RonovanWrites Week 26 Haiku Prompt Challenge Review

Haiku Prompt Challenge Badge WinterThe 26th Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge Review. And they said it wouldn’t last. I don’t know who they are but I am certain someone said it somewhere.

 

First to the finish line this week!

t_a_wyatt_authorTA Wyatt and Broken Mind. Visit Finale to an Entrance to read this Haiku that is almost about me or a once me. The Broken Mind is definitely me. Remember T.A. is another of our resident authors so check out books available at Amazon here. @FinaletoEntranc



 

Battered Wife seeking Better Life wrote Ready, Set Go. She wasn’t thrilled with it but I think it works. I do half of what she says but the other half not so much. @BWseekingBL

 

Crisisalive with Storm of Ideas. Oh how I feel this one. Well I use a laptop though.

 

Sue from Daily Echo. Bedlam. Just go check out this one. I SO LOVE THE IMAGE!!!! Joy! @SCVincent is one of our resident authors so check out books available at Amazon here. The Sword of Destiny in England looks cool and The Osiriad based in Egypt very awesome. And don’t get me started on that whole Doomsday series of books co-authored with Stuart France, who doesn’t like a series?

 

Elizabeth brought Emptiness from Tea&Paper. This definitely defines this first day of the first full week of the new year. @teandpaper

 

Serins of Serins Sphere wrote Chaos Bleeds for us this week. Hugh wants Photoshop tips and there is something about vampire fan fic in there. Both are evident in the piece this week. @SerinsSphere

 

Becca from On Dragonfly Wings with Buttercup Tea returns with Empty Bedlam. A good description of mental fatigue. @rgbickerstaff

 

Cyril of Cyril Bussiere: My Secret Bedlam. A Haiku that I feel at times. More than a few times. I wish we all could  have Freedom from these thoughts. Cyril, of course, is one of our resident authors, even having been interviewed before I created my LWI site. I will need to interview him again for his next book and have a real interview now that I have a few more under my belt. Check his work on Amazon here. @CyrilBussiere

 

Mira of To Wear a Rainbow: Soul . . . less. Somber but honest. Sad yet joyful depending on your side of the words and imagery. @BediMona

 

Claudette from To Search and to Find Happiness in Every Day brought us Mad House. A Haiku that I would put as the next chapter after Cyril’s if I were making a book out of these Haiku.

 

Meredith and Martha bringing their 2×2 from Meredith’s Musings. The ladies have created their own challenge where YOU must guess who wrote which Haiku. It’s more difficult than you think. @Meredithlbl

 

Faith Unlocked: Restored by Grace. Excellent message. Goes along with my Year of Renewal message. @FaithUnlocked

 

Carolyn of Reviews & Recommendations: Young Nest. Something you don’t think about but really is common these days.

 

Colleen of Silver Threading wrote My Vacant Heart. I believe Colleen had to stretch out for this one. Her with a vacant heart? @ColleenCheseboro

 

Marigold of Versus Bulb: Jellyfish Bedlam. A bit sad. I was thinking this was going another place but then was surprised. Marigold Deidre Dicer is one of the RW Haiku Challenge resident authors. Check out her work on Amazon here. @MarigoldDicer

 

AC Elliott has returned. Bedlam is on File Cabinet Ramblings. I mean the Haiku not actual chaos and stuff is occurring on his site. Well it might be. A definite writer’s mind wrote this. A writer’s mind with a writer’s problem. Check it out. @Elliott_ac

 

Florence of Rambling On rejoins with Creating Bedlam. I think we, well a lot of us might connect with this one. @FTThum

 

Maniparna from Scattered Thoughts wrote Memories. You walk in and things just come to you sometimes for good or ill they happen. They can bring happiness or sadness. A good one. @Maniparna

 

Melissa of This, Right Now with Bedlam. A true contrast here, not only in sentences but even in elemental meanings. Excellent.

 

Canaf over at Faithful Devotionals: Peace. An interesting way to do it and an excellent message.

 

Cindy of Dreams in Alaska. I’m still not telling you where she lives. She wrote Empty Illusions. I get it. I have bedlam, at least I think I do. @cindyburrill

 ronovan writes humor haiku badgethis week goes to:

Sue from Daily Echo. Bedlam. If you don’t know why, then you haven’t visited the Haiku yet. @SCVincent

A tie. That’s right. I simply am not going to agonize over this one. Two poems spoke to me on a personal level in different ways.

cyrilCyril of Cyril Bussiere: My Secret Bedlam. @CyrilBussiereAC_Elliott

AC Elliott has returned. Bedlam is on File Cabinet Ramblings. @Elliott_ac

My offering this week was a timely one titled Back to School. I am not often so much proud of a Haiku I do but I was very happy with this one for once.

And now for our closing Haiku for this week:

Though pens are empty,

May your minds be full of thoughts,

Lest fear bring bedlam.

As for Challenge #27 Prompt Words? You can always wait until tomorrow or find them hidden in this Review.

RonovanWrites Week 25 Haiku Poetry Challenge Review

Here we are with the 25th Haiku Poetry Challenge Review. 25 Weeks in a row. Hard to believe it but we’re still growing and enjoying. It would have been nice to reach 25 participants, just because the number would have matched. I have a thing about numbers at times. But the holidays do take their toll on the world of blogging.

