Ronovan Writes’ Week 102 #Haiku #Review with #Links.

Annette of Annette Rochelle Aben-Um, Anette with pom poms? Why did I never think of that one before? You would have thought that would have crossed my mind at least once . . . at least.

Judy of Edwina’s Episodes-Beauties in a Row shows off more than Judy’s talent but her other assets, although perhaps not her most, um, admirable ones. (Did I say that?)

Jane of Jane Dougherty Writes-I think Jane’s making commentary on my day of birth. She doesn’t know the half of it. Muahahahaha. Birthing Pains Triumphant.

Veronica of Charlottesville Winter-Deep, seriously. A short story in three lines, just the way it should be. Excellent. Closed Doors on My Birthday.

TJ of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin-Spring Riot. Amazing photo here and perfect for the title and haiku.

Xenia of WhippetWisdom-A thinky piece, at least to me. Two Whippet’s joyous down by the sea. Summer Blessings.

Wendy of The Dragon’s Lair-Miracle of Miracles, doth the darling one speak.

Mira of To Wear a Rainbow-I’ve been reading and watching documentaries lately. It’s a thing I do. Hate because I love history. The recent object of choice seems to run right along with Glory and Cheer by Mira.

Mira of They, You, and Me-Ah, I didn’t know I could reach that far. I’m blushing. Tender Touch.

Ken of RIVRVLogr-Interesting haiku. That first line has me thinking along three different ideas for the Haiku. Spring Unfolds.

Bill of Engleson.ca-Dude, really? I wonder what the numbers are. Hmm. Balance.

Debra of D.B. Mauldin-Summer Solstice. Imagine, my birthday is the first day.

Frances of imanikingblog-Welcome to Our World! Ha, if only they could speak words we understood.

Peter of Wherever I lay my pen, that’s my home-Birth Cheer. You know, I think you’re right. It does make people feel like that. You would almost think the opposite.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway-All About Me! Yes, Ritu devoted two haiku to me. Sigh, I am so adorable it hurts sometimes.

FloridaBorne of Two On A Rant-Night’s End. OOOoOOoooo dark and spooky. Kinda sorta.

Tessa of Always A Writer-Too Easy, Get Ready! Birth is the title of Tessa’s haiku. Oh, how new moms have probably said these words then regretted it.

Leara of LearaWrites-Tourist’s Treat. Party TIME!!!!!!! Beach Blanket BINGO!!!!!

Pat of Thoughts and Entanglements-Color Codes. I know Pat is wondering what in the world I’m doing coming up with that title, but codes signify things, as this haiku content signifies something. So there. Hrmph.

Marie of The Syllabub Sea-Carry On. Yep, another weirdo title from me, but I gots to do what I gots to do. They make sense to me.

Ruby of Whispering Thoughts-Preggo Pause. O,o Don’t I just make you wonder sometimes? Yes, I am that kind of mood during this round of reviewing. Lucky you guys, right?

Sandra of Wild Daffodil-Heat. Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.

Khor of Project Prose-Wonder of Life. A new one can make things like new again.

Janice of Ontheland-Summer’s birthday celebration. Even nature knew to celebrate my birthday.

Denis of Haiku Hound-Banksia Blooming. Interesting looking specimen.

Diedre of Toward the Within-Fragile Brevity. Okay, having to think too much. Brain . . . splitting . . . in . . .  two. Must . . . eject . . .

Jacqueline of A Cooking Pot and Twistedtales-Hip, hip, hurray. I had nothing to do with the twins. Just saying.

R. Todd of A Flash of Fiction-At Birth. Such violence in this one. ABUSE!!!!! You know, I’m surprised this hasn’t been an issue.

Colleen of SilverThreading-Astrological Grudges. Okay, haven’t even headed over yet and I’m scared. Hmm, interesting.

Louise of Fantasy Raconteur-Birth of a Star. Hmm, I could go weird and mention the Voice or America’s Got Talent, but I won’t. 😀 Muahahahahaha.

Janice of Ontheland has another one-Light bulb flash. Ha, okay so the haiku is the same as the title. Sort of. Funny!

Scott of The House of Bailey-Life and Death. He has a warning label on this one and promises to write more cheefuller next time.

OBA of The king’soracle-New birth cheers. Okay, so I was going to be funny then I read the second poem. Hrmph. She had to be all nice and stuff. Hrmph.

Srivi of The Piscean Me-Begin to End… Okay, gettin’ all philosophical like here.

