Pacing to Victory – A poem.

Pacing to Victory

Branches formed millennia past,
meant to divide but not in hate,
simply to stay a bloated fate.
Ignorance cause the blind to last.

Forging a road won’t be done fast,
not by force of arms, your lost face,
revenge ending in a lost chase.
Change comes through thought, grit, and patience,
not from those without commonsense.
This is no sprint… but a mixed race.

The Guidelines:

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) 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,
    • For syllables for each word, and different definitions, you use the definition that works 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.

Humanity’s Awakening – A poem.

Humanity’s Awakening

The state of things have human cause:
air that brings to us labored breath,
disease that brings us grievous death,
and famine from selfish jaws

To save ourselves we’re forced by laws:
learning to live in simpler ways,
ignoring the latest day’s craze.
Common sense needs to take control,
the mind of each comfortable soul,
and heed nature’s warnings always.

Spring Breaks the Heart – A poem.

Spring Breaks the Heart

Swing and sway in the winds of change,
keep in time to heart’s imminent fray.
The air filled with spring’s sweet bouquet,
and love’s last fling a brief exchange.

These deep chest aches are not so strange,
nor daily sights of pain’s relief,
stealing the heart just as a thief.
Once more enter the fool’s cold dance,
wrapped in a mask of true romance.
Your guess this time of just how brief?

Decima Challenge Poets Collected Image


EASTELMHURST.A.GO.GO | Larry Trasciatti:   Dystopia – eastelmhurst.a.go.go


http://www.engleson.ca  (Book purchasing sites on Author’s site Book Page)

Beginnings-Endings-Drollery to be Sure

In life, we must all play our part,
a lead role, yes, and sometimes less,
the second fiddle, I confess,
is where we must by default start.

Though a baby’s cry tugs the heart,
and often is the shriller voice,
a missive noting that it’s moist,
parents assume their rightful place,
caregiver, slave, best done with grace
and wit, as if there is much choice.

Vaccine Blues; A Decima (Decimated) Poem

This morn I stared at my ceiling,
didn’t feel the urge to arise,
heard the cat wail its hungry cries;
it gave me a guilty feeling.

Hanging in bed, quite appealing,
except for all my morning chores,
the cat, and sweeping a few floors,
making tea, toast, jam (apricot)
yet here I am, tied in a k n o t
got the vaccine blues: trapped indoors.

Chaotic Thoughts of Freedom – A poem.

Chaotic Thoughts of Freedom
Land of the living and the free,
with lips ziptied locked left and right?
Meanings formed in their own light’s sight.
Is this the home of liberty,
thoughts less of man than a bent knee?
We pick and choose the laws we like,
To hell with the rest, kill it… strike.
People’s tongues are tied up in k n o ts.
The First no longer calls the shots?
The US dies by high heeled spike.

How T—-‘s Mob Believed All His Lies and Fomented His Insurrection

From where I sit, my sinecure,
my respect for the Public Weal,
the rabid call to stop the steal,
was a sad coward’s last-ditch lure.

The antithesis of mature,
he stood before his acolytes,
accused foes of egregious slights,
and, indifferent to their fate,
counseled his mob to storm the gate
and overthrow fair voting rights.

Media Gold – A poem.

Media Gold
Innocent but cast a villain
calls for resolve, and nerves of steal.
Make plans to bring truth to the deal,
slaying lies like penicillin,
or St Valentine’s Day killin’.
A hit piece out picking cherries,
below the belt bruising berries.
Once a favorite of the trigger,
now clickbait for the gravedigger.
And the massed mind swings and varies.

Don’t Forget the Half | CSNelson:  A Spring to Forget

On the Passing of My Friend, Charan Gill

I think of that time as our spring,
some of us with a wealth of years,
others with knowledge in arrears,
yet each with compassion to bring.

A work unit on the upswing,
those too few days of comradeship,
shared goals, gone at too fast a clip,
and now with the passing of one
of us, that time again undone,
we watch another moment slip.

A WINTER Badge below.


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.

Click HERE for last week’s collected links for easy access to the poems of last week’s poets. (BARE and Full)

Click HERE. To learn about the new style I’ve created called Shi Rensa Haiku and how to write one, maybe even for the challenges.



An updated How to Write Haiku in English. that has just a little more detail and for knowledge and perhaps craft. And how to do a Pingback.

Useful Links.
Thesaurus: BITE, Teeth
Thesaurus.com
Merriam-Webster Dictionary

The Guidelines:

  1. Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) 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,
    • For syllables for each word, and different definitions, you use the definition that works 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.

Deep Winter Despair

This may be where I take my stand,
this late January morning.
Sad thoughts rising, the transforming
virus spreading throughout the land.

Yes, Covid-19, you expand
your reach, our touch, your air, our breath,
your drilling into our soul’s depth.
We are masked pawns. You do not care
a whit for you are everywhere
and we are left with loss, with death

Toward the Within:   Poetry | Wantin’ Only (Yourself) – Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge – Toward the within…


Two On A Rant::

Décima
She had loved once, innocence lost,
betrayed by his civility,
a man with an agility,
to throw her away without cost.

Outside window covered by frost,
mirrored the emotions inside
a woman unable to hide
her rapidly growing despair…
his child, abandoned without care,
two lives destroyed to save his pride.

Haiku
Hardships test our love,
Through the chill autumn season
into winter’s arms.
