Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 334 GRACE and Slip.

A new Seasonal Badge for the Challenge is below if you would like to use it. Some of you may have noticed in the reader the badge has returned to the usual one. This is because our poets are accustomed to seeing that one, so I set it as my featured image. We’ve been missing a few of our regulars for the past couple of weeks since I changed the image, and I’m worried the new image might have lost them. I hope they come back soon.


Check out the COMMENTS for entries this week, and come back throughout the week to see more links to poems as they come in.

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

the final bow – a poem

the final bow

the great hall grows cold,

no cheers or laughter abound,

for the fallen lead


My poem for this week’s Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge.

new storms ahead – a poem

new storms ahead

*

~

*

with one cold shudder

life falls into the abyss,

never to return

 

never to return,

the frozen traumatized land,

the dirt now laid bare

 

the dirt now laid bare,

irresponsibility,

its cutting care spent

 

its cutting care spent,

abused lands once more tended,

new red flags ahead

*

~

I imagine those reading this one might think of a certain topic but it has many meanings. Did you know that when farmers, gardeners, and anyone who has to dig in a new area should get a person to come out and search for the utilities underground first? The person will place red flags where any existing areas of concern are which will remain areas of concern for the future unless the utility is rerouted, made obsolete, or the person needing to dig, finds another, equally or more fertile place to dig.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 330 COLD & Fall

I try to pick words I’ve never used before for the prompts. But, I did use Fall back on 10/15/2018 or from some 2018/10/15. Such an easy word to use this time of year and I’ve only used it once in over 6 years. (I did use it for the Décima Poetry Challenge once.)

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 328 DUST & Weed

Hello to all, I have a request to make: Click here for my post from Friday ‘Poetry Challenges and Prompts‘. I’m not taking any other space here for it than that.

Also, check out RW’s The13 Writing Challenge. A Spooky Word Count Enforced Challenge for Poetry and Prose. IYou have all the way until the end of Wednesday, October 28th to enter. It looks like a long post but isn’t. Some of it is just an explanation of what certain elements are such as a protagonist, conflict, climax, and resolution. I go into quite a bit of detail with examples from the Netflix show House of Cards and Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Not as their being examples of spooky stories, but to give examples of what most people would be familiar with. I even explain how a villain can be the protagonist.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 327 DRIP & DROP Please See Beginning Request,

Hello to all, I have a request to make: Click here for my post from Friday ‘Poetry Challenges and Prompts‘.

It’s asking you to:

  1. Link to challenges or prompts you are aware of, preferably to a how-to participate page, if not, then a current challenge.
  2. One sentence description of the challenge/prompt. NOT REQUIRED (This would just be saving me time.)
  3. Host’s name if you got it, if not, I can get it. NOT REQUIRED (This would just be saving me time.)

I want to participate in some prompts to stretch the creative muscles AND I have created a page at the top of my blog with all the prompt links provided so far, or at least the ones I’ve been able to get to and AS LONG AS THEY ARE FOR WRITING. This will be for you to find new places to write and for anyone wandering by to click on and find something. Here’s the page. It’s nothing fancy, no images or anything like that. Just straight up text and tone. I’ll probably add something later. You know me, I can’t leave anything alone.

Thank you to those already helping out, and to anyone else who joins in.

Future – A Haiku Poem

genesis is sowed

Our Past Our Future – a Haibun poem

earth blisters from guilt

of mankind’s ignorance,

shade is cast on all

Remember this is a rambler of a thought withoutt editing, so it went where it went. Enjoy or scream.

The environment has been a concern since Adam took his first breath. Actually, it was before then. God did make the Garden of Eden. Note to some, the Garden was in Eden, not named Eden. You wouldn’t believe how that’s not taught in Sunday School. But back to my thoughts. Environmentalists and the casual green supporters consider they do all they can to stop the killing of our planet. But, none of us really do. We all take, but we can never truly give back in equal measure what we take. There is only so much matter on the planet and it’s recycled every day in one form or the other. But each time, a bit more is lost in the processing. There is always processing. You grow the tomato plant organically from the compost and fertilizer you gathered for the purpose. The plants grow and give. You take. You consume. And then you recycle back into the world. No matter how you recycle it, some is lost in the process by your body. I guess maybe we should just stop having babies and eat up all the cows and pigs and chickens as well as all the other types of animals we raise. So long Emu and Ostrich. Yum.

Yes, I’m being weird today, but this is one of my stream of thought posts that I like to do sometimes. I’m not even sure what I started out to write anymore. But I think it was basically that we all need to do more, go above and beyond what we think we need to do in order to keep this planet burning and turning into a ball of nothing but a sky filled with swirling dust that once was meant to feed living, breathing creatures of all kinds. Then next year? Step it up another notch. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle? About Reduce, Reduce, Reuse, Reuse, Recycle?

Our Past Our Future poetry image

Shade here is not one of the traditional dictionary definitions.

The term can be found in Jane Austen‘s novel Mansfield Park (1814). Young Edmund Bertram is displeased with a dinner guest’s disparagement of the uncle who took her in: “With such warm feelings and lively spirits it must be difficult to do justice to her affection for Mrs. Crawford, without throwing a shade on the Admiral.”

In other words, it’s an insult but an insult of another level.

The first major use of “shade” that introduced the slang to the greater public was in Jennie Livingston‘s documentary film, Paris Is Burning (1990), about the mid-1980s drag scene in Manhattan.[2][4] In the documentary, one of the drag queens, Dorian Corey, explains that shade derives from “reading”, the “real art form of insults”. Shade is a developed form of reading: “Shade is, I don’t tell you you’re ugly. But I don’t have to tell you, because you know you’re ugly. And that’s shade.”

I’ve seen the documentary and I can attest to the truth that shade is a whole other level of insult. If done correctly, it’s done with style, grace, and directly to your face.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 326 SCORCH & SHADE

Note: I’ve changed the syllable counter I link to. My antivirus has been giving me a ‘blocked threat’ message the last several times I tried it. It could be an error, but this one works nicely. Just put your entire Haiku in.

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

Check out the COMMENTS for entries this week, and come back throughout the week to see more links to poems as they come in.

The Guidelines:

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English 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, visit HowManySyllables.com. (You would be surprised at how many syllables some words actually have.)
    • Words have different definitions and you use the definitions that work for you Haiku. You can also use SYNONYMS. Go to Thesaurus.com for synonym help.
  1.  
  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.


The Challenge Words!

SCORCH&SHADE
