RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge Review 54

If you do not see your name below and you did write a Haiku for the challenge, please leave a comment and I will add you to the Review. I may have missed the link in the comments section of the Challenge. I did visit the sites of those who participated last week but may have missed a post.  Thank you for your participation.

If you see Roundup in the Title, that means I just couldn’t do comments this week for everyone due to health issues. Review means comments.

Week #54 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Free & Think.

Be aware all links and images if clicked will open in a new window. Links are in blue and usually underlined. I believe they look cleaner and nicer this way rather than having a URL showing on the page.

New This Week

Pat B of A season and a time: Some of my current interests besides my family, church, and family history include the following:  browsing thrift shops and antique stores, trying out new recipes as well as coming up with a few of my own, playing the piano, learning about my DNA and my health traits, and doing research on various topics.”~Just a taste of her About Page. The Haiku: The Parent Plunge. My name for her Haiku and one that doesn’t even come close to giving away what the Haiku is about. The photos she used to go along with the Haiku are her own and I have to say WOW. Am I so envious she had this experience.

 



First to Enter this Week:

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Temple. Very much like his photography. Not sure where it is that he’s not supposed to be in. Maybe that’s why he doesn’t mention it. 🙂 He also has his own type of Haiku Challenge.



Annette Rochelle Aben: Mind Your Own. That’s my choice for title of the Haiku and I think it fits. Once you read it I think you might too. First, she’s a published author, and you can visit her Amazon Author page here. One of those books has included as one of the 25 Global Voices of Social Media. She has numerous shows through The Magic Happens radio network, there is The Magic Happens Radio, then Tell Me A Story which is a weekly program. That link will take you to my interview with her. Then she has a daily show as well, PerspectivepowerAnd remember her being a writer for the online magazine The Magic Happens-Humanity Thriving Out Loud. Check out her inclusion in the new just realeased anthology; Indies Unlimited’s 2014 Flash Fiction Anthology here.

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Only…Love… Nice message to the opinionated. And The cage. Hmm. Interesting. Maybe someone liked the house?  @BediMona

Judy of Edwina’s Episodes: Free to be WhatEvEr. Hmm. Sometimes it’s best not to comment. Not that I would say anything bad, but it might come across wrong. Once you read it you’ll see what I mean.

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Free. I think of the title The Lie when I read this one. Looking at the photo with the boundaries in the distance give visuals to the words. Very nice. Sue is one of our resident authors with a LOT of books on Amazon. Click here to check them out. @SCVincent  But Check out her NEW BOOK. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Hugh Roberts of Hugh’s Views & News: Sauce Junkie. Um, you have to read it to get it. 🙂 And yes, I did come up with the title. Hugh is also a member of the Lit World Interviews team. You may read his contributions by clicking here.  

Prakash of Its PH: Clenched in Hyberabad. The other title I thought of was Disturbing. Sometimes I worry about where our friend’s mind goes.

Al of Al the Author: Three Thoughts of Free. Um, yeah, three Haiku about like you know, thoughts, thinking, and free. Some about like being staged, caged or maybe enraged. Not really sure.

Clarence Holm of PrairieChat: Fiscal Expediency. Ew. Just ew. 🙂  And a second one that is not Ew at all, Minnesota Morning.

Olga of Stuff and what if…Miracles. I have several reasons for the title choice. But one is the idea of last two words in that second line. I wonder how often people feel they really can be that. A whole society like that would be a Miracle.

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Disappointed. So many interpretations for this one. From the silly to serious.

Eloise of Thoughts by Mell0-Elo: Breaking Boundaries. I think this is somewhat of a Haibun in that there is a short message following it. Short but important. She’s branching out. Prose + Haiku = Haibun. 🙂 Eloise is also one of our Authors. You visit Amazon.com here or Amazon UK here to check out her offerings for both children and adults.

OnTheLand: Our Struggle With Nature. Three for one with a singular message.

Suzanne Miller of Art and Life: Thinking with the heart. Whoa, talk about an informative post. Not just a Haiku here. Read and enjoy.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  I’m Free. She went Tanka on us this week. 🙂 A very good poem and I get the actual feel of it that she is relaying. And the message is true for us all if we want to follow it.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams: Soulmate. A sometimes scary use of the word think. 🙂 Visit Michelle Lunato Photography as well. @MichelleLunato

Jennifer of The Secret Keeper: A Free Wind and Pure Imagination. a very ethereal feel to both Haiku this week.

