RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge Roundup 53

If you do not see your name below and you did write a Haiku for the challenge, please leave a comment and I will add you to the Review. I may have missed the link in the comments section of the Challenge. I did visit the sites of those who participated last week but may have missed a post.  Thank you for your participation.

If you see Roundup in the Title, that means I just couldn’t do comments this week for everyone due to health issues. Review means comments.

poetry haikuWeek #53 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Guide & Mad.

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.

New This Week

Elusive Trope of Musings of a Photogenic Memory: Gotta like that title. “I use what I call my “stage name” Elusive Trope in many of my presences on the web. In the past I have hid behind my stage name as a way to keep secret my real identity. I did, in part, because the non-profit for which I worked was apolitical and what I blogged and commented upon was usually political in nature. I slowly started to come out of the virtual closet and now I am just going to come entirely out of the closet.”~From the About Page of the Elusive Trope. Bet you want to know the real identity, right? Well go find out. Muhahahahaha. The Haiku: Tribulation. I think the Elusive one and I have some things in common. Check out the About page. Even though we don’t share all the same things we end up with some same results.
