Week #47 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Water & Bard.

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

Jennifer of The Secret Keeper: Okay, so I normally copy a bit from the about page of our new Haikumily members, but I didn’t even know what part to start with to share this time. Don’t understand what I mean. Well here‘s the link to the About Page and read for yourself. Quite an interesting series of thoughts. The Haiku: Water Bard. This one received some excellent reactions from our members. And the imagery given through the Haiku is an obvious reason why. It’s every writer’s wish. Check it out.



First to Enter this Week:

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Silence. Sometimes us poor saps read something and go like “Wha?” Not because we don’t understand but because we’re like “Whoa.” 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.



Juliet of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Checkmate.
Rarely rhapsodist’s
Rhymes roamed royals readily
Resembling rat rain.
@BWseekingBL

Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Hidden Inspiration. Perfect combination of Haiku and image this week. Didn’t even need the image but when you read the words, get the image in your head, then see the image used and they are about the same? Nailed it.

Annette Rochelle Aben: Much Ado About Haiku From the Haiku to the follow-up paragraph, Annette went all in this week. Although she resorted to name calling. Very sad I am. Sniff sniff. First, she’s a published author, and you can visit her Amazon Author page here. One of those books has included a51kogY33IrL._UY250_s 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.

Meredith of Meredith’s Musings: Pure and Trial Very nice. Trial was a surprise. I hadn’t really thought along those lines.

Martha of Meredith’s Musings: The Bard and Traveling Minstrel Awww, she wrote about me in the first one. Alas, I no longer can be identified with the second one.

clickerwriter of Captured by Aishwarya: The Chaotic Poet I guess I should be happy I made a more challenging prompt. 🙂 But no watering eyes.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  Uninspired. I prefer milk myself. 🙂 

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Poetry In Motion. At first I thought she had done a autobiographical Haiku. Pure as Water. As Elizabeth said “Romantic.” @BediMona

Melissa Barker-Simpson of Melissa Barker-Simpson (Author)Charmed by a Witch. Ah, we get to connect with one of her characters. Melissa is an author of numerous books so make sure to visit her Author Page on Amazon here.

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Uisge Beatha…  You know, there is a humor here, as it is supposed to be but I’m not certain if the humor I am thinking is the intent. After all, I have that damaged cranium. But this did have a lively water quality to it.

Al of Al the Author: Banned Poetry! Yes, I said it. And yes it was so punny it was that bad-painful. I literally shook my head in shame. And remember the following is all in fun. The host of the challenge has to step up at times and show he’s got game as well.
Al is a poet
His words dance and flow forth,
Like water through steel.

And now for a second entry The Tragedies and The Comedies.
Alistair the bard
His false tongue dost spew poison,
More than all Nile worms.

Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes: Enchantment and Sea Wolves. Okay this woman just tells stories with her three lines. Seriously. She’s one of those new people to the community that helps push us to that next spot, gives us a challenge to creativity. 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.

Clarence Holm of PrairieChat: Siren’s SongLampoon. Twilight. That first one nailed it. And the other two humorous ones are enjoyable as well. Nice to see a different kind of humor, somewhat of an more cerebral type of thing here. As opposed to my usual in your face things.

Janni Styles of JanniStyles1 Bard Water. Okay I have to say this was a very direct use of the words and I loved it. I never even thought about it this way but once reading this Haiku it was a big DUH moment for me. Excellent. A MUST READ.

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Diamonds. There are two this week. The second one was humorous in the truth of it, when one considers what the a bard was back in the old days. The image used was perfect for the challenge and of course we get to see some more of TJ’s great photography of his travels.

Rajani of THOTPURGE: Water Bard.  Hmm, a lesson of sorts given in the Haiku itself, as I found in the comments section. Shows you find out things by reading everything. Often times I enjoy the comments of a Haiku as much as the Haiku itself because of the exchanges between everyone. Some are hilarious at times. So happy to have this one included in the jumble. MUST READ.

