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 Thesaurus.com 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.

Some people like to copy and paste the challenge image into their posts. That’s okay with me.

Sites to help:

RhymeZone.com
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster.com  Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.


An example of an abba/accddc décima:

On soft breeze a divine bouquet
her invitation is discrete,
to imbibe in her gifts so sweet,
and my heart with joy must obey.

Eternal beasts come into play.
Distance is an icy lover,
these shivers I cannot cover.
Time will tell the battles end.
I’ll travel along that soft wind,
to love to rediscover.

If you like, there is a Décima Challenge here each Wednesday.

Here is the quick and perhaps easier description of a Décima Poem:

I’ve had a much-valued part of my poetry family let me know that my description might not be clear enough, so I’ve come up with this. There are 10 lines (stanza) of poetry, but unlike other poetry that rhymes there is a strict set rhyming pattern, we must stick to.
In addition, each line must only have 8 syllables.
The rhyme pattern is;
a
b
b
a
a
c
c
d
d
c

But remember, if you want to be a slight bit different, you can do the four lines of abba, then the six lines of accddc.

I’m having to set this one up a little early because I will probably be without power in a few hours, as in my Sunday early morning dark hours. Ice coming in, thus the inspiration for the words this week, although they can be used in so many ways.

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

To Succeed or Not: A blogger’s dilemma.

One question, one goal… eventually makes its way into a bloggers mind; Is my Blog a Success? The answer is not as simple as you may think.

For each blogger success is measured differently. For some, and I believe many, the number of hits or visits a particular blog post receives, or their blog overall is the key. For others it’s the number of likes a post gets. And others it’s the interaction or the comments the post receives. These are some of what my friend Hugh over at Hugh’s Views and News has included in his end of year post, How Do You Measure The Success of Your Blog Post. Hugh is one of my oldest blogger friends and if you want blog tips you should visit his site. Where I have reclined in my blogger’s chair over the year to the point of becoming comatose, Hugh has flourished. Our ways and thoughts differed at times on how to blog but we both agreed we knew what we were talking about. Although perhaps that last sentence almost makes no sense at all.

I don’t usually do a end of year post, or at least have not in years. I once was a successful blogger, or at least I was in the eyes of metrics and when I was dedicated to the endeavor. Blog tips, writing, poetry, humor. You name it and I wrote it. Give me a topic and 20 minutes and I’d have a 1000 word post with images published. Anything to drive traffic to my site. And it was nice seeing all those big numbers. But over time as I changed how I blogged I noticed a few things. One was not as many of those visiting were here for my posts as much as for what I was doing for theirs.

Now that may sound a bit of a duh type reason, but I’m not talking as in how my tips helped them, although for many they did. I did a lot that would promote other blogs each week, to the point I eventually burned out on blogging and am now the shell of a blog you read before you.

But I am a happy shell. I realized that what I really wanted to do with my blog was make it be useful. I’ve started people on their haiku poetry journeys to the point of publishing books. I had writing challenges that influenced or inspired people to publish books of fiction. And I think that I lived by example in doing all of the crazy blogging while writing a historical fiction novel Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling. A 4.5 out of 5 star reviewed historical pirate adventure using true historical figures and events as models for those in the  story.

I don’t have as many visitors or likes as I once did but the truth is you can’t really use those as measurements. You don’t have to visit a post to click like. Just click like in the WordPress Reader and never read the post at all. For my posts that can be tricky as I write haiku poetry so you can actually read it in the reader, and my other posts are prompts with the words in the title. Yeah, I could change this up and force the visit, but why?

I don’t know how many people use my prompts for their poetry as they don’t need to link back to my prompt posts to write a poem. But I do like to think many people do. I continue to have new people follow my blog each week. I also have the random new person comment a real sentence in response to a post.

And the final measure of success?

I’m still blogging and writing and surviving this world that isn’t the same as it was when I started in 2014 as an amnesiac loner who had chronic pain. I’m still those things but the world has changed.

For blogging tips visit Hugh, or maybe even some of my old tips. Hugh is quite active in his comment section so you will get to know him.

    • 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 Thesaurus.com 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.

  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.

  • You can also put the link of this challenge in your post to let your followers know where to go if they want to participate. This is called a Pingback. This is not mandatory to join in or to put your post link in the comments. Click HERE to find out how to do a Pingback.
  • Reblogging is great as well.

Some people like to copy and paste the challenge image into their posts. That’s okay with me.

Sites to help:

RhymeZone.com
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster.com  Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 387 COLOR(ed/s) and Three.

It’s the week of Thanksgiving here in the United States. For some that doesn’t mean too much these days. For me it’s about being thankful for what I have; family, reasonable health I can live with, and a mind that can still put together a sentence every now and then in spite of the concussions I’ve had and memory loss. My father passed away in June. I’m living with my mother as her care giver (Talk about an experience and life adjustment there), but when all is said and done, there are still things to give thanks for.

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

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.
