decided to follow me. I read about the subject, I tweeted quotations, ideas, suggestions, retweeted interesting things…

I’ve met many interesting people through Twitter…

Always be prepared to…

So I have one more consecutive post of offering up a Quote to do in order to meet the challenge by Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life.

Today I want to share one for perhaps not only my Christian friends, but all my friends. Thinking upon this quote helps you quite a bit.

1 Peter 3:15-16 NIV

“But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.”

I know, those of you who don’t believe in Jesus could just not read that part, but the rest would work.

A long time ago I would shy away from engaging with people who would lash out against my faith.  Why? Because I didn’t know the details as much. The truth is, to be saved you don’t have to know the details. You learn how to LIVE like a Christian along the way. The knowledge in the Bible doesn’t magically fill your Bible because you whispered to a preacher at the front of a church one Sunday morning.

Although, a lot of the basic things about being a Christian we all know. A lot of it is common sense things.

But back to the purpose of the article. Several years ago I began to get involved in something called Apologetics. This is not an apology. This is defined as “reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine”. It might be more commonly known as Defending Your Faith. And the religious doctrine part sort of came about later. It was a legal thing back in the day. Like, oh about 2000 or so years ago.

As I began to study and learn more about the Bible, the facts of information found in the Bible and a lot of other things, I was better able to defend my faith. I was prepared to give an answer.

For Christians we’re told here to to study the Word of God. We are told to be prepared. Why? It’s not just to defend our faith to others, but to ourselves as we face various trials in life. If you are confident in your belief nothing will shake it loose. It may tremble, but it will not fall.

I know this for a fact. I’ve seen it in action, in the worst possible moment imaginable.

But as to the quote. If you defend your beliefs in a polite fashion, and I don’t mean roll over and give up, then when people try to say you are a bad person other people will ignore those reports. Unfortunately we have a lot of Christians that don’t defend in a polite manner. I try. Maybe I fail at times, but so far I think my previous articles have been polite and I haven’t ridiculed anyone or anything like that.

Would be nice for all people to be like that.

Much Love, Success, and Respect

Ronovan