Oneta of Sweet aroma-Let Her Soar. Monkey cheerleading? I guess it has to start somewhere.

Sri of Naa Prapancham-My World…-In a family. Two for two sides of the story.

Lizi of Quilted Poetry-Happy Croaking! Okay, it sounds the opposite of Birth, but it’s not.

Vashti of The Writer Next Door-Welcome. Interesting. Two images used here. Interesting.

Tolulope of Rubys Polaroid-Celebration. Cute picture with this one. So glad I’m human.

Tricia of A Creative State of  Mind-Robin’s Song. I so wish this was the song of Spring!!!!

39

Florence of Meanings And Musings-Seeking Joy. But does it really chase it? Hmm.

Melissa of The Aran Artisan-Three Cheers For Summer! I hope they aren’t bonfiring their vanities. Dear me.

Elise of Rawls E Fantasy-“War’s End” & “Trapped”. Two lovelies entered for last weeks challenge but I’m tossing them in here anyway.

RonovanWrites 68th #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Challenge Review

My pen flows always,

Since our meeting and love sparked,

My muse is in my heart.

Hope y’all don’t mind the Closing Haiku. It’s been a while since I’ve done one. I’ve tried to stay out of the influencing of moods in the challenges lately. And honestly there does seem to be a bit more variety now that I no longer do an Opening Haiku.

Just links this week. Not positive how long my window of internet is.

RonovanWrites 67th #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Challenge Review

Log: Blog Sol 556

I’m screwed. Communications in main command center is down. Had to be driven in rover to FF Site MickeyD’s for brief use of systems. Some participants of challenge will be slighted in review or missed. Apologies now. Will make up for it later.

Signing off for now, Space Ranger Ronovan.

Haiku Challenge Review Image

First to Offend this Week!

TJ Paris: Cry Out To Me |La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. Last week TJ brought as three and he does so again. I didn’t put out a Haiku of my own until Wednesday as part of my #BeWoW link share. I waited because I thought TJ had figured out the Haiku I shared just after midnight my time on Mondays was a Haiku for the challenge and thus had the challenge words in it. But what does he do this time? Three again and just as fast. Man, the dude just has the flow. @Roccoco_a_GoGo



Annette Rochelle Aben (Best Selling Author, Radio Show Host): Sunshine | Annette Rochelle Aben. I figure this was either about sunshine or she was talking about herself. You can decide which when you visit the further adventures of Rochelle in Annette Aben.  Check out Annette’s books at the Author link above and her Radio Show at the Host link. @YouAreTheExpert

Elizabeth: Sunrise | Tea & Paper. The humor of this is I named Annette’s before seeing the name of Liz’s. I think she goes by Liz at times. But I know her as Elizabeth but wanted to share her preference. But anyway, I like how she came up with the image this week, and it is part of her Haiku. How the challenge sets minds to thinking and observing is fun. @teandpaper

Alice: GSimple Gestures | Boomerang Zone. Now from a lady who might bring to mind a a movie title from a 1974 film by Martin Scorsese that saw the lead actress win the Academy award, we have Alice. Fortunately she is doing the opposite of the movie titles name with us. . @Vidocq_CC

Judy: Suit to a T (Shirt) | Edwina’s Episodes. She may not be the one cast as a Frank N. Furter and no she will not be sullying the memory of a classic but this lady makes any color look good. Haiku must Fall in to her lap with as quickly as she writes them. @EdwinasEpisodes

jazzytower: Who’s Carol? | Thoughts and Entanglements. Public Relations says I should cuddle up with this Haiku. Not sure if some would approve of that, but depending on who Carol is, I might be game.

Kat: Three Cheers to Kat! | like mercury colliding. Man Kat can do. All the way from Nepal this former leader of OMRLP now spends her days enjoying words and the world around her. Her commentary of the season of the US national pastime is quite poignant considering the fate of various teams of late.

Liz: That Cheery Call | Quilted Poetry. All the way from the age defying weather of the cryogenic frozen lands of the north, comes a lady of esteem, no not the family of German actors from the early 20th Century, but a brilliant wordsmith in her own right. Her self titled Haiku could have a sub heading of Contrary Calling as well.

