RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #66 Pine&Grief

First, make certain to come back and visit those Haiku that are submitted later in the week. We all tend to have our certain times to publish, don’t miss out supporting your other Haiku community members.

Can you go nature this week with your Haiku? Not a must, but it could be a challenge. Click HERE for the synonyms for Grief. And HERE for Pine. Be sure to scan down the entire page for each as you may be surprised at what you may find. My original thought of Pine doesn’t even appear till the very end.

Remember I will not only reblogging the first entry, there will also be a reblog of another member of the Haiku Family. Since the Haiku comes out at the same time, some of you don’t get that opportunity to write a Haiku in your sleep. So, I’ve decided to give a person a week, in addition to the first entry, a reblog here on Ronovan Writes. Make certain you check back here on your reblog for comments. They do get them.

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge

Challenge #66

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 HowManySyllables.com.
  • 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 Thesaurus.com 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 https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-66-pinegrief/
  • Non Ping back Link https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/category/haiku-prompt-challenge/
  • 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 is currently posted at 8 AM New York City time on Mondays to give people a better chance than the old 9 AM time.
  • Deadline is Noon New York City time on the Sunday following the Challenge Post release.

conifer

Oh, Christmas Tree
Deep green conifer
lovely against pure, white snow
rue loss at Christmas?
grief
Grief
Despair consumes him
reliving terrors of war
mourning loss of life.
green divider
by Meredith
pine
K.I.S.
No fancy coffin
Ornate design to hold clay
Turn mourning to joy
refugees
Refugees
Woe for the children
must flee what is familiar
Brood in foreign land

Haiku – Odd Couplings by @Roccoco_a_GoGo

TJ Paris is in first with 3 Haiku and photos included. @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Life is too short to drink bad wine

This butterfly perched upon the seaweed of a tidal pool. The strange contrast of the butterfly, the seaweed and coral shards was strangely satisfying.This butterfly perched upon the seaweed of a tidal pool. The strange contrast of the butterfly, the seaweed and coral shards was oddly satisfying. Exmouth Western Australia

 A strange dalliance

A butterfly pines for love

Grieving on seaweed

…O…

The sun just rising on the horizon, the moon and a single star hovering above the makeshift tent we built on the desert island. The sun just rising on the horizon, the moon and a single star hovering above the makeshift tent we built on the desert island.

Afar, the moon grieves

Caught in hopeless attraction

Endlessly pining

…O…

Tears in the kitchen sink. Tears in the kitchen sink.

Rainy Winter’s Day

I so pine for the sunshine

The clouds show their grief

It’s Monday again! How? Why? 3 offerings for the wonderful Ronovan of Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Grief’s Release

The she wolf pines for

Her lost lover to return,

would bring grief’s release.
