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!

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.

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.

VronLaCroix: Suckling Calf | Simply Snapshots. Sometimes you gotta wonder about calves. How many get the fool kicked out of them? Nice photography. By the way, I am the one that capitalizes her name that way. I may be wrong, but I like it.

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.

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].”

RonovanWrites 82nd #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry #Poet #Links

Well, you’ll notice the sad state of the Review this week. The reason? A father practicing a rousing game of catch before the upcoming baseball tryouts with his son. A very HARD thrown ball hitting of the glove reaching across the body … from that point onward, it is not certain if the ball went directly into my eye or hit a fence then went into my eye. However, reading is difficult and holding an ice-pack on the eye makes typing difficult. But two awesome things … 1) My son can throw one heck of a fast ball, and 2) All I yelled out was a yell and a Oh Gosh. I was quite proud of myself that my habit of no use of profanity in my language usage came through in that moment. My son was happy too, after he was assured I would survive.

If you haven’t voted about the Review format as of yet, please click HERE and do so.

I thank all of you again, for understanding that I normally save my comments for the review and not always on your blog post. I am attempting to work toward doing both, but I forget sometimes.

RonovanWrites 81st #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Review

Sorry for the confusion last week with the posting of the Challenge on Sunday for a few hours. Never blog with very little sleep. I went hunting for those who participated last week and I did not have a link for to check and some had participated and some I could not find an entry for. If you missed out because of the error, and would like to be included in this Review, post a Haiku and I’ll update the Review when I wake up. 🙂 As soon as I saw the post had gone out, I took it down to keep as little confusion out there as possible. Some figured out I had goofed. We still had over 60 responses, even with the foul up.

I wanted all those who participate, my friends and Haikumily, (I know Haikumily sound corny for Haiku family but that’s what it is around here in this growing community.) that as we grow, I know I have not been able to be as personable as I used to be, but don’t let that make you think I don’t appreciate all of your dedication to this thing Y’ALL have made such a huge thing. (For those who don’t speak Southernese, Y’all is Southern American for You All, or All of You.)

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!

NEWISH! Bill Engleson (Author): Trill Born. These three Haiku are in my comments. Last week there was also an offering by this writer, although at that time I Like a Child to Home by Bill Englesonreferred to him as Den because of his ‘call sign’ of denmaniacs4. Since then I’ve found out more about our mystery poster.  “Bill Engleson was active in the child welfare arena for more than 25 years, most of them as a front-line, journeyman, government protection social worker and a dedicated union activist. … Like a Child to Home is also very much  meant to be a means of paying tribute to the amazingly resilient  young people that he met along the way as well as to the hard working adults who shared that journey… [read more from his Bio].”



First to Offend this Week!

Good Haiku and an excellent thinky one.  Check out Annette’s books at the Author link above and her Radio Show at the Host link. @YouAreTheExpert

The Dark Citadel by Jane DoughertyJane Dougherty (Author): You say goodbye, I say hello. | Jane Dougherty Writes. A homage of a title to my favorite band ever.

Swan Mothers by Natalia ErehnahNatalia Erehnah (Author): Master’s Claim | Weaving Gold. An interesting one, and the image use as well. I’ve never been into those but like learning about those things. Kind of vague, ain’t I? Muahahaha @swanmothers

FANTASY

Colleen Chesebro: The Ultimate Battle | SilverThreading. Colleen shares a thought of what we might see in her book she’s working on and gives us a Haiku as well. @ColleenChesebro

Lizl & Melissa of Aran Artisan: Trees and Rainbows | Quilted Poetry. A back and forth exchange of Haiku between the two.

HUMOR

Judy: I so pretty. | Edwina’s Episodes. I am shaking my head as I type this. I’m speechless. @EdwinasEpisodes

Sandra: Winter | Wild Daffodil. Um, okay, is this NATURE, MOMENT, LIFE, or HUMOR. I think I’ll go with HUMOR this time, just for the fun of it. See what I did there? HUMOR … Fun … no? Pfft. (I’ve never typed Pfft before. Interesting.) You can find the list of this years photo challenges, from her and Melissa, on Daffy’s blog by clicking here. And information about the challenge in her post.

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha: Testy | A Cooking Pot and TwistedTales. Did she have to go there? I mean really, did she?