Jane Dougherty (Author): Sing, Sing a Song | Jane Dougherty Writes. The three degrees of Jane this week were not written about a popular Australian Trio of singing brothers, although one of their members is named and does sing. I dare say this one hit wonder of a singer has perhaps the longest charted song on record, and does not appear in a prison of the same name as the title may infer.  Check out Jane’s books on Amazon at the Author link above. @MJDougherty33

Mira:(2 links) Cheer Me Up | They, You And Me. I would love to but I’m certain there would be several to protest my attempts. I think we all fell for Mira At First Sight and have enjoyed her presence ever since. As for the Haiku, oh this one touches the heart in a deep way and reaches out to many a member I am certain.  Cheer and Joy | To Wear A Rainbow. Giving others a bit of support I do believe. Such a thoughtful lady. @BediMona

Ritu: Gone-A Tonka & Last Orders | But I Smile Anyway. No, I’m sorry for all you field hockey fans, this is not that Ritu. Perhaps after reading that last Haiku I might change my mind and think Ritu is using a fake photo and this IS the field hockey player. Nonetheless, the Tonka involved here is not the toy that brings smiles and cheer to millions of children. @PhantomGiggler

Clarence:(3 this week.) The Victim | PrarieChat. Not sure if he’s already earned his wings but I think he’s been living a wonderful life, and I bet he’s tired of hearing things like that. A story of the evils of life and love and aftermath is provided to us this week. And a second one: Susan Lucci’s Last Goodbye. Ha. Someone has been watching way too much TV this week. A third, Just In Time For Ronovan’ s Cheer and Call

Sue Vincent (Author): Recall | Daily Echo. What can you say about a beautiful woman with red hair and a list of books a mile long to her name that hasn’t already been said? No, seriously, what can you say? Let her know in the comments for her Haiku. Her story told is full of nature and will bring a rosy glow to your cheeks . . . if you hold your device close enough to your face when you read her Haiku that is. Click the Author link for Sue at Amazon and her many books. @SCVincent

Sandra: Orange | Wild Daffodil. To praise our Flower in residence would be like Gilding a Lily, so I’ll move on from here. Daffy left us with a bit of a mystery this week with her photography. Where, what, why, and when were not answered, although normally a forthcoming individual, she was forthawaying this time. See what I mean by Make the Most of Your Post. by visiting this Haiku and noting what all she connects it to.

Steven: Thrush | Ramblings of a Drabbling Mind. Steven has been kind to us. Not only does he continue to provide his experimental Haiku but also a traditional one for those of us who need the in-your-face form.

Greg: Shouts of Joy | Potholes in the Road of Life. Sorry ladies, and perhaps some men, Greg isn’t part of Wolford Fashion so you’ll have to look for those bodysuits elsewhere. The young man brings us a message today, a message of opposing feelings, as he should have, and one that could apply to the Writer’s Quote Wednesday by Colleen. His participation, as explained in the beginning of the post shows what the community that has grown here has truly become. Two words + three lines = many friends. @greg_wolford

Janice: On a Crescent Moon | Ontheland  She may be a HÓU but that just means she’s popular. Don’t know what that means? Ah, then you haven’s snooped like the master snooper has. She’s a Monkey of Fire and all signs point to her being quite a success wherever she may find herself. Her softer side is shown in a very lovely moment shared here. I greatly enjoyed reading about what led to the Haiku being written and the fact the words were on her mind at any given point during this time speaks to me a great deal. It means a lot and is most appreciated. @ontheland1

Jen (JK): SKΆL & SALUT | The Secret Keeper. Some may wonder if JK is secretly a Rowling success in the world of publishing. That would be an affirmative. She publishes several times a week, making her a widely published author read in more countries than many of the supposed top authors of our time. A toast to our friend for her two Haiku that gives us a gander in to a life that lights up and puffs us up with (pride?). @occultguardian

Tessa: The Last Call | Writing is my life. No, not the Canadian hockey player, nor the subject of the Norwegian novel of the same name, well maybe not, I haven’t asked. She is a a writer of fiction though, and has her work on her site in chapter form for your enjoyment and convenience. Her Haiku can be happy or sad, all depending on which subject you focus upon and which formed sentence you are looking at.

Daniel Schwamm: Call on ME | Musing Life’s Mysteries. I don’t believe he Daniel is a mushroom farmer, no matter what some of you may believe to have deduced. Although that would be a tasty venture. And no, not a Kiwi farmer either, (Neither the bird nor fruit.) and I think that rather droll of all of you for assuming that a New Zealander would automatically be such. Ahhh, when I first saw the title of his Haiku it brought to mind the song Lean on Me, and although that is not the title, the message is much the same. The link is to the Bill Withers version from 1972. The image is not he that has been named, but Al Green.

