Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 320 Day&Flaw


I looked up FLAW in the thesaurus and liked the world FOIBLE. I clicked it and the definition had an example (an all-too-human foible.). I’ve always liked the word foible. I just like the way it sounds. That’s a big part of why I like poetry, the way you can use the sounds of words to help create or convey a step above what the words themselves alone mean.

It’s the painting pictures with words you’ve heard about so often.

It’s not just “The blue sky spreads her shawl over her twin, the ocean, protecting her from death by the Sun’s kiss.”

It’s “The vault of heaven lowers its cerulean veil with each day’s end, to reveal treasures beyond.”

It’s “The celestial sphere shimmers like sapphires with each passing moment.”

Why didn’t I use foible in these examples? That would be helping. Me? Help? Never… MUahahahahhaahaha. (That’s my maniacal laugh.)

nature saves – a kouta poem

care for life in      all      its forms

each      with purpose and meaning

protecting one another

fail in this       means death

 

 

The Japanese poetry form of kouta, meaning little song, was apparently created during the Muromachi Period (14th-16th centuries). It became popular again during the late 1800s as a Geisha song style.

There are two versions;

  1. A four-line or quatrain poem with the syllable pattern of 7/5/7/5.
  2. A four-line or quatrain poem with the syllable pattern of 7/7/7/5.

There are no hard and fast theme elements to consider. Some kouta use colloquialisms and onomatopoeia. The thing to remember is, it’s all according to your imagination. I have seen sites mentioning a fifth line may be added

poetry by ronovan hester image

For added information:

One point to consider about the Geisha song style of Kouta is, the song may contain a 5/7/7 style. This is based on the first such Geisha song using this style in 1856. There may also be confusion in how the west interprets the style into English.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 318 Meet&Part

Please Read. I do this challenge for a few reasons two of them are:

  1. To give prompts for all types of writers that make it easy for them to have a go-to place each week in addition to their other spots.
  2. To give those honoring my challenge with their efforts a few extra visitors each week to find their blogs and read their poems. I’ve seen the increase in the likes on their poems increase to amazing numbers over the 6+ years this weekly challenge has been running without interruption.
  3. To create friendships between people from all over the world. And that has happened and I am so happy to see those bongs grow strong.

But, some don’t receive the visits I would like for them to have. I think it’s mostly due to when the poems are written. As we all know, the beginning of the week is the hot time for blogging. So, if you can keep it in mind to come back and visit some of those poets, I would appreciate it. You can click like, if you like it, leave a comment if you’re inspired to. I sometimes just comment with a reaction, a haiku of my on in response to there, or a simple “Nice. I like it.” but I only say that if I think it’s “nice” and “I like it”. But if I don’t say anything, that doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s nice. 🙂 Sometimes I’m at a low ebb of energy with all this Chronic Fatigue along with the allergic to heat… and I live near Atlanta, GA. Just imagine… CF+HeatAllergy+Atlanta=MeltingRonovan

The definition of PONY here isa literal translation of a foreign language text. For example, Robert Pinsky is reported to have used a literal translation in preparing his translation of Dante‘s Inferno (1994), as he does not know Italian. Similarly, Richard Pevear worked from literal translations provided by his wife, Larissa Volokhonsky, in their translations of several Russian novels.

This poem uses the Haiku form with a repeating pattern of the 3rd line of one stanza being the 1st line of the next. I started this pattern during a previous post. Give it a try if you like.

I composed this in response to Jibber Jabber with Sue’s poetry prompt of QUALITY, Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge of PONY, ALMOST, and FROM. and my Haiku Poetry Challenge words CHIMPANZEE and KISS. Click the links to go to the challenges.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 315 Chimpanzee&Kiss

Already with 18 poets as of Tuesday 11:59 PM. Missing some of my people from last week.

Please come by on Wednesday for the new Décima Poetry Challenge. I sometimes have the prompt related to the Haiku words. It’s kind of fun to have the two work together in your own poetry.

Check out the responses below in the comments for links to our Poets haiku this week.

How to write Haiku in English. And how to do a Pingback.

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!

The Quenching Cup – a poem

her name called       moves her,

from the summer’s scorching heat,

clouds teasing relief

 

clouds teasing relief,

give hope of a friendly pool,

to cool the burning

 

to cool the burning

she crawls to the edge to drink

from this lake of fate

 

from this lake of fate

the point        a quenching rebirth

she may soar         again

Ronovan Writes poetry image standard

This poem uses the Haiku form with a repeating pattern of the 3rd line of one stanza to be the 1st line of the next. I am not aware of a Haiku form using this pattern, not that it matters. Give it a try if you like. I composed this in response to Jibber Jabber with Sue’s poetry prompt of FRIENDLY and Pensitivity’s Three Things Challenge of NAME, EDGE, and POINT.