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: Tears are. Holy Haibun Batman. Guys, I know I get excited and say MUST READ at times, well usually only a couple of times a review. I’ll be honest in this case, MUST READ doesn’t do it justice. This is possibly one of my all time favorites…no it is one of my all time favorites. This is why I’ve kept this challenge going for almost one year without a week skipped, even when I was in the hospital.  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: Fresh. Three this week. I’ll quote “And, I just can’t stop”.  Sandra has been an enthusiastic part of this challenge for a long time now and especially the community of it and thus I wanted to give a little shout out to another growing community Sandra is a part of and one in which you can actually combine with the Haiku Challenge. It’s run through Blue Daisyz and it’s 52 Weeks of Photos. The great thing about this one is there is already a list of all 52 of the challenges at that link provided in blue. No, not the word Blue but the color blue. 🙂 I had to do that. Also our own Aran Island Girl is part of the photo challenge as well. I would say you could kill two challenges with one post but I don’t think that comes out quite right.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams: View of the Rain. OOOOOO, that second one, oh my. My jaw dropped. Awesome. How many bards would be burned by that? Visit Michelle Lunato Photography as well. @MichelleLunato

Olga of Stuff and what if…Shreds. First of all…AWESOME that all the new people from last week are now officially back this week. YAY!!!! Okay, I’m good now. Guys, this one. Another burn moment. Burn means as in, oh you like really got up in someone’s grill on this one. o,O I know, people are wondering about what that means. o,O  is my say what or huh? or whoa look in text form. 🙂 But you have to go read this one.

SW ysobel of Spunky Wayfarer(Shanty of a young Celt) Great explanation of this one in a follow-up paragraph. I love follow-up paragraphs that give a bit of insight. This one will send you to google searching for words that are new and fascinating. Ruth and the Spunky one were on the same wave length I think. @SpunkyWayfarer

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Nonsense. Hmm. Trying to get inside of Elizabeth’s mind on this one and then I looked at my image. Um, and decided perhaps I would go with that as an interpretation. Actually it gives me an idea about a challenge in the future, so blame Elizabeth if I do it. 🙂 @TeandPaper

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: Water bard. “I sorta got silly.” A quote from the good doctor with her link in the comments. Imagine her getting silly in a Haiku. The only question is, am I smart enough to get it. Let’s find out. Oh my goodness. She did get silly, and I do mean silly. 🙂 Ha. If I were a patient I would be soooo scared after reading this one to go to her. I mean, the way that mind works.

Chennai of Twisted Tales on Life: Three this week. Water under the bridge. Kind of think of Taylor Swift with this one. Well sort of. I actually like Swifty for the most part. And this Haiku says a whole lot. I really like it. Read this one and then take a moment to think about  it. A MUST READ.

Prakash of It’s PH:   Barded out. Funny. 🙂 But oddly relaxing in some way. I can’t explain it. But there is an imagery in that first line for me that kind of sends me to a place. @itsPhTweet

Sarah of tuckedintoacorner: The Riverside Bard. ooooo Pretty. Kind of funny how this one and the previous one both give me similar images but are completely different. Awesome how that works out.

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Occasional Treat. Oh…my…word. Guys, you have to go see this one. For a man that was stumped I am so thrilled he kept at it and did some research. If I had a most original Choice award it would go to Greg this week. AWESOME!!!! Some might say this one is humorous but I take it seriously. Yum.  @greg_wolford 

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: Empty Heart.  Great the way this one stays with the theme of the blog. Excellent. Autobiographical as well. Props to you on this one.

Serins of Serins Sphere: Fair Sun. An excellent entry this week. She gives a background to it as well. I have to say this is probably one of the best I’ve seen on her blog, well as in the use of something existing and giving it a twist to show her creativity. A MUST READ @SerinsSphere

Colleen of Silver Threading: A Bard Full of Water. Hmm, I get it. I like how some use water to represent something else. At least that is what I am doing in my interpretation of this one. @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.