Al: Cheers of the Disturbed One | Al the Author’s Blog. A well preserved sort for an early to mid 20th Century Actor, Writer, Director, and Producer in Hollywood, Al Lane now spends day as a Civil Servant while spending most of his day writing for our enjoyment. Yes, you read that correctly. Some of you will actually get it, and some will hurt me physically for implying you wouldn’t. For some unknown reason the young man decided to write FIVE Haiku on his birthday. Mostly about alcohol even when disguised as something else. 110 Cheers for AL!!! @AlistairLane

Elusive: Law of 22 Prairial | Elusive Trope. Hiding out in the wilds of PA after finding success in leasing out parts of the city with his name across the welcome signs for entertainment purposes, the Elusive one now pleases his visitors with writings and continues to grace our community each week with a Haiku offering. The Haiku is a great terror of an attempt this week. A true life or death of a read. And on his birthday as well.

R. Todd: Mockingjay | A Flash of Fiction. I didn’t want to out our friend, but Lord Todd has been found alive and his passing in 1997 at the age of 89 was an attempt to escape to the glare of public life and slink into the obscurity of the blog life. But he has been found out. My powers of deduction are beyond compare. I have not the slightest what that title for the Haiku nor the Haiku itself means. Do you? It must be some obscure reference to something he’s seen in his past life.

D.B. Mauldin (Author): Early Bird & Nature | mama bear musings. Not sure if it’s too hot, too cold or just right where she is but her Haiku seems to make me think just right. Maybe I should have eaten first before perusing that first one. At least it wasn’t spaghetti. Check out the Author link for offerings on Amazon and click HERE for the About page links to other online distribution such as Smashwords.

Olga: Political Uproar | Stuff and what if. Does she have a sister or cousin who appeared with Nicholas Cage, or perhaps that relative played someone with the same name as myself? Humor over with now on with the show. Olga shows her rampant political activism she has hidden from us all this time.

Melissa Barker-Simpson (Author): Trick or Treat | M Barker-Simpson. Never knew a game show host and jailed football player had an offspring somehow but here we have the proof. Just remember to have your pets spayed or neutered or you may find some gloves near an uncomfortable scene. I believe the title gives away the Haiku meaning, as it should to some extent. Quite the creative flare for the imagery. Click the Author link above to visit her on Amazon.

Pat B.: Four Cheers for Pat | A season and a time. Imagine a famous chef Brockett in your neighborhood. Wouldn’t you want to be her neighbor? This week Pat went cheerfully nuts with commentary on the nature of life in various facets.

J Lapis:   Calls to Cheer | DarkLight Harbor. Feeling blue today or precious as a gem? No? No worries, I believe our poet has it covered. Suspense in the later of the two offerings this week. Had us wanting to throw stones from feeling so blue but pulled things out at the last moment.

Claudette: Echoes | to search and to find. Speaking of a real jewel, Claudette returns to us this week.

 

Shelly Faber: Cheer & Call | My Red Wine Diary@ShellyFaber

Melissa: Autumn Wreath for the birds | The Aran Artisan. Not certain about that title but it is the title of the post.

 

 

denis: cheer the call | Haiku hound. A Haiku that could apply to man or beast and an image that works so well. And I made him dig for this image. Awesome me.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega (Author):  Cheer & Call | The Writer Next DoorCheck out Vashti on Amazon at the Author link above and you can see her interview by clicking HERE. @VashtiQV

Diedré M. Blake: Cheer & Call | Toward The Within. Never thought of that last line before. Cool mind going on here.

Steven S. Walsky (Author): the call of Mickey | Simplicity LaneClick the Author link above to go to Steven’s blog where you will find all the available places for each book. He’s varied.

 

 

 

E. Rawls (Author):  Now What You Think & Cling | Rawls E. Fantasy. Check out Bleeding Hearts, a collection of short stories, poems, and riddles, at Elizabeth’s Author page on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.  @VChronicles_

Florence: night silence/support | Meanings And Musings. But my internet is down, how can you hear me? It must be very silent now. 😉 @FTThum

RonovanWrites 66th #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Challenge Review

44 Players this week, and one amazing new person joined in. You definitely need to go check her blog out. Also you’ll notice something strange about the review. I did it in reverse. After the First to Offend it goes in last one in, first one mentioned and so forth. I thought, why not throw a monkey mallet into the mix.

