Francis Barker | The Midlode Mercury: Haiku: ‘Abundance’ A First Timer to the challenge. At least I think so. You know me though, I’m lucky to remember to post the challenge in the first place.


Crazy Nerds: Draft


William Thomas Engleson:

The Last Season

I am but a weed,
chilled on the earth, awaiting
Winter’s snow dusting.

 

(And a Shi Rensa)

The Last Season

I am but a weed,
chilled on the earth, awaiting
Winters snow dusting.

Winter’s snow dusting,
Scattered o’er the crying earth,
A silver wasteland.

A silver wasteland,
A dream of frozen sorrows,
And no passage home.

And no passage home,
The deep of it, the journey
Will not see the end.

Haiku Challenge 327 Poets Collected.

Links to the 21 Poets with around 27 Poems, including 2 Tanka and 2 First Visiting Poets from last week’s challenge of DRIP & DROP and their haiku. All links open in a new window when clicked on.

For some who visit, you may wonder why some links below have titles and some have the full post address. Haiku traditionally do not have titles. But, if a poet does use one, which is their prerogative, then I shorten the link to just the title for a more visually appealing, less busy, and easier to read post.

Thank you to all those who participated this week. The more the that write the more I know I offer the right prompt words for the week. It isn’t always easy to come up with original ones I haven’t used before, at least not after 300 of these. I have been forced to use a few twice. As long as y’all write and enjoy, I’ll keep doing them.

I know this is supposed to be a challenge, but I seriously gave myself a headache with these words when it came to writing my own offerings. I finally got the creative juices rolling at 2 AM when I was dozing off to sleep and one line came to me. Thankfully, I remembered it the next morning.

http://www.engleson.ca:

Fire Virus x 2

Smoke wings feather lungs,
breath less, less breathing, life clipped
of air, of time, of…

The weight of wings, the
choke of air, the flight warped, the
snip of smoke, clip-crushed.

 

Our Times

Smoke wings feather lungs,
Breath less, less breathing, life clipped
Of air, of time, of…

Of air, of time, of
Coronavirus sirens,
Screaming out our days

Screaming out our days,
The blind wander the wasteland,
Led by a fool,

Led by a fool,
Drowning in gold-leafed teardrops:
our salty regret.

http://www.engleson.caA Haiku which was then incorporated into a Shi Rensa Haiku entry. Very nice, dude, very nice. And a beautiful one at that.

Doubts

Did I play my part?
Were your expectations met?
Did I fall just short?
Did I fall just short,
Fail to meet the challenge:
your beautiful dream?
Your beautiful dream
was there, my fingers reached out
as the bubble burst.
As the bubble burst,
There was no time for sorrow,
No tears for lost love.

sand

Each orb brings darkness,
Shadows of night that alight
On the eye of death.

A Shi Rensa Haiku

Each orb brings darkness,
Shadows of night that alight
On the eye of death.

On the eye of death,
The pupil shifts its contour
As the light turns out.

As the light turns out,
The darkness envelopes me
And I weep alone.

And I weep alone
For the earth which I depart
To a sweeter sleep.

Ronovan Writes’ Week 102 #Haiku #Review with #Links.

Annette of Annette Rochelle Aben-Um, Anette with pom poms? Why did I never think of that one before? You would have thought that would have crossed my mind at least once . . . at least.

Judy of Edwina’s Episodes-Beauties in a Row shows off more than Judy’s talent but her other assets, although perhaps not her most, um, admirable ones. (Did I say that?)

Jane of Jane Dougherty Writes-I think Jane’s making commentary on my day of birth. She doesn’t know the half of it. Muahahahaha. Birthing Pains Triumphant.

Veronica of Charlottesville Winter-Deep, seriously. A short story in three lines, just the way it should be. Excellent. Closed Doors on My Birthday.

TJ of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin-Spring Riot. Amazing photo here and perfect for the title and haiku.

Xenia of WhippetWisdom-A thinky piece, at least to me. Two Whippet’s joyous down by the sea. Summer Blessings.

Wendy of The Dragon’s Lair-Miracle of Miracles, doth the darling one speak.

Mira of To Wear a Rainbow-I’ve been reading and watching documentaries lately. It’s a thing I do. Hate because I love history. The recent object of choice seems to run right along with Glory and Cheer by Mira.

Mira of They, You, and Me-Ah, I didn’t know I could reach that far. I’m blushing. Tender Touch.

Ken of RIVRVLogr-Interesting haiku. That first line has me thinking along three different ideas for the Haiku. Spring Unfolds.

Bill of Engleson.ca-Dude, really? I wonder what the numbers are. Hmm. Balance.

Debra of D.B. Mauldin-Summer Solstice. Imagine, my birthday is the first day.