Mari T. of Overcoming Static: Across the Water. Love the imagery of this one. You know, I hadn’t given it thought but I wonder if I chose water this week because water is one of my favorite calming environments? The ocean is something amazing to me, although I haven’t been there in probably seven years. But oh well, I took a stand for something I believed in and I can live without an ocean for a few years as long as my son has the best life he can. Sorry for the moment there.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Tweet Tweet and The Tragic Bard’s Tale. Very interesting. That second one was most telling and hit home in a way. Also I liked the explanations while they still allowed me to have my own interpretations.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: No Oasis. Deep. Have to say that. Well, yes it kind of goes with some lines in the Haiku but it’s a deep thinking Haiku. Love those thinky Haiku. Haiku that can either make you stop and wonder for a moment or can make you burst into laughter are the best. Awesome.

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Wellspring I had to think for a time about naming this one, two actually. Yes, Florence wrote two this week. I gave them this name because of what Florence gives of herself through her writing. I’m not saying she is what is in the Haiku but she must tap into something to convey those feelings on the level she does. I think she’s one of our most under appreciated poets. Partly because she’s just so smart people think she can do things. She can’t twerk. 🙂 Ask her daughter. @FTThum

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Peaceful Music. Oh, very nice. And very true as well. That last formed sentence is awesome. Loved it. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.  

Becky G of Becky G? Oh, That’s Me!: Rhythmic Tinkling. Good rhyming in this one and I suddenly need to head to the restroom.

Angie Lin of Muddied Thoughts: Weary. Really liked how this one came together. Some of you may have missed out on this one. In fact I know you did because this one should have a ton of likes on it. MUST READ.

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Ebb and Flow. An ode of sorts to the Bard himself. 🙂 Strange words indeed. Muahahahaha.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Requiem and Size Doesn’t Matter. Um, did anyone else have their mind go way off kilter there for a moment? Whew. I just read them. They were exactly what I thought they would be. (Maniacal laugh, Maniacal laugh.) That was for all you Muppet movie fans out there. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordPurge you Heart. There are two Haiku in this post. The first one you see and then you get to read some very interesting thoughts. Then at the bottom of the post is a second Haiku. I mostly agree with the post itself and oddly I think this would fit in with a theme I have going here on the blog. @girally

And the Closing Haiku:

The heart of a bard

Wandering through agonies,

By loves waters cleansed.


Much Love, Much Success, and Much Respect,

Ronovan

Ronovan Writes Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge 46 Review

challenge46-Rev

The image for the challenge came across a bit creepy and Halloweenish so I decided to go with something that I think is a bit brighter and fresher.

If you don’t see your Haiku below, I went in search of the regular members but didn’t see any Haiku for some this week, but I did find a few that didn’t show on the Challenge Post in any form. Remember if you don’t us the ping back link, make sure to leave a link to your Haiku in comments on the original Challenge post for the week that is published on Monday.

Week #46 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Think & Fresh.

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.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

Melissa Barker-Simpson of Melissa Barker-Simpson (Author): “I am a mother, and a writer; an interpreter, and a geek. I am an introvert, and a drama queen; kind, and stubborn; intelligent and down to earth. I enjoy to connect with the blogging community and chat about a myriad of subjects. I keep my author site separate, but if you would like to visit and learn more about my published works, please click here. The Haiku: Okay there were several Haiku. Trying to come up with a name for them is a bit difficult. Hmm. Revealed Thoughts. As Melissa mentions in her about blurb she is an author and make sure to visit her Author Page on Amazon here.

Janni Styles of JanniStyles1: “When I announced to my first grade teacher, “I know what I want to do when I grow up – I want to make books!” – I had no idea what lay ahead. ~From her Glimpse Page. The Haiku: Think Fresh. Hmm, I am trying to image that image. That would be interesting to see.

Olga of Stuff and what if…: Gotta like that blog name. I mean seriously, isn’t that what blogs really are anyway? I am a mom/retired teacher/artist/writer and an aspiring photographer. I love those surprise moments in everyday life that twinkle and call us to take a quick shot.”~From her About Page. The Haiku: Refreshing. A very good message, one I often write about here on Ronovan Writes. Definite worth a MUST READ



First to Enter this Week:

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Passing Spring. The follow-up sentence puts the words into context a bit. Makes perfect sense.



