Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 454 BERRIES and Winter.

Here in the South we have something called Blackberry Winter. It’s the cold snap late in spring while blackberries are in bloom. Not sure if they are in bloom right now but it sure is cold. But then again it is March. The problem is, in this region it’s 70 one day and 31 the next.

To know how many syllables in a particular word try







How to Write Haiku in English. 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.

    • Joyous Spring-The Shi Rensa

      Spring, you’re the berries,
      ecstatic, earth-splattered green,
      bid winter, adieu.

      Bid winter, adieu,
      its frolic, folly, frozen
      corpse of buried earth.

      Corpse of buried earth,
      what enigmas lay beneath,
      what fossilized dreams?

      What fossilized dreams
      will we plunder, scrape earths flesh
      in our search for warmth?
