Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 403 TOWER and Watch.

Did you guess what my Haiku A Maple Leaf Invader was about last week? Well the past couple of weeks have been inspired by the titles of rock n roll songs. SMOKE and Water then FREE and World.

Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple

Rockin’ in the Free World by Neil Young

As some of you may know Neil Young was Canada and has both Canadian and US citizenship. Thus we have the Maple Leaf Invader.

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.


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.

    • We Watch-The Shi Rensa

      We often but watch,
      stand to the side as events
      tower above us.

      Tower above us,
      behemoths of tragedy
      that annihilate.

      That annihilate,
      draw us deep into sorrow:
      we can do little.

      We can do little
      yet, for all that we can’t do,
      we can watch and weep.