Serins of Serins Sphere: Blogging on the Brain. Well it’s true! I mean go read and you’ll see. @SerinsSphere

Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Food for Thought. It’s the only title that could speak for this Haiku.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  Impressing You and Hay Fever and Cold Tea. Yes, you are seeing three haiku. Nice to see the words this week are inspiring if not a bit sneezifying. Last week they caused her Horror. 

ladyleemanilla: Three this week. Fresh Five. Five Haiku, thus the name. With such a range of topics used, not much I can say or I would be here forever. 🙂 Go read them yourself you lazy bums. Muahahahaaha. It’s only the 6th entry and I am already losing my mind?

Meredith of Meredith’s Musings: Krispy Kreme Donuts and More? Hmm, if you combined these two it would most definitely make for an interesting moment. Use your imaginations. Okay, don’t use them that hard. I just realized how bad some of you could get.  

Angie Lin of Muddied Thoughts: Signals. Have to like this one. This one made me kind of pause and think, when and how did she come up with it. Not a complicated Haiku, but I like the message of it in the simplicity and calmness of it. Very nice.

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Not Mint Candies. My image apparently inspired some Halloween thoughts. I can see that. Was afraid of that actually, but then people get what they get. Just like Elizabeth did in this Haiku. 🙂 @TeandPaper

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Lost Forever. OOOOo, a thinky one. I really need to come up with more upbeat words. Well I did but then I made that spooky image. Fresh and Young.  Yay, upbeat. I think. I like the message of this one. A very good advice one. MUST READ @BediMona

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Fresh. Okay, now this one seriously has a message. And I think depending on your stage in life both age and relationship experience, this one could speak volumes. Excellent Advice Haiku. MUST READ. 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Becky G of Becky G? Oh, That’s Me!: Fresh Start. Fresh start of what. You know as I wrote the title I knew what I was thinking and of course me being me I thought other things, which I left in the comments of the Haiku.

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Wisdom. Most excellent here. Combined a photo and the Haiku challenges. I love it when people do that. This one worked out well.

Sarah of tuckedintoacorner: Fresh. OOOO. What story lies behind this one. Hmm. We want more.

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: Bread. Okay, just looking at the title I like this one already, now to see what it’s about. And it did not fail. 🙂 But was I thinking food or money? Hmm. What do you think Steve wrote about?  Simplicity Lane is free, go here for where you can get it.  Through a Stranger’s Eyes here and Résumé for Love for free here.

Al of Al the Author: Out of his depth and Two become one become…. Two of them for Al’s second week in. And that second one seems to have sparked some interest that I agree. I like the way it flows. The rhythm of it. It makes you say it a certain way which I think is a big part of why I like it. Al gave us more! As in Four

SW ysobel of Spunky Wayfarer(A zombie dilemma) Hmm, thinking about this one. Wondering if this is before, after or during the Haiku. If during, I would like to see the action of the zombie. Now that would be funny. @SpunkyWayfarer

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams: I Forget I Am Alone. Long form Haiku, as I like to call it. This one touched someone to the point of a conversation beginning in the comments. Isn’t that an accomplishment you want from your writing? Great job. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography as well. @MichelleLunato

Martha of Meredith’s Musings: Healthy Mind and The Flirt I am trying to determine the meaning of that second one. I think it’s aimed at me but still trying to get the exact meaning. Think I done been put in my place. Me? A flirt? Never.

Annette Rochelle Aben: I like it fresh What does Annette like fresh? Um, you’ll have to read cause I don’t repeat things like that here. Some might run in fear. I have failed to mention some things about Annettte. First, she’s a published author, and you can visit her Amazon Author page here. One of those books has included a51kogY33IrL._UY250_s 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.

