Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 336 MAD and Sane

A new Seasonal Badge for the Challenge is below if you would like to use it. Some of you may have noticed in the reader the badge has returned to the usual one. This is because our poets are accustomed to seeing that one, so I set it as my featured image. We’ve been missing a few of our regulars for the past couple of weeks since I changed the image, and I’m worried the new image might have lost them. I hope they come back soon.

Check out the COMMENTS for entries this week, and come back throughout the week to see more links to poems as they come in.

Drop by on Wednesday for the Décima Poetry Challenge. Sometimes the two challenges have similar themes you can unite over the week.

Click HERE for last week’s collected links for easy access to the poems of last week’s poets. (CURL and Paw)

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.

An updated How to Write Haiku in English. that has just a little more detail and for knowledge and perhaps craft. And how to do a Pingback.

Useful Links.
Thesaurus: MAD, Sane
Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The Guidelines:

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) 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,
    • For syllables for each word, and different definitions, you use the definition that works for you Haiku. You can also use SYNONYMS. Go to for synonym help.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!

MAD and Sane

    • A December 14th,2020 Electoral College Series of Moments-a Shi Rensa

      E-College voting:
      A slightly mad process…still
      sane is as sane does.

      Sane is as sane does,
      We hop, skip, jump ‘cross the land,
      tallying the votes.

      Tallying the votes,
      is a fractured procedure-
      Fractured and fractious.

      Fractured and fractious
      though it may be, it will end
      With a beginning.

      • There are some who miss the reason
        such a system was put in place.
        They think the whole thing a disgrace,
        but fools rejection is treason.

        His minions’ deaf ears falls pleas on,
        knowing four rears ago he won,
        by the same E-College end run.
        A state large should not hold title,
        over those smaller but as vital.
        The middle feeds everyone.