With the idea of growing and enjoying you might notice a few changes with the Recap. I need to spend less time with computer related issues. Formatting is a big problem with my hands so things might be a little simpler for the time being. Well, at least as long as I can stand it. But as long as you keep writing, I’ll keep Recapping.

Haiku Prompt Challenge Badge WinterFirst to Write?

Patty of I’m Not Sick Boy gave us My Alex this week. Not only do we get a view of her world but we get to see a great picture of Her Alex.

 

Faith Unlocked wrote in with Old Wisdom. Wisdom is something to cherish. Some scoff at the old wisdom even when repackaging it as something new but so very skewed. This message keeps it real. And then a second Haiku with 25. I think this one is a personal favorite. I don’t know why I say that but perhaps you should go look and see. 🙂 @FaithUnlocked

 

Maniparna returns for her second week, and are we lucky or what. On her site Scattered Thoughts she wrote Year. I think you can get an idea of what her Haiku is about but how did she did it is the question. Go find out. It’s not quite what you think. @Maniparna

 

Sue is back as well! Love it when the Authors participate. You all know I have a weakness for them. From the  site Daily Echo this week we have Sowing. No, this has nothing do to with pigs. (I wait for some to ponder that one for a moment.) Or does it? You won’t know unless you go check it out. @SCVincent is one of our resident authors so check out books available at Amazon here. The Sword of Destiny in England looks cool and The Osiriad based in Egypt very awesome. And don’t get me started on that whole Doomsday series of books co-authored with Stuart France, who doesn’t like a series?

 

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper. I have to say I always enjoy seeing this lady give us an offering. She gives us The Dress this week. Hmm, she’s been in someone’s closet and I’m not saying whose. @teandpaper

 

Kimberly of K.S. Fause seems to have taken my enjoyment of History to a new level. Yes, I know it is a coincidence but I don’t believe in those. I think her studies and my likes happened together for this Haiku in a very wonderful way. Chains by @KSFause

 

T.A. Wyatt, the mystery. No that’s not the title of the poem from the Finale to an Entrance site. Just my observation of our mystery poet. No, Passing Time: A New Year Haiku is the offering this week.  Remember T.A. is another of our resident authors so check out books available at Amazon here. @FinaletoEntranc

 

Serins of Serins Sphere brings two Haiku this week to our 25th Anniversary. Optimistic sounding Haiku. While many have been reflecting on sadness of old it seems Serins is looking to the future. Go check her out. @SerinsSphere

 

KiwiBee of Snap Thoughts gives us From Goodbye to New. The prompt words were a bit obvious this week but I liked the contrast of the dimming aspects of the first ‘sentence’ formed and the sharpness of the second formed. One with a clarity and one with a foggy memory quality.

 

Colleen of Silver Threading throws out the old year and rings in the new with Expiration. A very good tone set with the words and image used. You need to go see it to know what I mean. @ColleenChesebro

 

Steve gave us Step Off from Simplicity Lane. Steve continues to bring originality to the words. Didn’t see this one coming. Remember that Steven Walsky is one of our authors and you can find his books on Barnes & Noble by clicking here and Smashwords here.

 

Cindy returns to us for her second week and yes, we are all happy! She wrote Unbound Hopes on Dreams in Alaska. Sometimes a title says it all. Well, it gives you an idea of the message. Go Read It Already! @cindyburrill

 

Meredith’s Musings and the Two Literary Angels of Meredith and Martha have their four for us this week. Meredith discontinued the guess who wrote which Haiku but it was fun while it lasted. Maybe if everyone asked her to start it again we could all guess after the busy holidays. @Meredithlbl

 

Marigold of Versus Blurb: A Reading and Writing Blog provided us with Tried  & True. Whoa. Almost a tongue twister but very much a twister of the mind. I didn’t say twisted mind. Just remember that. Be certain to check Marigold Deidre Dicer’s book The Black Swan Inheritance just released in Nov. and available at Amazon for Kindle here. @MarigoldDicer

 

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams showed up with Growing New Again.  One that we probably have all experienced. @MichelleLunato

 

Melissa of This, Right Now: Old Dog, new Tricks. Interesting. That’s what I’m saying, interesting.

 

Canaf from Faithful Devotions wrote New Creation. If only some would remember this message.

 

Battered Wife Seeking Better Life returns! And y’all have a lot to check out. She actually caught up with all of the ones she missed out on over the past view weeks with the madness of the world. Click here to go her Healing Haiku. Happy to have her back! @BWseekingBL

 

 

The Ronovan Write’s Choice selections for Week #25

For Humor this week I found that humor was not all that easy to find. But there was one that struck me as funny. And you must go see it.

Step Off by Author Steven Walsky.

Steven_S_Walskyronovan writes humor haiku badge

 

The Serious Haiku is always difficult to select. It often times depends on my mood because we have so many good serious Haiku.

Old Wisdom by Faith Unlocked. A message I think all should embrace. With a choice of a badge to use.

faithunlockedronovan-writes-serious-haiku-badgeserious haiku badge

 

 

 

 

My own offering this week was Peace to Old and New. And if you don’t mind for a moment, I will say I was proud of the drawing and the haiku I did this week. It was a very fun thing to do and I hope to do more like it. It inspires me to do a greeting card business, almost. But once it’s a job, then it is work and then the creativity goes out the window.

The closing Haiku for this weeks prompt:

My heart beats like new,

Although the pain is still here,

Old scars are fading.