Frances of imanikingblog-Welcome to Our World! Ha, if only they could speak words we understood.

Peter of Wherever I lay my pen, that’s my home-Birth Cheer. You know, I think you’re right. It does make people feel like that. You would almost think the opposite.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway-All About Me! Yes, Ritu devoted two haiku to me. Sigh, I am so adorable it hurts sometimes.

FloridaBorne of Two On A Rant-Night’s End. OOOoOOoooo dark and spooky. Kinda sorta.

Tessa of Always A Writer-Too Easy, Get Ready! Birth is the title of Tessa’s haiku. Oh, how new moms have probably said these words then regretted it.

Leara of LearaWrites-Tourist’s Treat. Party TIME!!!!!!! Beach Blanket BINGO!!!!!

Pat of Thoughts and Entanglements-Color Codes. I know Pat is wondering what in the world I’m doing coming up with that title, but codes signify things, as this haiku content signifies something. So there. Hrmph.

Marie of The Syllabub Sea-Carry On. Yep, another weirdo title from me, but I gots to do what I gots to do. They make sense to me.

Ruby of Whispering Thoughts-Preggo Pause. O,o Don’t I just make you wonder sometimes? Yes, I am that kind of mood during this round of reviewing. Lucky you guys, right?

Sandra of Wild Daffodil-Heat. Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.

Khor of Project Prose-Wonder of Life. A new one can make things like new again.

Janice of Ontheland-Summer’s birthday celebration. Even nature knew to celebrate my birthday.

Denis of Haiku Hound-Banksia Blooming. Interesting looking specimen.

Diedre of Toward the Within-Fragile Brevity. Okay, having to think too much. Brain . . . splitting . . . in . . .  two. Must . . . eject . . .

Jacqueline of A Cooking Pot and Twistedtales-Hip, hip, hurray. I had nothing to do with the twins. Just saying.

R. Todd of A Flash of Fiction-At Birth. Such violence in this one. ABUSE!!!!! You know, I’m surprised this hasn’t been an issue.

Colleen of SilverThreading-Astrological Grudges. Okay, haven’t even headed over yet and I’m scared. Hmm, interesting.

Louise of Fantasy Raconteur-Birth of a Star. Hmm, I could go weird and mention the Voice or America’s Got Talent, but I won’t. 😀 Muahahahahaha.

Janice of Ontheland has another one-Light bulb flash. Ha, okay so the haiku is the same as the title. Sort of. Funny!

Scott of The House of Bailey-Life and Death. He has a warning label on this one and promises to write more cheefuller next time.

OBA of The king’soracle-New birth cheers. Okay, so I was going to be funny then I read the second poem. Hrmph. She had to be all nice and stuff. Hrmph.

Srivi of The Piscean Me-Begin to End… Okay, gettin’ all philosophical like here.

Oneta of Sweet aroma-Let Her Soar. Monkey cheerleading? I guess it has to start somewhere.

Sri of Naa Prapancham-My World…-In a family. Two for two sides of the story.

Lizi of Quilted Poetry-Happy Croaking! Okay, it sounds the opposite of Birth, but it’s not.

Vashti of The Writer Next Door-Welcome. Interesting. Two images used here. Interesting.

Tolulope of Rubys Polaroid-Celebration. Cute picture with this one. So glad I’m human.

Tricia of A Creative State of  Mind-Robin’s Song. I so wish this was the song of Spring!!!!

39

Florence of Meanings And Musings-Seeking Joy. But does it really chase it? Hmm.

Melissa of The Aran Artisan-Three Cheers For Summer! I hope they aren’t bonfiring their vanities. Dear me.

Elise of Rawls E Fantasy-“War’s End” & “Trapped”. Two lovelies entered for last weeks challenge but I’m tossing them in here anyway.

Ronovan Writes’ Week #101 Haiku Review with Links.

Click the underlined, blue links to visit the haiku of each poet. All poets, please remember to visit the prompt throughout the week so you can visit those who enter later than you do. We all need each others support. You are missing some great haiku.

Ronovan Writes Haiku Review

Annette of Annette Rochelle Aben with a message many need to hear these days, and the days to come, titled Winds of Change.

Sandra “The Wild One” Daffodil with Native, do a twist on the prompt and winding up with a unique idea.

Ruth of Image & Word came up with Deadlock about a alternative to the present to get to the future.

FLOrida Borne of Two On A Rant. Okay so it’s really Floridaborne but I like calling her Flo and pronounce Borne as Bornay yes, I like being weird. She gives us How a Writing Frenzy Feels, with an original photograph that taken during extreme winds.

Jane of Jane Dougherty Writes, yes the author, gives us the Trifecta this week.

Xenia of Whippet Wisdom, yay another dog with blog who lets its owner post sometimes! Fresh Winds Whisper Peace and I believe it with a photo of dogs on a beach. Can’t beat that. Pulling out the puppy card always gets attention.