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Robin’s Song. Not sure what the Bee Gees have to do with the Haiku prompts but anyway. Okay, so maybe I’m pulling your chain. Or something like that.   @greg_wolford 

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Regrets. Hmm, another nature reflecting emotional ones in my eyes I think. Okay, so the title Regrets sort of puts that out there too but the words of the Haiku in a seasonal way lead you in that direction.

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Season Sighs. You know, I am torn between that fresh part cause of my hot nature and the later part. I mean, I wish it were like in the low 70s year round with a slight breeze I think. Imagine being allergic to the heat and the sun. It’s a lot of fun.

Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes: Remember and Return. That’s right, two of them. Woman is a romantic. 🙂 Read her Amazon Author Page Bio to see if any of that has an influence, just don’t get too jealous. You’ll get jealous, just seriously, try not to go overboard. 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.

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Afternoon Nap  Adorable. That’s pretty much all you can say. That, or nightmare, depending on your own state at the time.

Clarence Holm of PrairieChat: Influence. That last sentence formed-I have to say I like that a lot, especially that last line. Depending on ones imagination you could see a person do having so many facial reactions with that. Great prompt for a flash fiction challenge I would think. And here is another one! Freshened Up. Had a difficult time naming this one. Very interesting subject and way of phrasing. Very enjoyable. One more from Clarence: Pepe Le Scent. Okay, can you just like know where this is going? I haven’t even read it yet and I have a feeling it stinks. 🙂 Okay, this man’s thoughts travel along trails few dare venture. To Pew or not to Pew, that is the question. Dare we Love or Dare we Fear? Phew the Pew. (Okay, I’m done. He inspired my insanity for a moment. Blame Clarence.)

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: Think fresh. I’m almost scared to look. This lady has a way with words that has me sitting and staring for a while trying to follow the trail to how she got to where she ended up. Now to go see what she did this time. If you do a search of the name mentioned in the post you will find some wonderful works. I did, of course. Someone gets creativity through DNA it seems.

Katsyarina of LifeRaduga: 5 Haiku. So that’s the number of Haiku she did. Sue me for being so unoriginal. Interesting assortment this week. I couldn’t have come up with a title to encompass all of them if I had tried. Really went in different places from each other with them. Nice.

Josue Mapagdalita (pen name: Sueju Takeshi) of Takeshi’s Flight: Refreshed Wounds. Dude, this really hits. You read this and you are like instantly thrown into a place.

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Love Doctor  I at first titled this one Ronovan, but I thought people might take it seriously. So I came up with my pseudonym instead. I mean a different title instead. Does it have anything to do with the Haiku? Well, depends on how you look at it, although in this case I don’t think so, but with Florence I can have fun with titles. After all, she literally lives half a world away. And actually, guys, it’s as great Haiku. Seriously. @FTThum

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Boxed Out. Again, I thought of calling this one Ronovan, amazing, huh? So many people writing about me. Sigh. So little time. So…wait, what am I talking about. Make sure to read the Haiku and the great link included. Great suggestions there that go along with the message of the Haiku. Lots of comments on this Haiku post. And oddly enough, I’ve done every one of them.  Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Mari T. of Overcoming Static: Suddenly. You know, I actually bought a book about this very topic way back when. Best money I may have ever spent, or so I have been told.

Juliet of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Tick Tock. Gotta love how the prompt words make one think. This one goes along with the mood of recent Haiku from our fair Juliet. (Not her real name. I think it’s actually like Taylor Swifty Perry but don’t quote me on it. And yes, I expect retaliation for that at some point.) @BWseekingBL

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: Think Before You Act.  Ha, love it.

Colleen of Silver Threading: A New Day. I think she is conflicted here. One she has an addiction wants to sate and another she, well I think she has two of them she needs to take care of. @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.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Waking Up and Which One. A fantasy world in both Haiku. One would make you sooooo sick. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Marjorie of KyrosmagicaFresh Men. So there are two humorous offerings this week. Um. I have to say, quite interesting. That second one. I just can’t find the words. MUST READ  

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: New New. Very nice. Good message. Structure. And honestly, the Haiku actually makes me think of the author herself.