Pine car’s race down hill,

To certain glory and dread,

Pizza does race on.

Haiku Review 66

New to Offend this Week!

NEW! Diedré M. Blake: “…a writer and art therapist, specializing in the treatment of eating disorders.  She goes by “D.” and has been called a “Renaissance woman” by friends. Travelling has always been an aspect of her personal and family history.  She was born in Jamaica.” Check out much more about this fascinating woman on her about page by clicking HERE. How Low Feels | Toward The Within. Never thought of that last line before. Cool mind going on here.

First to Offend this Week!

 TJ Paris: Odd Couplings |La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. Does this dude have a photo for every occasion? If things get more difficult around here it might be because I’m challenging his photo file. Nah, I wont’ do that, at least not on purpose. @Roccoco_a_GoGo



Steven S. Walsky (Author): the words drift back | Simplicity Lane. A Haibun this week–a story–something you do need to read. A truly great piece of writing. Click the Author link above to go to Steven’s blog where you will find all the available places for each book. He’s varied.

Shailzaa: The Tree | Fewunsaidwords. Very good way of using pine here. Two different ways of looking at it depending on the line you want to focus on.

Swatiu: Lesson Learned | imgrowing. I think my title for this one fits. Really it does. Don’t care what y’all say.

E. Rawls (Author):  Burdens & Chocolate Longing | Rawls E. Fantasy. Some serious issues here. That’s all I’m saying. Check out Bleeding Hearts, a collection of short stories, poems, and riddles, at Elizabeth’s Author page on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.  @VChronicles_

Florence: Dare to Fly | Meanings And Musings. One of those life lesson things she does. @FTThum

Alka: Weltshmertz and our Woeful Longing | Magnanimous Words. She was truly inspired this week. Only partly by the words which then lead elsewhere. @girally

Steven: Taiga and Mo(u)rning | Ramblings of a Drabbling Mind. He went nature. Also make certain to check out the blurb at the bottom of his post.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega (Author):  Ekho’s Passion | The Writer Next Door. Nature of a different sort. One must give credit for one interpreting nature in more than one way, while in some ways staying the same. Check out Vashti on Amazon at the Author link above and you can see her interview by clicking HERE. @VashtiQV

H. M. Goodchild (Author): Golden Moans | Folksong and Fantasy. I took a bit of liberty with the naming of this one, a touch of humor. When you read her Haiku, 2 of them, you will see where it came from. We have a talent with us. H. M. Goodchild is found on Amazon as Harriet Goodchild, yes, we have another author joining us. Click the Author link above to go to her Amazon Author page. 

Greg: It Will End | Potholes in the Road of Life. He cheated, and that’s all I’m sayin’. @greg_wolford

Becky G: For a Road Untraveled | Becky G? Oh, that’s me! Funny how two in a row used the prompt words in one line. Good use of photography to give her words more meaning or a completed meaning.

VronLacroix: Grief in the valley | Simply Shanpshots. Hmm, interesting. After a couple of readings I got it. A great thing about Haiku is you can read it twice in a matter of seconds. 🙂

jazzytower: Beauty Reaches | Thoughts and Entanglements. Well I personally think one aids the other.

Daniel Schwamm: Nest of Death | Musing Life’s Mysteries. Cool. Totally did some interpreting here and awesome. That one for pine may take people a few moments, but it works.

Jane Dougherty (Author): Long neck memories | Jane Dougherty Writes. Three Haiku telling a story. Had fun coming up with this title.  Check out Jane’s books on Amazon at the Author link above. @MJDougherty33

denis: tomorrow | Haiku hound. A Haiku that could apply to man or beast and an image that works so well. And I made him dig for this image. Awesome me.

Elizabeth: Silence | Tea & Paper. I think more of us can understand this one, including the story to go with it than we all could imagine. Believe me, I totally get it. @teandpaper

Dr. Kottaway: Grieve | KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog. Rhymes all over the place in this one, and an expressionist pine is given.

Ritu: Sonu Singh’s Lament & The Things You Do For Love | But I Smile Anyway. Both nature, but different. @PhantomGiggler

D.B. Mauldin (Author): Aromatherapy & Love | mama bear musings. Okay, that first one is just funny if  you pay attention to her blog other than the Haiku challenge. . Check out the Author link for offerings on Amazon and click HERE for the About page links to other online distribution such as Smashwords.

