RonovanWrites 73rd #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Challenge LINKS

Visit those you haven’t.

Some of you may wonder why I don’t comment all the time on your Haiku posts. Sometimes I would end up saying the same thing twice, therefore I keep the comments for the review. You may also notice I don’t click like on your link comment in the Challenge post or on your blog post until the weekends normally. The like is my way of knowing I have put you in the review. I’ve read your Haiku before that.

Thank you for so many checking their ping backs.

Haiku Review 73

These are LINKS this week except for the NEW people. Issues beyond my control make it a bit difficult to focus on being anywhere near witty in commenting.

New Offenders!

NEW! Linda Lee: Shades of the Rainbow | Heal My Complex PTSD. The Haiku is in the comments of the challenge post and the Shades of the Rainbow link will take you there while the Heal My Complex PTSD will take you to her actual blog, click the blog link for a Brief History of Linda. @LadyQuixote

NEW! Wesley Hollifield: Snap Worthy | NearlyWes. A first Haiku Challenge that did not suck. I know you are wondering what I mean by that, you’ll need to go find out what I mean. “My name is still Wesley Pell Hollifield, I know right, shocker! I tried to get my legal name changed to Ash because I like to be the very best, but the court was all ‘That’s a bad joke’ and I was yelling ‘YOU JUST DON’T KNOW FUNNY!’” To find out the entire story, click HERE.

NEW! Geetha Prodhom: Shaking skies ink black | Geetha Balvannanathan’s Blog. OOOoooOOOo. A nature Haiku with that last night a very nice use of words. “I write because I mainly see beauty in the world and it touches me so much that I wish to express the feelings it generates but I also write from experiences I have gone through and ugly happenings I have witnessed for others and that too generates its own set of emotions which I then try to release through the same medium. I hope this blog brings a blend of all of this to those who wish to read it so that they may see the beauty and revel in it as well as see the ugliness and give some thought to what creates it.”  For the rest of the story click HERE

NEW! Ken G.: Two Sides of the Same Season | RIVRVLOGR. Two nature Haiku telling the flip sides of the winter season. Ken is brought to us through the viewing pleasure of Jane Dougherty’s entries.  “Retired, then transplanted from Western New York to Missouri, I find myself missing familiar sights, but remind myself that familiarity is a state of mind.” Click HERE for more.

NEW! Mark Schutter: BLACK and WHITE | Maleko’s Art. An interesting piece. It could describe so many things. Nature, art, humanity. You name it and this would cover it. I want to say Mark participated with us quite some time ago but I’ll reintroduce him here. “I am an artist attempting to capture a moment that may offer a fleeting glimpse of transcendence pulling back the curtain that often hides the beauty, the mystery, the peace, the mercy and love that we all crave.” A lot more HERE. I dare you, you’ll be surprised. @MWSchutter

  1. I worry about you when I note limited comments and no Ronovan Haiku. I know how much you enjoy these things and hope that you are not having headaches. I spent years battling them, some requiring hospitalization. It cost me jobs and a marriage. Then as quickly as they started they ended. Wish I could tell you how I got healed, but know that it does happen. Wishing you a stress and pain free week!