Srivi, The Piscean me, has Messy Hair! this week. And I do mean messy.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams ended up being Always with me this week. I love how she keeps me in her thoughts long after I’m gone. (Sigh.)

Alice the Boomerang Zone queen speaks straight from the headlines of the week with Orlando Massacre. Need I say more?

Judy, the published poetess of Edwina’s Episodes pipes in with Flying Forth. Yes, it’s a weird title for it but I made it up. That happens if  you don’t name ’em. 😛

Bill gives us Renewal. Not sure if I like the haiku or the description of what he was doing at the time of thinking of it better.

Ken from RIVRVLOGR came up with Fresh Wind. OOOoOOOooO all deep and romantical.

Mira who sometimes can be found To Wear A Rainbow wrote for us this week my lover… Another romantical one.

Ritu over at But I Smile Anyway apparently is sending a message that Wind seems to be Awakening her Hayfever. Don’t wonder about it, just click and read.

Willow of Willowdot21 says too much to be said in one title. Three haiku with some nice images to match.

Leara of LearaWrites enters the fray with Dragonfly At Dawn. Wouldn’t that make a great book title?

Clarence speaking through his PrairieChat gives us his Summer Dreams.

Marie from The Syllabub Sea and Fresh wind. And more romantics going on.

Colleen the Silver Threading Fairy Whisperer wrote Summer Awaits. Considering where she lives, the weather can’t make up its mind what it wants to do.

Mira on her They, You and Me blog with first rain going all nature on us.

TJParis gives us Prayers in the Wind on his la vie est trop courte  boire du mauvais vin blog. Um, you need to go and read the photo description for this one.

Jacqueline of A Cooking Pot and TwistedTales wrote Wind of life this week. Three tales with the same twisted theme.

Debra on her author blog D.B. Mauldin came up with a fantasy of fiction I wish were true. Oh the agony a Windward Dreams.

Shida the 876LoveR likes to frolic in the Summertime.

Janice, nature’s best friend over on Ontheland, wrote four haiku with the title of Fresh Winds.

Oneta of Sweet Aroma wrote Evening’s Peace. Man, I need this to happen. The big boy is dragging as he writes this. Been on the go the last couple of days. Summertime for me means less rest, more fatigue, and being cook and entertainment coordinator for my 11/12 year old son, B. Okay, so he entertains himself mostly but I hate him sitting alone so I stay with him and we do stuff.

OBA of The king’soracle gives us I broke the old cycle!

Maria at Doodles and Scribbles wrote Ildio, a haiku of inspiration and peace.

Melissa The Aran Artisan gives a cultural lesson with Native sean nós singing on Inise  Mor.

Lizi of Quilted Poetry and Springtime Songs, a nice take on the word wind.

Tolulope from Ruby’s Polaroid wrote Ocean Dreams. Just the name is good enough to be great and I haven’t even read the haiku at this point.

Denis visits from Haiku Hound. Charlie appeared to be enjoying the day more than Denis in this photo of their Windy Memory.

Khor from Project Prose wrote New beginnings, an inspiration for those needing a lift to their lives.

Clarence visits one more time from PrairieChat with Bellicose Boasts. So that’s why we get all those storms in the South that time of year. Hmm.

Scott writes Scents over on TheHouseOfBailey. Yeah, she let him out again. I like the two sentences here. One of somewhat peace if you think of it that way, and the other one instilling a bit of fear.

Tricia of A Creative State of Mind gives us Summer Song. Now, I have to say, some of these things in the image can drive me insane, but those made by a true musical ear can be very nice.

Sri of Naa Prapancham,My World… wrote Afresh. I like how so many people went with fresh outlooks on life. A very positive week.

Dependable R. Todd from A Flash of Fiction showed up with The Promise, with something that should bring some memories of you to many of us. It even gave me a little flash. Which if you know me, you know a flash of memory is a good thing to have. Thanks, dude.

Greg of Nagrij Writes the Hits You Never Knew Existed (Yes, that is the name of his blog.) gives us Oil Spill. So there went the positive outlook on life. 😀 Very descriptive in so few words. Worth the visit and read.

Vashti and The Writer Next Door. The writer that lives next me doesn’t look anything like Vashti. Thank goodness, or I would never end up writing. Anyway, this author writes What If Mother Nature Wanted A Fresh Start?

Florence from Meanings and Musings writes Climax. She has a refreshed view of life after a trip of destiny.

A Change for Now.

I guess some of you may have noticed I am everywhere lately. I have posts across other blogs promoting my book. I am here promoting my book but trying not to because I don’t want to seem like I am forcing it on anyone. Then I am trying to do my normal blogging.