Al: ThreeFerOne | Al the Author’s Blog. I know, not very original of me but it’s one of those days where thinking of Al as bear in the woods just kind of scarred me. @AlistairLane

J Lapis:    5 Griefs and Pine-ings| DarkLight Harbor. Nice use of words you don’t use every day. I kind of like that.

Jen (JK): Among the Branches | The Secret Keeper. I think this is one people will relate to in their own varied ways. @occultguardian

Pat B.: Refuge | A season and a time. Very nice. Also some nice comments as well.

Elusive: Near the Clearcut | Elusive Trope. Yeah, I don’t always get the why of these things being done. Sometimes a necessity but most often not.

Sandra: Allegory | Wild Daffodil. Ha, funny with this one. Remember, Wild Daffy is the queen of what I call Make the Most of Your Post.

Nagrij or (Greg Pierce) yeah, I snooped. (Author): Oops | Nagrij Writes the Hits You Never Knew Existed. Yeah, I got it. I’m about an hour from their training facilities, my parents are about 5 minutes away. You can check out the list of books on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.

Olga: Lost to Wisdom | Stuff and what if. Very interesting image. Keep looking at it. A glance won’t work. The Haiku itself has a great message.

Janice: Lose the Craving | Ontheland  Okay, I got it. Helps to get it when people aren’t like constantly asking you the same question over and over even though you give the same answer each time. I literally mean over and over during the time I tried to review this one. @ontheland1

Sue Vincent (Author): Unchanging | Daily Echo. Jealousy in nature. Yeah, I can see that. Just like two old men. Click the Author link for Sue at Amazon and her many books. @SCVincent

Clarence:(2 links) Futility | PrarieChat. Aaarrrgh! Find out a bit about Clarence’s acting career in the comments. And a second one: Susan Lucci’s Last Goodbye. Ha. Someone has been watching way too much TV this week.

Kat: Grief Amidst the Pines | like mercury colliding. Okay, you have to love the dedication of this member.

  • I stopped on the way home to get a photo of that sapling nestled amidst the pines. Replaced the first pic. Like I said…perfect timing for this prompt! ☺️

Mira:(2 links) insufferable | They, You And Me. At first sight of the title I thought she was making a commentary on my choice of prompt words. loss | To Wear A Rainbow. I so need to pick more cheerful words next time. @BediMona

Judy: Mourn the Passing | Edwina’s Episodes. It’s not what you think. Go check it out. @EdwinasEpisodes

Peter Bouchier: ‘mine pine’ | Wherever I lay my pen, that’s my home. I like this one. A positive side of it all. Excellent.

Alice: Grief is a bitch | Boomerang Zone. Let’s call it therapy, and I think that’ll explain it. @Vidocq_CC

Meredith & Martha: Oh, Christmas Tree/Grief by Martha and K.I.S./Refugees by Meredith | Meredith’s Musings. These got a lot of lovin’ this week on Meredith’s blog as well as the reblog on my own. @Meredithlbl

Liz: Good Grief | Quilted Poetry. So says the wise. Or the very exasperated.

Juliette: No Home For The Holidays | Battered Wife seeking Better Life. Holiday hatin’. @BWseeingBL

RonovanWrites 65th #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Challenge Review

It’s now clear to me

Harping is much easier

Than I imagined.

I think that pretty much sums up how this challenge went. I was certain that Harp might throw some people but apparently I was wrong. Now on with the show.

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge Review 65

New to Offend this Week!

NEW! H. M. Goodchild (Author): dsdfs | Folksong and Fantasy. Numerous poetry included in this post, the challenge appears under the Haiku section and is the lat before a bit of a blurb. Also H.M. posted a haiku in the comments of the challenge post: Oh, don’t harp on so / Your mind’s clear by now, you know: / If it matters, Go! H. M. Goodchild is found on Amazon as Harriet Goodchild, yes, we have another author joining us. Click the Author link above to go to her Amazon Author page. 

First to Offend this Week!

Annette Rochelle Aben (Best Selling Author, Radio Show Host): The Stringed Winged | Annette Rochelle Aben. Good number of likes to this one and I enjoyed seeing the community commenting.  Check out Annette’s books at the Author link above and her Radio Show at the Host link. @YouAreTheExpert A side note here.



TJ Paris: Springtime |La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. Another Haiku with a great response in the comments. It’s a nature Haiku and the photo used is amazing, and nature. Those swans are a surprise! @Roccoco_a_GoGo

Me (Ronovan): Luminosity is Bliss | Ronovan Writes. I’ve enjoyed seeing the interpretations of my Haiku along with the interpretation of my explanation. Oddly, no one has come up with the exact meaning of it all. 🙂 But then I am a confusing kind at times.

