Please Read. I do this challenge for a few reasons two of them are:
- To give prompts for all types of writers that make it easy for them to have a go-to place each week in addition to their other spots.
- To give those honoring my challenge with their efforts a few extra visitors each week to find their blogs and read their poems. I’ve seen the increase in the likes on their poems increase to amazing numbers over the 6+ years this weekly challenge has been running without interruption.
- To create friendships between people from all over the world. And that has happened and I am so happy to see those bongs grow strong.
But, some don’t receive the visits I would like for them to have. I think it’s mostly due to when the poems are written. As we all know, the beginning of the week is the hot time for blogging. So, if you can keep it in mind to come back and visit some of those poets, I would appreciate it. You can click like, if you like it, leave a comment if you’re inspired to. I sometimes just comment with a reaction, a haiku of my on in response to there, or a simple “Nice. I like it.” but I only say that if I think it’s “nice” and “I like it”. But if I don’t say anything, that doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s nice. 🙂 Sometimes I’m at a low ebb of energy with all this Chronic Fatigue along with the allergic to heat… and I live near Atlanta, GA. Just imagine… CF+HeatAllergy+Atlanta=MeltingRonovan
Drop by on Wednesday for the Décima Poetry Challenge. Sometimes the two challenges have similar themes you can unite over the week.
Check out the COMMENTS for entries this week, and come back throughout the week to see more links to poems as they come in.

Click HERE. To learn about the new style I’ve created called Shi Rensa Haiku and how to write one, maybe even for the challenges.
How to write Haiku in English. And how to do a Pingback.
- 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.
- The link above has links on how to write Haibun and Tanka. You can also do the 3/5/3 form if you like instead of the 5/7/5 that I usually use. Write, share, and have fun. For syllable help, visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
- Words have different definitions and you use the definitions that work for you Haiku. You can also use SYNONYMS. Go to Thesaurus.com for synonym help.
- Copy the link of your finished haiku URL and paste in a comment below so we can all go and visit your Haiku.
- You can do a pingback. What’s a pingback? Place the URL from the address bar up top from this post as a link within your post. Your inclusion of the link encourages others to try the challenge, be creative, and join a community to find friends and more followers (hopefully). I honestly gain nothing with more people visiting the post. I don’t have ads running that generates revenue by your visit or by clicks on whatever WordPress has put up.
- Click HERE for a detailed post on PINGBACKS.
- If you like, copy the image in this post and place it within their post, just to show the Haiku is part of this challenge.
- I am not saying you need or even should, but if you would like to do so then go ahead.
The Challenge Words!