To be honest, it’s taking its toll. I’m having to wear compression gloves now to type and wow are they taking a lot to get accustomed to typing with. I guess you realize if I am wearing the gloves then the hands have gotten worse.

I love writing. I love blogging. Lately, really for months now, I don’t blog. I host challenges and put out reviews, both of which I like.

The problem is . . . I never knew the Haiku Challenge would ever get as big as it has. Would any of you have thought it that’s been around the whole time?

For the time being, I’m going to change the Haiku Review to include the Authors, because I know every extra mention helps, and choose 10 other Entries to feature along with the blog names. I am working on a way to maybe include all the links of all the entries just not in the format we have now. I’m going to work on the easiest way I can get it done so as many people can benefit. This may be temporary.

Other than my hands and overall health issues, I also want to get back to being creative again.

I loved writing poetry for so long, but now I don’t get into that space long enough to write. It’s time I created the chances to write again. I’ll be sharing the next phase of that journey with you. Keep an eye out for excerpts of that Southern Romance I’ve been working on for so long.

Much Respect

Ronovan

AUTHOR CENTRAL

To view an author’s books on Amazon, click either the word Author in red, or the book image beside their name.

If an author does not have a comment, as do the entries, that means they did not have an entry this week, but I left their place here. Is it for the benefit of advertising their work? No, it is for the ease of my formatting their next entry in the challenge. It’s a bear to do those. (And maybe there is a little heart felt type thing I have for authors.)

Darkfire Pheonix:  White Flow | Pheonix Feathers and Dragon Eyes.  One of my favorite themes running this week. “This blog is my attempt to get myself back into the writing. I used write alot when I was younger but as life got more hectic and busy I stopped doing it however the ideas never stopped coming. In fact, they still are. I have set myself the challenge of writing at least one piece a week, be it a short story, drabble, poem or whatever and post here…[Click to Read More].”

Emma Major: Yum! | MS Calling (Thanks brain; I don’t think you’re funny!). Okay, the title I gave it should at least begin to give y’all some ideas of the subject. Best I can tell is she is a “Brit”, a Mum, and an MS Blogger, AND appears to be very involved and connected. AND has a cool name.

Elsie Hagley: Smooth Milk | Ramblings of a Writer. A smart message delivered. You have to think that how we got to exist in the first place. My name is Elsie Hagley, I have been on the internet for some time now and enjoy writing. Was writing lens at Squidoo for nearly four years until their closure September 2014. [Click for a lot of interesting stuff on her about page.] @KiwiNana

Srivi: Icing on the Cake | The Piscean Me. Nice first entry. Tasty! Love the image of the Haiku itself. Very well done. Ola! Hello! A very warm welcome to my blog 🙂 Why I am here: I am here mainly to express my thoughts and my views about any topic which I really feel needs to be shared. Something about me: To be honest mine is a very boring story. And it goes something like this: A workaholic software engineer from a decent engineering college whose … [Click and Read the Rest]!” @ThePisceanMe

Sri Sudha K: Venus ilk | Naa Prapancham, My World. The prompts she did rhyme, in order to be sublime. Also entered last week but on a participantes blog, Haiku title-Pretty gal. Please don’t mind to find these words in an alien language,they are of my mother tounge Telugu., I just love to write and converse in it.. What i said is…
I have been penning down for years now..
But, I just found a new way to store it all..
My blog is the way that entices all in this digital world..
this is me and my world…. [click to see a great family photo]”
Gotta love that sense of humor.

RonovanWrites 83rd #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry #Links

Comments are bit skimpy this week. With the book launch of today for Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling now live on Kindle as well as Paperback, I may be able to get back in the swing of things. But after only links last week I felt I needed to get back to a normal review this week. Not that I ever am normal in anything I do.

AUTHOR CENTRAL

To view an author’s books on Amazon, click either the word Author in red, or the book image beside their name.

If an author does not have a comment, as do the entries, that means they did not have an entry this week, but I left their place here. Is it for the benefit of advertising their work? No, it is for the ease of my formatting their next entry in the challenge. It’s a bear to do those. (And maybe there is a little heart felt type thing I have for authors.)

New Offenders!

Don Massenzio: Flawed | Don Massenzio’s Blog Independent Authors Unite!   The Haiku is in the comments, and his blog is the other link. Like my character, Frank Rozzani, I was born in Syracuse, New York to first generation Italian American parents. I’m an avid reader. Some of my favorite authors are Harlan Coben, David Morrell, Stephen King, Jonathan Kellerman, John Grisham, and Hugh Howey. My favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird.
I started writing as a way to combat the long hours of travel and numerous hotel stays that are part of the ‘glamorous’ world of corporate life. I use writing as a therapeutic outlet to combat my homesickness...[more on his author site].”
