Ronovan’s Whacked Out Blog!

You may notice something odd about the blog. Like no sidebars. Well the sidebars have gone whacky so I removed them for now until the laptop comes in. I did some cosmetic changes for the time being. Hope you enjoy.

Much Respect & Much Love


Aux armes, citoyens! Rise up! by TJ Paris @Roccoco_a_GoGo

TJ Paris is in first this week from Western Australia. Poor man was waiting for the challenge to come out and found out it was going at a random time today. 🙂

Life is too short to drink bad wine

Hermes soars atop the column on the Place de la Bastille. Hermes soars atop the column on the Place de la Bastille.

Rise up citizens,

to save civilisation

with human kindness

Ronovan’s of Ronovan Writes has offered this week’s prompts of Rise and Save.

One of the most enduring symbolic actions of the French Revolution was the storming of the Bastille. The people of Paris nobly liberating the tragically prisoners trapped in this vile and noisome fortress. So complete was the destruction of this symbol of Royal oppression that not a stone remains. Then in July 1830 the Parisians again got all revolutionary and this column was put on top of the location where the Bastille stood to show the Parisians were revolting (again!).

How I can picture the iron gates of the Bastille being torn down and the poor, wrongly imprisoned scions of the people flooding out in their hundreds while the vile Aristos shuddered (quite rightly) in their gilded palaces.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #58 Rise&Save

ronovan_writes_haiku_prompt_badge_autumn_2014Challenge #58

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!

Rise & Save

My example:

Whispers of ANCIENTS

Rise to now’s indignities,

To save the future.

The two sentences should read as;

Whispers of the ancients rise to now’s indignities.

Rise to now’s indignities to save the future.

Much Love, Success, and Respect