Patty of Strawberries Forever: I Can’t Win Oh how many of you will know this feeling. Excellent use of the prompt words and way way out of the box. Super original.

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Freshly Pressed. No, not that kind of freshly pressed. I think there is a blog thing called that, but this isn’t about that. @MinKhor

Melissa of The Aran Artisan: Think Fresh or Lose the Plot. Hee Hee Hee. I’m laughing at the title. You know when you are of a mind one way and then you read and you go, “Well duh, it’s this person writing.” Yeah, that’s what this one is. Very good post. Informative on a subject and you get a story of sacrifice to gain. @thearanartisan

 

ronovan-writes-serious-haiku-badge

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Love Doctor A great Haiku. Seriously. @FTThum


 

ronovan writes humor haiku badge

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Fresh Men. That second one actually got me. I have to say I don’t actually laugh often but I am still chuckling at this one.


My one own Haiku this week was Night Thoughts.

And the Closing Haiku:

Set up a fresh goal

For you to achieve greatness,

You must think greatness.


Much Respect,

Ronovan

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge 45 Review

challenge45

For those of you wondering, the image above was time pitching love and it bouncing off the walls into the void where the heart is in the figure above the clock.

Missing a lot of our Haiku Family this week. Don’t you love this time of year? Sarcasm much?

Week #45 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Pitch & Time.

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.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

Jane Dougherty of Jane Dougherty Writes: “Finding the time to write has always been the major problem. Children have been the inspiration and the incentive to write. They have also been the main obstacle. Now they are old enough to fend for themselves, and despite the growing numbers of feline and canine time-consumers, I have the luxury of some time to myself.”~From her About Page. The Haiku: Crow Black. OOOO, nice one. Great imagery, even if the painting had not been included. GMCFinal Version lgeExcellent. Not surprising all things considered. 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.   Here we are with another one from our new member. Cleansed. Okay, this one is awesome. Loving it. I am not sure why I should be surprised. I said that earlier, I know, but she’s a poet and author of novels. I mean for real. A lot of depth in this one. MUST READ.

Donna of Homemade Naturally: “Life is FUN! Life is a JOURNEY! This is my journey into a more natural healthier life!Journeys are to be shared. To learn from. To enjoy. I am a mature happy, sometimes witty woman with many different journeys under her belt. “~From her About.Me bio.  And we need to thank Ritu for guiding Donna our way. The Haiku: I Cannot Pitch. She made some fans with this one. Some of our Haiku family dropped in and loved it and supported her and some giggled. Yes, they actually typed giggle. I swear it. And as one said “Rules schmules! Fun is more important.” Everyone go read and enjoy! That last part was me not a quote from our or Aran Island Rebel.

Clarence Holm of PrairieChat: “As an avowed couch potato, what little time he has off the pillows is devoted to a few hobbies including, computers, electronics, woodworking and day dreaming. He is married and the father of four daughters all old enough to realize dad doesn’t have all the answers.”~From his About Page. (You know, I bet they wonder why I pick what I do to share here.) The Haiku: Fiery Rain. I had been waiting for this one. I was wondering if someone would use pitch in this manner and awesome!

Al of Al the Author: “This blog will be a record of my writing “journey”, living a life of rhyme, trying to write (and get published…) picture book texts that are fun to share, and make both adults and children smile.”~From his About Page. The Haiku: Love’s Case. Nicely done. I think all will enjoy it. I hope you were helped back up.   Three more from Al this week. Pitchforks at Dawn, Love Begins? and Love denied. Like that last one, Love Denied a lot. And love the title Pitchforks at Dawn.

Angie Lin of Muddied Thoughts: Excellent blog title, don’t you think?i am: a second-gen. chinese, a nondenominational christian, angie-lina practicer of mediocrity, a crap singer/not-so-crap pianist, a decent anime artiste, a stubborn optimist, former weeb trash, and an insatiable lover of pie.”~From her About Page. The Haiku: Time Stops. Nice one here, guys. Great structure. Two great images. The first and second could read as one or separate. Well worth a visit to say hi. As for that image of her profile picture. If she drew that, AWESOME! I am jealous. Unfortunately no Twitter Handle for this lady. Bummer that.

Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns: Yes, you read that right. Do we even have to go any further? I mean, can it get cooler than that title? Runaway Nuns and Leprechauns… an odd name for a blog or what? We’d actually prefer it to be known as a peaceful, magical and mystical spot. It’s a spot where you can stop in for a daily dose of love and laughter sprinkled with a bit of chaos, confusion and lunacy. You can get great recipes and cooking tips, as well as drilling and building ideas. Who does that? Who knows their way around the kitchen and around the tool shed?”~From the About Page. (If you have difficulty reading the about page, just hilight it and it’s a lot clearer. Cool information. The Haiku: Pitch. Interesting. I like that use of time. There is a word in there that is cool.

Katsyarina of LifeRaduga: “I am a poetess with poetry in my blood and heart made of rhymes. Here I will write whatever I feel like. My path. My life. Me. My poetry.”~From her About Page. The Haiku: Eyes of the Storm. I like how this one, although with two different sentences could be one and have an emotional element throughout. I think Katsyarina is new to the challenge but I’ve seen her around for so long I am not sure but I’m putting her here just in case.

 



First to Enter this Week:

Juliet of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Finish Line. She made it first this week. And of course this would be the week she doesn’t have it as an individual post that I can reblog!!!!! Grrrr. Say La Vee. La Vee. @BWseekingBL



Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Love For Hire. Very nice. I like the way nature is included but with a hint of intrusion of man.

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Time Knows. A very well done message in this one. I really like the thought put into this one. The interpretations could really go anywhere as the comments show. @TeandPaper

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Time Suspended. I am liking the different uses of the words this week. Definite good use of pitch. I liked that one.

Becky G of Becky G? Oh, That’s Me!: In His Time. Good one for a Sunday read for certain.

Annette Rochelle Aben: Perfect Timing Okay, good advice for authors out there or perhaps those asking for a date.

ladyleemanilla: Three this week. Kind of Pitchy Dawg. Had a flashback to American Idol. Sowwy.

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Help. I so don’t believe this one. Impossible. I think it must all be in her mind. Time Will Tell.  Hmm. Well if you would lower your standards a bit. 🙂 @BediMona

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…:  Horror. You know, if my challenges are that horrifying. Hrmph. That’s all I’m saying. Hrmph. 

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: The Pitch. I spent many years doing this kind of thing. Did very well. And now here I am at about 3 AM on a Sunday morning doing Haiku Reviews. Hmm. Wonder which one I prefer.   @greg_wolford 

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Sing Your Heart Out and Keep Climbing.  Wonder if Colleen has read this one yet? She would like that first one for sure. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Sarah Brentyn of Lemon Shark ReefCheating. Well there is a title to make you wonder. Now to read it. Ah, there are two. Wow, that first one kind of can put a weight on the heart depending on how you read it and the second one is excellent for authors. Cool.

Sarah of tuckedintoacornerTune. An interesting thought. I do suppose it would be odd to stop. Wonder what the reaction would be. Fortunately for our Review this one came in on time. We missed out on her Sources Haiku. You can check that one out while you are visiting her blog for this one. It’s from May 11th under the Poetry category.

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Pitch, Time and Middle. Two actually. Love the image used. Goes so well with both Haiku. Actually gives a bit more meaning overall to the story told in the two Haiku. Very nice.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: 2 This week. One Humor and One Serious. Boot Loot? and Theft. Thievery seems to be the theme here. Never thought of that. That second one is most definitely a serious one. One I never would have thought to put into a Haiku.  

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams:  The Pitch I Should Have Dropped. She was worried about breaking a rule by finishing her story with additional Haiku? Seriously? More Haiku a problem? Oh, Nato, you poor thing. More Haiku the more better.  And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: Some of Your Time. Nice rhyming here. Good structure. Very cool.