Return to Top

INSPIRATION

MUST READ 1000hoursleft (Mek): For Pho’s Sake | Work In Progress. This, so far in my doing the review, is my favorite overall read of a post. Mek used words to describe the experience of creating Pho in such a way you could feel, smell, and experience it yourself. I only wish I could taste it. Two Haiku mixed in with the post, added at just the right moments made this a complete post. I placed this in INSPIRATION because it inspires the desire to experience things like this.

Return to Top

LIFE

Alice: The Gift | Boomerang Zone. Ouch, be more careful next time. It’ll still be there at the end. Take your time. @Vidocq_CC

Lizl: Trusted Source | Quilted Poetry. Lizl went slangy this week … and it works. Check it out and see how she used Trill as slang.

Ritu: The Match-A Tanka | But I Smile Anyway. I am sure she watches because she likes the sport. Mhmm. Has nothing to do with the shorts. Mhmm. @PhantomGiggler

Clarence: My Erroneous Trill | PrairieChat. For someone who misread the prompt at first … he made up for it with 5 Haiku.

Greg: Her Voice | Potholes in the Road of Life. It ain’t puccinie or pavoratii but there you have it. (And Yes, I  know I didn’t spell them correctly. What’s the fun in being right ALL the time?) @greg_wolford

Meredith & Martha: Opera by Meredith and Peace by Martha | Meredith’s Reveries. I don’t understand why Meredith gave us the one Haiku this week. Oh sure, Martha ran off and left her alone for the sunny environs of the wayward South, but still. Oh, and Meredith, I could have sent you my CPAP machine. @Meredithlbl

Mira: final call | To Wear a Rainbow. And the scene fades. @BediMona

Elusive: The Saxophonist | Elusive Trope. Play that funky music white boy. Actually this one deserves a more serious comment than that. Using trill in this way was inspired and also telling of personal enjoyments. Haiku can be very telling about the writer.

OBA: Dreamland Vibes | The king’s oracle. A bit of a nice rhythm to this one as you read it. @obapathway

Diedre Blake: Sonatas | Toward the Within … Let’s get musical, musical. Let’s get musical.

Mahitha Kasireddi: Charged Thunders | MagyKars. Hmm, a moment of life, a big moment I think.   

Ruby Manchada: Wafting Rhymes | Whispering Thoughts. I think someone feels like dancing, dancing the night away.

Jen (JK): Higher | The Secret Keeper. The musicality rises and raises.  @occultguardian

Prakash: Lesson | It’s PH. Learn something new every day. @ItsPhTweet

Neel Anil Panicker: Shrill Till | NeelWritesBlog. I think someone likes rhyming.

LITERATURE

MOMENTS

MUST READ Pancake Bunnykins: Last Breath | A Real Messy Beautiful Twisted Sunshine.  I’m putting this in MOMENTS, but it could easily be in LIFE, or NATURE. The word choice and writing allows for such a wide interpretation. Only the image used leads me to be specific in the placement. For those visiting this blog, the like button is to the left of the top image. A little different than the usual theme’s we visit.

Marie: Empty Playground | The Syllabub Sea. I missed typing the letter l in ‘playground’ the first time through, not sure if that is telling of something or not. This one gives me a sad feeling of a devoted teacher’s thoughts. Maybe that says something about me. I get that hollow sad feeling when I think about having once been a teacher but unable to remember.

Olga:  Memories of Childhood | Stuff and what if. See the thrilling transformation of this trilling product of a nun. Say what?

jazzytower (PR): Fun Endings | Thoughts and Entanglements. A bit of a, um, play on words for the title there from me but I like it. A good memory shared. Well nice to have it shared.

R. Todd: Taps… | A Flash of Fiction. Very nice. Not much more you want to say really. Make certain to scroll down to click like or you’ll miss the second one. @psibrone

Nato: Trill of Love | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. She is such a romantic. @MichelleLunato
Return to Top

NATURE

Kat: On the Wing | like mercury colliding. At first glance of the title I was concerned this might be a recipe. Then of course I read the actual Haiku itself and the interesting fact that went along with it. @kat_myrman

TJ Paris: Sunset |La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. A feasty boy writes as poem, and his ships come sailing after him. Or is that chips? And what’s that about a prawny tiger? Aussie people have some strange anjimals. Then there was a pelican too? @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Ken G.: Spring’s Herald | RIVRVLOGR. Very nice Haiku and enjoyed the selection of image here. I’m wondering about that one fellow at the top though.