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: Living Free? Wish I could afford the cost of the Haiku. 🙂

Meredith & Martha of Meredith’s Musings Free Thinker and Breakup by Meredith & Freedom and Butterfly by Martha. I think Freedom is really a visual of what Martha is. 🙂

AC Elliott of File Cabinet Ramblings: Corporate Objectives. There is a certain freedom in this but then not. Very good opposing ideas in one. Really like the thinking here. @Elliott_ac

Johnoii of johnorzehowski: Limitation. Very interesting nature Haiku. Something to think about.

clickerwriter of Captured by Aishwarya: The end Spring cleaning maybe? Yard sale? Hmm.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Anxiety and Pet Hugs. Seriousness from our resident Humorist. Definite MUST READ on that Pet Hugs and the reason behind it.

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: A crazu ideological teenager who still thinks that clear, free, rational thinking can save the world. Not my title. 🙂

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: A mountain gives forth. A Haibun by Steven. Another one of those jealous moments for me.  Check out and get Simplicity Lane free, go here for where you can get it.  Through a Stranger’s Eyes here and Résumé for Love for free here.

R. Todd of R. Todd Writes: Freedom…. It comes with a price.

ladyleemanilla of Lady Lee Manilla’s Photos:  Our Oyster?. What is our oyster? Go find out. 

Juliet of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Reflections. I think the message in this one will hit a lot of people close to home. @BWseekingBL

Serins of Serins Sphere: The unforgiven. A Haiku and a Tanka. Some may recognize that title. Even if you don’t go check it out. @SerinsSphere

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Seek Your Freedom. A Tanka this week. One most of us can identify with. Florence is also a member of the Lit World Interviews Team. Read her posts here. @FTThum

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: I Think. A Haibun. I think this one can be as he intends or for me I think it gives thoughts of maybe my own earlier years. @greg_wolford 

Swatiu of imgrowing: Unfettered. Considering the prompt words, I think the title says it all. But what all does it say?

Vashti Quiroz-Vega of The Writer Next Door: Po-Po.. She got them right this week. 🙂 And I think she’s gotten a pass or two in her life. And no, not that kind of pass. Geesh you gutter minded people you. o,O Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Marigold of Versus Blurb: Thought Security. Yeah, I have no idea where I came up with the title either. I mean, I just sort of at this point in the review am lucky to be able to even think myself. Okay so I know where I came up with it, but you have to go see why. Go purchase Marigold Deidre Dicer’s book The Black Swan Inheritance from Smashwords, Kobo, Barnes and Noble or the iBooks store or purchase it from Amazon on Kindle by clicking here. @MarigoldDicer

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordAn Obedient Feminist. I in no way came up with this title. A very interesting read. @girally

Elusive Trope of Musings of a Photogenic Memory: Freeway Moment. I instantly got that Friday rush-hour-stuck-on-top-of-spaghetti-junction-in-Atlanta-with-no-air-in-summer feeling.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: My Head in the Clouds and I Think. I think there will be no cloud visits unless you stay free and clear of that second one. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Shailzaa of Fewunsaidwords Ego Destroyers. That last sentence kind of made me think a bit.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Delusion. Definite true message.

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: True Freedom. A freedom that is less and less apparent these days. Awesome image!

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Memories. Somewhat romanticalish. 🙂 I made up a word.

Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes: Utopia. Love the peacefulness of these two. She is a published author after all. And I have interviewed her and reviewed one of her books. Visit her Amazon Author page for her books by clicking here. You can read my interview with her and her co-author here which has a link to my review.

My Haiku: The greatest opportunity.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Anxiety and Pet Hugs. Seriousness from our resident Humorist.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega of The Writer Next Door: Po-Po. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

And the Closing Haiku:

Free from all complaints

I think of  problems.

Much Love, Much Success, and Much Respect,

New This Week

Elusive Trope of Musings of a Photogenic Memory: Gotta like that title. “I use what I call my “stage name” Elusive Trope in many of my presences on the web. In the past I have hid behind my stage name as a way to keep secret my real identity. I did, in part, because the non-profit for which I worked was apolitical and what I blogged and commented upon was usually political in nature. I slowly started to come out of the virtual closet and now I am just going to come entirely out of the closet.”~From the About Page of the Elusive Trope. Bet you want to know the real identity, right? Well go find out. Muhahahahaha. The Haiku: Tribulation. I think the Elusive one and I have some things in common. Check out the About page. Even though we don’t share all the same things we end up with some same results.

Shailzaa of Fewunsaidwords: No About Information but this is an awesome Gravatar photo! I’m getting dizzy just looking at it.

If you do not see your name below and you did write a Haiku for the challenge, please leave a comment and I will add you to the Review. I may have missed the link in the comments section of the Challenge. Thank you for your participation.

