RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #77 Year&New

The link says 76 but it really is Challenge 77.

So what if the words are typical!!!!! What can you do with them that’s not so typical? But typical is good this time around.

I’m going to try and get back in the saddle with the review with this weeks challenge. Wish me luck.

Check out Guidelines 2 and 3 for something new added. But nothing that changes anything.

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge

Challenge #77

The Guidelines are simple.

  1. 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
  2. Or you can use the 3/5/3 style instead of 5/7/5.
  3. What to do a little bit more with your Haiku? Read Haiku, Tanka, and Haibun. It’s all poetry to me. Learn the difference.
  4. 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.
  5. 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. Click HERE for a detailed article on Ping Backs.
  6. Ping back Link
  7. Non Ping back Link
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Deadline is Noon New York City time on the Sunday following the Challenge Post release.

    Here’s my entry for this week. Ron, thanks for all your efforts. Tagging along has been a blast! Oops! I think I just showed my age with that one. :))
    And to all who stopped by, left a comment and showed some appreciation for my scribbles, I thank you.

    May the New Year bring you more of what you want, and all of what you need.
    To you and yours, my wish for you is a healthy, happy, prosperous, PEACEFUL New Year!!!!!

  3. […] Ronovan’s haiku prompts this week are ‘new’ and ‘year’ –obvious perhaps, but not really, when caught up with life’s activities– these words dragged me out of preoccupations such as cookie making, cookie eating, seasonal blues, road trips, kicking a touch of flu, and so on, into a reflective ‘end-of-the-year zone’.   As the year ends, I find myself appreciating the time I have spent participating in this haiku community– which has been every week since I first joined in July  at prompt #52.  This week I have written a Troiku that is  based on a haiku using the prompt words (in red).  You’ll notice that the closing stanza is also a haiku using the prompt words.

  4. Hi Ronovan. Here is my contribution to the last challenge of 2105 delivered on the first day of 2016. . I thank all the wonderful sharing community of poets who have inspired me in 2015. I especially thank those haiku artists who have encouraged me with comments and support. I finally thank you Ronovan for your selfless time, untiring creativity and encouragement to all of us who draw so much from participating in your weekly challenges. Happy New Year to all of you.