MUST VISIT & SEE Denis: Trilling Seagulls | HaikuHound. Guys, you MUST go and see this. The photography here of Australia at sunset is AWESOME!!! I always love Denis’ photos of his pet and all the birds he comes upon, but the birds are secondary in these. Makes you want to get up and make a trip.

Janice: Evening tweets | Ontheland. I like the tongue in cheek of that title. But the two Haiku are even better. And where else but NATURE would you find Janice? @ontheland1

Kim M. Russell: Evensong | Writing in North Northfolk. You have to like those Haiku that can be read as one sentence or two separate ones. @kim88110

Cathy: Winter Haiku | Rambling in the Garden. I climatic telling of the UK Midlands. It’s nice to see similarities between nations and people in things as simple as the weather. This matches what happened here this past weekend, much to the displeasure of my son.

Al: Sunset  | A Certain Point of View. Interpret this one how you may. How many ways can you? Will you go with the straight forward obvious, or obvious to most, or will you think outside the box? @AlistairLane

MUST READ JustMaria: Earth’s Cry | Doodles and Scribbles. (Why do I use JustMaria? Because we have other women named Maria in the challenge AND I first met Maria as JustMaria. Although there is nothing JUST about her.) When I saw the title in the link, the first thing I thought of was how when the earth begins to tremble for whatever reason, earthquake or some other cataclysmic event, birds let out a call of warning, alarm. They are like the cry of the earth to let other living things know something is happening. Maria came up with another idea and a lot more poetic too.  @ciisalveni

Roz Hill: Hardened Harmony | Small Spaces and the good life with Roz and Phil Hill. After some snowl searching, (It’s an inside joke, inside of me that is.) we have a nice Haiku with a photo that would be good for using in a story. That’s one reason you check out blogs, for reference material.

Janice: Canaries in the Coal Mine | Ontheland. I knew, of course, what this one would be about as soon as I saw the title. Then I read the rest of the post. The post itself had to do with the Writer’s Quote Wednesday hosted by Colleen of SilverThreading.com and the #BeWoW (Be Writing on Wednesday/Be Wonderful on Wednesday) event hosted by me. A good read. @ontheland1

Crow: Poem 20160128 (Forward Thinking) | Caw!.  As always the words are my title contribution. A programmer but I wonder if there is a gardener inside this one. @Crow

Melissa: Snowdrops/Winter Sky. | The Aran Artisan. Some of you may know what her titles mean, and some of you will be completely wrong. Melissa and one of our other Haikumily members, Sandra the Daffy one, helped compile this years list of ‘photo word of the week‘ challenge. @TheAranArtisan

Mira: Free | They, You and Me. Awww, she went NATURE on us. Very nice. Peaceful @BediMona

Lisa Greenbow: Gardens and Haiku | Greenbow. Nice Haiku with nice photography from the other half.

Becky: The Hills are Alive with the … | Becky G? Oh, That’s Me! When you read this one, you know you’ll finish that title.

VronLaCroix: Fence near an Oak | Simply Snapshots. The cool thing about this is what the fence is made of. Here, in America, you would rarely find this. Rarely, I said. I did not say not at all.
Return to Top

STORYTELLING

Simple Girl: Magic | PERFERVIDDREAMS. 3 selections creating a story of magic.

Wesley Hollifield: Broken/Trust | NearlyWes. Well done story even with a not so happy plot. I think my prompt word led to some rhyme to it and thus sent some in some interesting directions.

Sarina Jolly Roger | Shining Seeds I thought this title fit considering her mention of it in more than Haiku only. A story almost of pirate lore.  @shiningseeds

Thinky

Tolulope Sanusi: An Exception | Ruby’s Polaroid. This being a THINKY piece, you’ll have to think about it. @rubyr8_soul

RonovanWrites 80th #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Review

Some sites do not have their handle showing in their Twitter share option on their posts. I have to put in the handle from knowing they have one when I share the post on Twitter. How to get your Twitter Handle to show when people Share your blog articles.

If you do not see your Haiku listed below, make certain the ping back or your comment with the link is in the comments of the Challenge Post. This year I won’t be checking for those who may have missed notifying the Challenge Post, in some way, of participation. Unfortunately it takes way too long to complete the review in that manner. My apologies if that offends anyone.

Thank you for so many checking their ping backs.

New Offenders!

