RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #59 Bird&Red

ronovan_writes_haiku_prompt_badge_autumn_2014Challenge #59

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!

Bird & Red

(Words by my boy “B”. He said it would be impossible.)

My example:

AS the sun burns RED,

Hearts RISE from their MISERY,

LIKE LOVE on BIRD wings.

The two sentences should read as;

As the sun burns red, hearts rise from their misery.

Hearts rise from their misery like love on bird wings.

Much Love, Success, and Respect

    • Thank you! I am not exactly happy with the last line but when one has a deadline one has a deadline. I still can’t believe my son went with Red and Bird. Well, actually I can. He’s just like that. 🙂

  1. I looked at the words, bird & red, and thought, FTW*. Your son is a wild one & quite clever. There are words and Haiku for any of them. With patience, all will come eventually. As usual, I like to post my Haiku on Tuesday. So, see you all tomorrow. Checking out the gems so far & enjoying them. jk 😎

  2. Hi–my two Ontheland pingbacks are above. I did 4 poems this time. I tried to restrain myself but in the end wanted to post them all. The titles are: ‘Red Cross’, ‘Upset Idiom’, ‘Canine Ambush’, and ‘Childhood Memory #2’. Cheers!