The image is a painting done in Photoshop, well pixlr.com. I used Meredith’s photo from her blog as the inspiration. The smudge tool makes for a great way to give that painted, brush stroke look.

Week #52 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Silent & Loud.

Be aware all links and images if clicked will open in a new window. Links are in blue and usually underlined. I believe they look cleaner and nicer this way rather than having a URL showing on the page.

New This Week

OnTheLand: “Hello! I started this blog when I moved to the country, off a dirt road, in the middle of nowhere, near Kingston, Ontario, Canada.  I was excited to live in nature ‘on the land’, my dream since childhood.  I was also happy to finally have a patch of land where I could try growing vegetables and herbs- -perfect for a vegetarian and natural foods enthusiast!” From her About Page. Much more there and her sidebar. Very informative and nicely done. The Haiku: Dawn. Excellent. Very nature grounded Haiku. Good structure. And put in a nice plug for the challenge. First Haiku since grade school. YAY!!!  

R. Todd of R. Todd Writes: “I love science fiction and fantasy. I also enjoy writing poetry. A lot of what you will find here will fall into one of those three categories. I leave my real life stuff over on that other site I mentioned earlier.” From his About Page. Much more there and entertaining. The Haiku: Trapped. Hmm, a theme this week it seems. One I could have written about as well.

Sky Vani of Stain: There is something familiar about this blog but I am putting her as a new one just in case. But seriously. Very familiar, but what does the amnesiac know, right? “Let’s make it clear at the beginning, I’m not philosopher nor poet. In fact, I am nothing special, just an ordinary … With an ordinary life … But hey, sometimes I like to dive my head in the pillow and dream away. Sometimes I just go to a nicer time in the past. Sometimes, if I gather courage, I step into a better future. However, I mostly just close my eyes and watch. I look a little at myself, or imagine people around a little. And that’s it …” From her About the Author Page. The Haiku: After the midnight. Hmm. Several meanings here. I like the profile photo used. A bit artistic. 🙂  

Mark Schutter of Maleko’s Art: “I never thought I would be this old & have my life just begin! Life is an adventure & the present is the moment that touches eternity.”~From his Side bar. More there to find out. The Haiku: A Rhyming Scheme. You’ll have to read it and you’ll get where I got the name from. 🙂 



First to Enter this Week:

Annette Rochelle Aben: Silence Rings First, she’s a published author, and you can visit her Amazon Author page here. One of those books has included as one of the 25 Global Voices of Social Media.

Check out her inclusion in the new just realeased anthology; Indies Unlimited’s 2014 Flash Fiction Anthology here.



Florence of Meanings and Musings: Inner Thoughts. I like the alternate word for silent. If I had done a Haiku other than the example it would have included this word. Florence is also a member of the Lit World Interviews Team. Read her posts here. @FTThum

Angie Lin of Muddied Thoughts: Demanding. Mhmm. Yep.

Clarence Holm of PrairieChat: Closing Time. Um, I wonder if this was a personal experience? Hmm.

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Train Traveller’s Blues. She’s trippin’.

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Haiku. I might have named this one Forlorn. And a second one, Tiny things of exquisite beauty. Oooooo read about this traitorous man. France loves him no more. But a cool story of his life. 

Olga of Stuff and what if…The Senses. I felt that the senses were represented in each line and thus the title I chose. Makes sense to me. 🙂

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  Turmoil. I think word has always meant an internal force to me.

Ms. Toy Whisperer of Ms. Toy Whisperer: Frances. Looking at the prompt words used in essence here. I do believe I get it.

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Silence. Peace is a good description of this one. Sue is one of our resident authors with a LOT of books on Amazon. Click here to check them out. @SCVincent  But Check out her NEW BOOK. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Close. Vintage ashes would be another good title for this one. Combined with the photo challenge hosted on Blue Daisyz. She also has an Etsy Shop here.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Washing Machine Woes and Dive Bombing Bird. The woman has some serious house issues.

Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes: Two this week I think I will call  The Void. She is a published author after all. And I have interviewed her and reviewed one of her books. Visit her Amazon Author page for her books by clicking here. You can read my interview with her and her co-author here which has a link to my review.

Jennifer of The Secret Keeper: Out Loud and Silent Blue. Okay, that first one with the image. 🙂 People should have that as their screen saver and start sharing it everywhere.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams: Silent Words, Screaming Actions. ooooooooo That’s all I can say. 00000000 Visit Michelle Lunato Photography as well. @MichelleLunato

Johnoii of johnorzehowski: Stoicism. A tree? Loud dirt? Whu? Nah, I get it and I also get the follow up message. 🙂 It just happens that way.