NEW! Simple Girl: Memories | PERFERVIDDREAMS. Three Haiku with different imagery but with the same result. If you get what I mean.  Read the following and you see where I got her name from. I am a simple girl lost in her thoughts trying to keep a track of those…chasing some dreams and hopeful to achieve them..someone who wants to fly like  a free bird and discover the skies..!!I love to read and write both..For me a day spent reading and writing is not just a day passed but a day Lived well…After reading something you are wiser than you were before you started to read…And so the scope to learn is infinity and beyond. Through this blog, I just want to put my thoughts (howsoever strange or common or ghostly or pleasing), express my emotions into [click to read the rest].”

NEW! Mahitha Kasireddi: Trail of Questions | MagyKars. A thinky first entry. “Trying hard to fight my fears and depression. The only way I know to vent out my madness is writing poetry and prose… I’ll keep you posted !”  

NEW! Cathy: Vintage Knots | Rambling in the Garden. Very nice first entry. Stuck to her theme, and she participates in the Weekly Photography Challenge with Daffy and Melissa. I really liked the photo used for the Vintage challenge. “I had not intended to write a blog, but was talking to a friend about how, now I had more time,  I wanted amongst other things to keep a better record of the garden and nurture its spiritual aspects, as well as writing poetry more often. She suggested I…[read the rest of the story].”

NEW! Neel Anil Panicker: Armed and Fragrant! | NeelWritesBlog. So I came up with the title of the Haiku. I thought it a humorous take on the poetry provided. Go check out the poem and this BRAND NEW BLOG based on writing!

NEW! Lisa Greenbow: Gardens and Haiku | Greenbow. Evergreen and white. Lisa found us through one of our other New Offenders, Cathy. Lisa is one of our BlogSpot.Com members.

Judy: Seriously Fresh. | Edwina’s Episodes. I know, I know, it says Seriously in the title, but even though she says she went a little more serious this week, I think you will all agree this belongs in the humor section. @EdwinasEpisodes

Charly Priest The Beauty Fish | Crazy Life. Um, erm, (that’s me trying to keep my lunch from paying a visit) a Haiku with humor, imagery, and a great use of not only the prompt words but another as well. Down here in the South we have something called Hushpuppies that we eat with Fish.

LIFE

Juliette: Flashback | BWseekingBL. An assault on the senses with fonts and focus, but it works for the purpose. @BWseekingBL

Nato: Desire of a Stale Heart | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. Nato gives a story with a series of linked Haiku. I almost created a new category of WISDOM but then I would have one more decision in this old brain to sort through. @MichelleLunato

Clarence: Je Ne Sais Quoi | PrarieChat. For a moment I thought I was on TJ Paris’ blog. Okay, Clarence, too much thinky for me here. Grrr. Muahahahaha.

Alice: Trial Strategies | Boomerang Zone. Perry Mason tactics. @Vidocq_CC

Willow: Country Fresh | Willowdot21. This is one of those that leads you off on a search.  You can click HERE after you read the Haiku.

OBA: My Retro-Africanness | The king’s oracle.  Humor, style, life, and a nice turn of phrase. @obapathway

Ritu: Clothes Horse/The Freshest of Them All | But I Smile Anyway. Slave to trends and stuck in the past. @PhantomGiggler

Kat: Mukluks and Parkas | like mercury colliding. Social commentary and weather reports. @kat_myrman

Meredith & Martha: Attraction Meredith and Change/New Year’s Day by Martha | Meredith’s Reveries. Um, infatuation, decorating, and a gang are on the plate this week. @Meredithlbl

Janice: Hyperloop | Ontheland. We challenge, we write, we read, we learn. Go read and learn. @ontheland1

Ared (anghulinghugotero): Politics | ANGHULINGHUGOTERO. Around the world it’s all the same.

Mira: fearless | To Wear a Rainbow. Reasons for romance. @BediMona

Sandra: Vintage | Wild Daffodil. The Haiku prompt matched up perfectly with our PhotoChallenge ladies’ prompt word this week. Love the textiles she shared. You can find the list of this years photo challenges on Daffy’s blog by clicking here.

Oneta Hayes: Bittersweet | Sweet aroma. Oh how this one is so true. Things going and coming and going and coming and you moving along and watching it all happen.

Clarence: Lunch Time! | PrarieChat. A lot more to this one than you might first think of. Keep reading it and going over that last line. There is a story there.

jazzytower (PR): ReNew The View of The Old to You | Thoughts and Entanglements. So I got started with that title and couldn’t stop. Sue me. I mean as in Vincent, not like the legal way.

