Challenge #55

The rules are simple.

  • Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and three for the third, but you can use what you like. For syllable help visit
  • 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. Go to for Synonym help.
  • Copy the link of your finished haiku URL  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 ping back. What’s a ping back? Put a link back to this prompt page, if you like within your post, as long as it does not take away from your haiku. 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. A link in your post does give others a chance to find us and join in. Use one of the two below if you like.
  • Ping back Link
  • Non Ping back Link
  • You may copy the badge/image appearing in this post and place it on your site if you wish, most normally use it within their post. 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. I sometimes make custom images for the week, if time and health permits.


The Challenge Words!

Five & Thrive

My example:

Breathe to be alive,

While you exercise to thrive;

Exhausted, take five.

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

Much Love, Success, and Respect

  1. Five & Thrive. You really are trying to make my mind explode. The Haiku should prove to be a challenge but what you will get, I have not idea. Ronovan, I think it is time to ask you, “How does your mind work?” jk 😉 ps. A definite challenge. I throw the gauntlet down, challenging myself to meet those word with full anticipation of discovering the significance of their existence in this challenge. I always feel there is always something to learn. Well, on to it. Thanks for the unusual combination Ronovan. You really have done it this time. (y)


  2. This week I ended up with three again (should I have done five? :)) The first two I couldn’t resist and came very quickly: called “Prompt 55” and “Haiku”. The third one is on a more serious note but not about climate change (yeah for a change)– it’s called “Wisdom Energies”. THANKS for the prompt and inspiring quote! Haiku Wisdom Energies Prompt 55