Al of Al the Author: A rarity. Only one this week? I feel as though I have let him down. I must come up with better words. Hrmph.

Meredith and Martha The Poetic Angels of Meredith’s Musings: Four Haiku, two from each as usual but in one post this week. Chose Wisely and Silence by Merdith & Over and Hurt by Martha. Great as usual. Martha brought her A game this week. Some very nice lines.

Wendy Anne Darling of Silver Lightning: Screaming. I think we all have some mental problems. But it’s taken me until now to realize it. Not that Wendy is mental or anything. Nooooo.  Remember Wendy is one of our Authors. Get Silver Lightning Volume One at Amazon by clicking here. And for you authors needing someone to do Audio Books, she has several out now. See the titles here.

jazzytower of Thoughts and Entanglements: Yearnings. 🙂 Pretty. 🙂

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Mischievous Mayhem. Mothers go and read. And read the comments as well. 🙂  Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Busy Week. I think the title is a bit of an understatement. @greg_wolford 

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: The LoveR has arrived.  Sugar coated. Um, well several interpretations of this one could roll through the mind. I shall remain silent despite the loudness of my thoughts. o,O

Sarah of tuckedintoacorner: Volume  Okay, so four Haiku telling a story. Volume by number and by sound? 🙂 Interesting.

Serins of Serins Sphere: Lamentations. She did a bit of playing with words this week. You might want to check it out. @SerinsSphere

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Noises. A very honest message. Very much so in this day and age.

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: Silence Please. Another one with multiple possibilities. I’m choosing the pure nature one. Also the image is awesome. MUST READ & SEE!

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Give A Hug/Unnoticed. Unnoticed is one we can all identify with. Give A Hug? Well I hope no one can identify with that one. :) Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Swatiu of imgrowing: Hello. Wow. MUST READ

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge Review 51

First, you can still submit your entry to the challenge and have it added to the Review.

Today the reviews do not have any comments. I’m testing the different format to see how it goes. It was easier somewhat but still took four efforts to complete. But I see that as a blessing for what this challenge has become.

As for the image below. Now you know what was inside of the wrapped up almost flower bud looking image last week.

Aimer Boyz of AimerBoyz: “I like dessert better than real food. I like fiction and happy endings and ice cream. I have no interest in sports, none.

All cars should be convertibles and groceries should buy themselves!”~From the About Page. The Haiku: To Be Me. Aimer is also an author with the first book being GoodReads M/M Romance Member’s Choice Award  Nominee 2014 Best Book Debut for Fireworks. Our very own Hugh Roberts gave it a 5 Star review.

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge Review 50

First, you can still submit your entry to the challenge and have it added to the Review.

Second, for future reviews, as the number of poets are increasing and my functioning hours are decreasing due to health, I am allergic to heat and it’s exacerbating my other conditions and it’s been 100 degrees here lately and no air in my room, that’s what you get for living in a house that was a school house a hundred years ago, the reviews may be minus my comments. I think the comments may actually take away from people being able to get to all of the Haiku anyway, but I know some people enjoy it when I am in a good enough way to have fun with them. Yes, I get goofy sometimes. 🙂

My likes:- quiet times – people with cool heads – travel -sewing gardening – jazz – reggae music – the sounds of the ocean – the sound of a hard steady rain on a tin roof, and most of all I like putting my thoughts down on paper. I am living my second life and handling it with care.”

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Run!. Um, disturbing. That’s all I have to say. Disturbing. Okay, so I said it twice. 

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: Bad pig. I like that second sentence formed. Quite profound.

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Three this week. Attention. I am a winner! Yay, me! Um, unless it’s not me. Hmm. I will shhhh now. And Lock You Up. Whoa, I thought this one was going to be a whole lot more interesting, not that it wasn’t interesting, but whew. A third, To Play. @BediMona

Melissa Barker-Simpson of Melissa Barker-Simpson (Author): Three for One. Yep, three Haiku for one post. Melissa is an author of numerous books so make sure to visit her Author Page on Amazon here.

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Out of the Dog House…  Interesting middle line.

Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: SNACK TIME, WOOF!. Doesn’t my title for it say it all? 🙂 If not or if so, go check it out anyway.

Clarence Holm of PrairieChat: Cerberus.  Good title there. And a good Haiku to go with it.

Olga of Stuff and what if…Retirement. Ahhh, the dream. 🙂

Al of Al the Author: Gain and The Hound? GoT Talent?

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  Dog vs. Rabbit. Um, I so…I just am going to stay quiet about this one. You all go and come up with your own interpretations. Sometimes I am just soooo wrong.