Alice: Someone better | Boomerang Zone. A different manner of interpretation. A very clear message delivered. Deserves a visit and a Like. @Vidocq_CC

Shida: The Gift of Music | 876LoveR. Good message. Surprised by the Like number. Tells me something. @realrebel_r

Liz: Bird Song | Quilted Poetry. Very nice imagery in this one. And a bit of the life of Liz in her commentary of the Haiku.

Judy: When Nature Calls | Edwina’s Episodes. A nature Haiku of a different calling. One must consider what all nature encompasses. I think there is a natural way of looking at it. Also she says I am a hard taskmaster. Wait till the next one. @EdwinasEpisodes

Mira:(2 links) The Wait | They, You And Me. Romantic and suspenseful in a way. love and passion | To Wear A Rainbow. Not sure if she is speaking about my prompts and own Haiku or what. Or am I being paranoid? @BediMona

Tessa: Clear and Crisp | Writing is my life. A direct and to the point Haiku. But one I didn’t really think of. Sometimes it’s those simpler ones that surprise you.

Steven S. Walsky (Author): ‘why harp’ | Simplicity Lane. Great to look at in a relationship or political sort of way. Or in a Rhino/Elephant Romance kind of way. Click the Author link above to go to Steven’s blog where you will find all the available places for each book. He’s varied.

Clarence:(2 links) Tears, Mirth, and Dreams | PrarieChat. Touch of Irish history/mythology in this one. Google time folks.  . And a second one would be Oooh…And It Makes Me Wonder. I think some of you will appreciate this one. So get the Led out.

Prakash: A Match Heaven Made | Its PH. Yeah, the dude came with the Romance this week. I hate it when they show me up with the romantical stuff.

Kat: Your Fortune is Clear | like mercury colliding. Some of you have obviously NOT been to check this one out. And you are missing one cool presentation of the Haiku itself. Very well done. Oh, and the Haiku is cool too.

Olga: One Direction Go | Stuff and what if. Some of you may be disturbed by that title I chose but don’t worry, I wouldn’t lead you  astray.

Greg:(2 links) The Call Home | Potholes in the Road of Life. I mentioned in the reblog how Greg kept with the theme of his blog with this one, which should be expected, considering the words. But I like it when people are able to take most any word and do that. Greg didn’t link or paste this one for us, but I found it anyway-Harping. And he ain’t talkin’ bout no music neither. @greg_wolford

Ritu: Soapbox Blog-cast | But I Smile Anyway. A humorous title for a serious Haiku and follow-up message. The message this week is very good. I believe a MUST READ for all. A very popular Haiku this week. @PhantomGiggler

Sue Vincent (Author): Harper | Daily Echo. Don’t go Googling this one if you have an arachnid problem. Not that the Haiku mentions one but you somewhat make an assumption. Most excellent imagery of Haiku with the photo image matching perfectly. Hugely popular Haiku this week. Well worth a ReBlog! Click the Author link for Sue at Amazon and her many books. @SCVincent

jazzytower: Harp | Thoughts and Entanglements. I might would have titled this one Concerted Effort. 🙂

Daniel Schwamm: Love Came Down | Musing Life’s Mysteries. Second week in a row for the new guy. The title is mine but I believe the message of the Haiku inspired it, of course.

denis: sweet sounds | Haiku hound. A lesson of the Crimson Rosella parrot, with photos. Denis has been trained well. 😉

Jen (JK): The Sound Awakened | The Secret Keeper. A bit difficult to describe this one. And in that I think is a good thing. Go check it out and see what you think. @occultguardian

Swatiu: To See Clearly | imgrowing. This message is a huge one that relates very much to several articles I’ve written here on my own blog. Very nice.

Elusive: The Reiteration | Elusive Trope. Dwell to tell what may have fail. Make certain to read the philosophical exchange in the comments. I love it when a Haiku generates a discussion.

Sandra: Shadows | Wild Daffodil. Make certain to read BOTH Haiku. The first goes with the photograph for the Bluedaisy Weekly Photo Challenge that is linked to in her post. The second is more of a Haiku of joy with the word Harp. Remember, Wild Daffy is the queen of what I call Make the Most of Your Post.

