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
  • 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 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.

  1. That one went … fast. I love how my mind connected the dots, this morning. I expect that several more haiku will eventually wander into my mind throughout the day. (I avoided any reference to coffins and their ilk, etc.) Gonna find the coffee, now.

  2. This is truly odd, my friend–as I just posted a haiku (with Shadorma and Tanaga) about Grief and Evergreen…all before knowing your prompt words. Do you hear the Twilight Zone music theme?? I’ll have to come up with something new now, as I can’t pass up your prompts!

  3. Hi Ronovan.

    Please accept my contribution to the challenge At As I say in the post , go for the challenge as it stands , 2 words to work into a haiku, no thesaurus no subtle twists and for me at least one connecting image to multiply the reader¹s senses.

    Cheers Denis