Terri: Fresh Style | The BeeSpeak. Making classics work. It took me a moment to recognize the image, but then I went way back to my childhood. We had some of these from a tree in the middle of a field that were as large as your head. 

Pancake Bunnykins: Bread and Coffee | A Real Messy Beautiful Twisted Sunshine.  Shopping list? No, she’s trying to make us hungry. Evil she is. For those visiting this blog, the like button is to the left of the top image. A little different than the usual theme’s we visit.

JustMaria: Cup of Warmth| Doodles and Scribbles. She’s one tracked minded for this one.  @ciisalveni

Suzanne Miller: Into the New | Art and Life. Going her own way. Funky, fly, and fresh.

Greg: Rebel with a Cause | Potholes in the Road of Life. Greg has a cause, I’m just not sure his Haiku does. Two this week and I think his illness tainted mind may have warped a bit. He DOES give a warning before reading them. @greg_wolford

Jen (JK): Perfect Domain | The Secret Keeper. Someone trying to make us drool with that image.  @occultguardian

Ruby Manchada: Transients wither | Whispering Thoughts.  Hmm, this one is going to make you think. So much so that I’m still thinking.

Khor Hui Min: Unsustainable | Project Prose. Consumerism and obsolescence? My heard hurts. Yes, I read the entire post and not just the Haiku. @MinKhor

Florence: Phoenix Risen. | Meanings And Musings. Live in art. Words over wounds. @FTThum

Becky: Bundle Up Buttercup | Becky G? Oh, That’s Me! Style with sense this week.

LITERATURE

Kim M. Russell: Writing Haiku | Writing in North Northfolk. Her title tells what the Haiku is about and a nice image to go with it of the man himself. @kim88110

MOMENTS

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha: Inhale | A Cooking Pot and TwistedTales. Two Haiku with style and flare, one of memories the other of fragrant hair.

Teresa Smeigh: Styling Fresh | Always A Writer. Cool Haiku and photo. @TeresaSmeigh

1000hoursleft (Mek): Assembling Dreams | Work In Progress. Okay, this is so well done you all MUST go read it.

Geetha Balvannanathan: A form of chaos. | Geetha Bavannanathan’s Blog. Haiku and more, as always, from Geetha. @geethap2007

Lady Joyful:  Sishevelled | The Joyful Soul Creates.  Mess happens, ever after.

Melissa: Vintage Vogue. | The Aran Artisan. Grandparents Vogue before Vogue was cool? Melissa and one of our other Haikumily members, Sandra the Daffy one, helped compile this years list of ‘photo word of the week‘ challenge. You have the words ahead of time and can plan ahead and have weeks of blog posts ready and set to go. She and Daffy like to combine the photo and the Haiku challenges into one. That spreads the post around to people with different interests. I believe at least 3 of our members participate now. @TheAranArtisan

NATURE

TJ Paris: The latest in fashion |La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. I almost reblogged this one just to have that photo on my blog. @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Elusive: Opaque | Elusive Trope. Very nice. Great photo and Haiku combination. The color of the subject of the photo is amazing.

Ken G.: Fresh Air | RIVRVLOGR. Can’t be it.

Crow: Poem 20160118b (Glorious Gardening) | Caw!.  My title addition might give this one away. Very nice use of the words without seeming to stretch to do it. @Crow

Andre Jayaprana: Somewhere near the Kitchen | andrejayaprana. I like to call this one Mother-in-law. Might be some humor there. Muahahahah.

Roz Hill: Standing up to Time | Small Spaces and the good life with Roz and Phil Hill. No matter the weather, some things keep lasting..

Lizl: Sunlight Fresh | Quilted Poetry. Hmm, a lot of imagery here. I can see a few different ways of interpreting.

Colleen Chesebro: The Lacemaker | SilverThreading. Look close at the image and you’ll see the subject of her Haiku. @ColleenChesebro

Denis: Styled Up | HaikuHound. Great photography of some Crested Pigeons. This is one of the great things about Denis’ blog, he brings a great deal of the animal kingdom from Australia into other parts of the world, especially birds. I’ve seen different types of pigeons at the bird feeders outside my window but we don’t have this type here, at least I haven’t seen them.

Storytelling

Wesley Hollifield: Let Me Stay Awake | NearlyWes. Doing the Freku dance. I like the way both parts were named but with an overall title included.