Sarah of tuckedintoacorner: Hounded. Three for one from Sarah. Who is hounding her and what is to be gained. Hmm.

Serins of Serins Sphere: Haunted by Hell Hounds. A Haibun.  @SerinsSphere

Jennifer of The Secret Keeper: What will come and Meditation. Really like the last one. It nails the act of the title perfectly.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams: Freedom of Love. I might have called this one Rediscovery or something like that. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography as well. @MichelleLunato

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: The call of the sea. Wow, he combined three challenges into one Haiku. That’s serious. Check out and get Simplicity Lane free, go here for where you can get it.  Through a Stranger’s Eyes here and Résumé for Love for free here.

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Red Hot. Some really great photos on her post in regards to this challenge and the photo challenge she combines it with hosted on Blue Daisyz.

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Annoyance. At least this is what I get out of it. I agree.  @MinKhor

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordWe are hounds forever. Okay, there are four Haiku this week. Man, I am like so worried which one she thinks I am. And here I was going to mention the cool header photo for this. Geesh. @girally

Becky G of Becky G? Oh, That’s Me!: Meditation. Not her title, but mine because this can happen when you do meditate. 🙂

Swatiu of imgrowingOne way or another. I like this one. The idea behind it really makes me think. Very interesting. Nice.

Martha of Meredith’s Musings: Cruel and Aspiration The second one. Yeah. Been thinking about that A LOT lately. A whole lot.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Hounding Kitchen Fears and The Skinhead Hound. When I saw the title of that second one I was a bit concerned. But turns out it was a different definition than first came to mind. Whew.

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: Sudden Flight. I like when the words actually bring in thoughts or music that inspires from them as well. That’s kind of cool. One art connected to another art in a far out way.

SW ysobel of Spunky WayfarerAnimal Mania There are moments when I read a Haiku and simply shake my head in wonder. Fortunately there was an explanation this time. Wow. @SpunkyWayfarer

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Summer. She used the evil word as a title. Not sure I can read it. Hmm. Oh how I disagree. But then gain I am allergic to the sun and to heat. When I say I wish I had a man cave, I actually mean it. Actually a writer’s cave would be awesome. @TeandPaper

Colleen of Silver Threading: Typed Out. I think Colleen is experiencing some novel pangs.  @ColleenChesebro  Also remember to drop by the LWI site and read Colleen’s Book Reviews and Interviews with Indie Authors. She is excellent. Click here to see everything she’s written.

Elke of writingindevizes: Supersleuth. Interesting how she went with this. Cool.

Carol of Mama Cormier gives No Pain, No Gain. The evil speaks to her, but for her own good. @carol_cormier

Juliet of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Jekyll or Hyde…You Decide. Hmm, a very interesting but true Haiku. I wonder when one decides they know though? Then again some just never do know. @BWseekingBL

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Run. Tsk tsk tsk. Greg and his wild thoughts. Not sure if there are costumes involved here or not. I just had to say that. Anyone knowing Greg will have to laugh at that.  @greg_wolford 

Mari T. of Overcoming Static: Pursuing Growth. Ha. Okay, I think it’s funny. I’m not certain if it’s supposed to be, but that’s where I’m going with it.

Josue Mapagdalita (pen name: Sueju Takeshi) of Takeshi’s Flight: Grades are just numbers. I like that title even before reading the Haiku. And a good message as well. Sure would like to know where that grade scale is used. Man, we don’t have that here.

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: Unfulfilled. Hmm. I somehow don’t think this is an actual personal Haiku. But a good one to learn from.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Troubled Mind and Plights of a Merchant. OOOO, that second one. 🙂 Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes: Finbar. I love these two Haiku. A great story and a MUST READ. She is a published author after all. And I have interviewed her and reviewed one of her books. Visit her Amazon Author page for her books by clicking here. You can read my interview with her and her co-author here which has a link to my review.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Trials. I got the image of someone making headway a little at a time as they were going through various hard moments.

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Hounded. Glad Claudette did her Haiku as a reminder. 🙂

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Every Moment. A very positive message in her Haiku this week. 🙂 Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.

A tie this week.

Mari T. of Overcoming Static: Pursuing Growth. Ha. Okay, I think it’s funny. I’m not certain if it’s supposed to be, but that’s where I’m going with it.

AND

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Plights of a Merchant.  Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

 

And the Closing Haiku:

Dread days hound my soul,

Daily traversing the dark,

My faith brings me light.

or

I hound for her love

Like a thirsty man’s dire need

I gain naught alone.

or

Hounds of Mounds call me,

I look over ancient wood,

Gaining Almond Joys.


Much Love, Much Success, and Much Respect,

Ronovan