Meredith & Martha: Vixen/Dwelling Place by Meredith and The Harpist/Contented Soul by Martha | Meredith’s Musings. All very beautiful ones this week…well maybe except for Vixen. That one is just too true to be beautiful. @Meredithlbl

Al: Multiple Message | Al the Author’s Blog. I saw politics in this one, not that I believe Al was going there. Just too much news for me of late. I normally don’t pay attention and will now revert to old habits. Check out Al and I engaging in a Haiku chat/battle in his comments. This old boy, moi, still has it. Word. @AlistairLane

Nato: Perfect Love | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. Four in one this week. A story told. @MichelleLunato

D.B. Mauldin (Author): Sweet Angel Mama’s Harpin’ | mama bear musings. Two Haiku in this one, I just created a title to include both. That second one I think a lot of people will laugh at from the honesty of it and being able to relate to it. Check out the Author link for offerings on Amazon and click HERE for the About page links to other online distribution such as Smashwords.

J Lapis:   River Music | DarkLight Harbor. Pure nature with this one. Great imagery. People are loving that last line.

Elizabeth: Music | Tea & Paper. Read the explanation of this one. AWESOME! I wish that were here. We have the old courthouse clock bell and i can hear it. @teandpaper

Jane Dougherty (Author): Soaring Love’s Melody | Jane Dougherty Writes. Two Haiku this week. As amazing as the words in the Haiku are this week, that painting by Franz Marc is one that will mesmerize. Multiple interpretations of what you might see.  Check out Jane’s books on Amazon at the Author link above. @MJDougherty33

Peter Bouchier: Sound or Music | Wherever I lay my pen, that’s my home. Great way his words flowed and the rhymes within the verses. And honestly my interpretation of it went great with his title. My comment explains what I Almost heard.

R. Todd: The Nagging Wife | A Flash of Fiction. I have to say, I’m not certain if my personal Haiku post had any influence on this one or not, but man did he nail it, or at least part of, as there were the two meanings in the Haiku. But seriously, this almost nailed it. 😀 

Janice: Tournier Morning | Ontheland NyMusical, lyrical, harpsical–What? That’s not a word? (I ask that because WP gives an error for it.) @ontheland1

VronLacroix: Harmonica | Simply Shanpshots. Ah, I see why she mentioned memories. A harmonica would do that. There are several in my home. I apparently even have a book and cd/dvd on how to play. Did I do it? Amnesia is not telling me, but my boy “B” has one too. 🙂

Steven: Lullaby and Gymnopédie I | Ramblings of a Drabbling Mind. Some of Steven’s experimental Haiku but also a traditional one with a bit of a music lesson. I always love a good twofer post. Haiku and learning. I wonder why I never do that?

Florence: It’s Clearly Love | Meanings And Musings. I had to have fun with this one. We’re good friends so whenever I can poke fun at her a little, Imma gonna do it. Not that this is really poking fun. She sort of did that to herself. Oops. Did I just spill the beans she was talking about herself in the Haiku? Muaahahahaha, or was she? 😉 (Can you tell I’ve hit the wall after about 6 hours straight of Review by this point?) @FTThum

Vashti Quiroz-Vega (Author):  Mellifluous Sounds | The Writer Next Door. It may sound odd but her Haiku brings to mind a novel I read a while back from an author involving angels. So I get a darker feel from this than what the words of the Haiku say. Check out Vashti on Amazon at the Author link above and you can see her interview by clicking HERE. @VashtiQV

Nagrij or (Greg Pierce) yeah, I snooped. (Author): Fate | Nagrij Writes the Hits You Never Knew Existed. Giving this one a think. This can be viewed as a pretty deep one depending on how one wishes to approach it. You can check out the list of books on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.

Ruby Manchanda: Clearly melodic | Whispering Thoughts. I like the take here on harp. A very insightful thought. I don’t mean my sentence but the Haiku.

E. Rawls (Author):  Colorful Season & Secret Garden | Rawls E. Fantasy. Ah, a bit of a whimsical fairy tale approach. Nice. Check out Bleeding Hearts, a collection of short stories, poems, and riddles, at Elizabeth’s Author page on Amazon by clicking the Author link above.  @VChronicles_

Becky G: Out of the Woods | Becky G? Oh, that’s me! The Woods Are Alive with sounds of . . . (Yeah, I worry about me too.)

Juliette: Short and Sweet | Battered Wife seeking Better Life. Whew, I thought for a minute there this was about to get personal, well in a me kind of personal way. But kudos to Juliette for taking the plunge. @BWseeingBL
