RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #62 Start&Hot

Um, yeah, my Opening Haiku this week is sooo bad and sooo not serious that I am almost ashamed to include it. But hey, it’s me. I have NO SHAME! No SHAME FOR YOU! Muahahha. I have just ruined any credibility this challenge may have had. (And one month to my next doctor’s appointment and medication update. I am sooo sorry for you people.)

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge

Challenge #62

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 5 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 one of the badges/images appearing in this post below or above 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!

Start & Hot

Opening Haiku

Lighten up y’all peeps,

The party’s about to start,

Gettin’ hot in here.

The two sentences should read as;

Lighten up y’all peeps, the party’s about to start.

The party’s about to start, gettin’ hot in here.

Okay, so this is hours later after I finished putting all of this together and I just could not leave you with that as the only Opening Haiku, but I am at least leaving it to show how crazy and stupid I can get. (Don’t tell my boy “B” I said the “s” word. It’s bad.)

The seasons change here,

From hot to cold the air chills,

And the birds start south.

The two sentences formed should read as;

The seasons change here, from hot to cold the air chills.

From hot to cold the air chills, and the birds start south.

  1. This is an interesting way of holding on to summer’s heat–for Northeners–looking forward to reading. Enjoyed both of the opening haiku. I followed a seasonal theme as that was already on my mind. My pingback is above.😊

  2. My Ping Back didn’t work. Checked out why. The date in the Ping Back Link has the 7th of Sept instead of 14th Sept. Going to correct my Ping ans send on my two Haiku. Second one meant to be Humourous/Double entendre. Hope it works. Had fun coming up these two. Your words just somehow come together. My mind keeps surprising me where it takes me. Another inspiring week, for sure! jk 😀

  3. I can tell by your opening comments that you’re a Seinfeld fan…nice! I can also tell by your opening haiku that one month until medication update is going to be a loooong 30 days! Lol. Although I will say, you have good taste in music. 😉 To push you even further over the edge…I will now submit my haiku at the last possible minute.