Geoff Le Pard of TanGentalComprehension. Hmm, a thought provoking one here. Can be applied to many things. Really like it.  Go to Amazon to get Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle. I don’t know who Sherry is but I mean what’s she doing with the dead flies? But yeah, click here for Amazon UK and here for the US. @geofflepard

SW ysobel of Spunky Wayfarer(Biodegradable hat) and (Happy Camper) I am so not making these names up for these Haiku. But sure does sound like me. Great compliment made to the Haiku family in this post. Very good member. @SpunkyWayfarer

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Perfect. Wonder if a movie was watched before this was written. Think one was just released that may have inspired the use of the word Pitch in the challenge as a prompt word this week. @MinKhor

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Use by Date. Um, at first I had like two thoughts here at the title. Now I will read and see what happens. OOOO, burn. Someone got told on this one. 🙂 Very nice.

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Sensuous Loving…Memories No, not my title for once. She actually gave this one a name herself. Read it and interpret it for yourself. I’ll leave this one to you guys this week. I have two thoughts on it. Conflicting ones so can’t really grab onto one to share. @FTThum

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: The Devil’s Fork. This woman has one unique mind about things. I gotta say that. Fork it all as she might say.

Colleen of Silver Threading: Lingering Fragments. Kind of a touchy feely one this week. 🙂  @ColleenChesebro  Also remember to drop by the LWI site and read Colleen’s Book Reviews. She is excellent. Click here to see everything she’s written.

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Illusion. Very nice. Good use of the prompts. I want to say she challenged herself with her overall word usage and giving us a visual illusion with her line lengths. 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Wendy Anne Darling of Silver Lightning: Deadlines. I get the feeling of deadlines from this author. I gave the title to the Haiku based on that feeling. But I think we can all identify with it. Remember Wendy is one of our Authors. Get Silver Lightning Volume One at Amazon by clicking here.

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: The Pitch.  OOOOO, liked this one. Another one of those in your face dude types. 🙂

Melissa of The Aran Artisan: Okay, the name of the post is In The Middle Of A Pot In The Middle Of The Day but I’m going to call the Haiku itself  Time Out. Why? Well you’ll have to read it and I think you’ll get it. My mind isn’t that warped. Okay, maybe it is but I at least try to make my made up titles make sense. @thearanartisan

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: Words Defy. A pretty cool message in this one. And it is very true.  Simplicity Lane is free, go here for where you can get it.  Through a Stranger’s Eyes here and Résumé for Love for free here.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Divine Melody. A peek inside her mind while she works on her latest novel?  Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Mari T. of Overcoming Static: Pitching Time. This one can have some deep meaning depending on where your mind is at. Wow. I am thinking relationships as I read it. Odd, I know, but there you go.

Patty of Strawberries ForeverFear in the Dark A bit frightening, but then it’s supposed to be. And one many people probably will understand, unfortunately. 

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Soul Harmony. Oooo, a thinky one. I like it. 🙂 Make sure to check out her blog for real. I like how she talks about her book signing experience under her Book Related section. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.

I pitch a few thoughts

About worldly happenings,

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge 44 Review

Featured Image -- 91117

For those of you wondering, the character in the center is my creation for the word Lovers. The previous weeks was a Chinese character that meant love or could be lovers, but I chose not to reuse, and created my own instead. No, not a bunny ears thing, that’s a pair of lovers with their heads on the shoulder of the  other and forming a heart of sorts. You can figure out the rest for yourself.

Missing a lot of our Haiku Family this week. Don’t you love this time of year? Sarcasm much?

Week #44 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Charge & Lovers

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.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

Mari T. of Overcoming Static: “trying all things fiction to overcome the static of life. being a haiku fiend at this time.”~From the About Page. The Haiku: The Full Moon. Nice. Thinking here. Not one that should require me to think a lot. Straight forward but there is something about it that makes the mind wander around it a little bit. I like it.



First to Enter this Week:

Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Love For Hire. A bit telling if you think about it. Shame shame shame. The thoughts to come to ones mind when given words. I was thinking of a spark between lovers when I came up with charge. But I have to say, it is fun seeing what people come up with.



Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Coming in only 7 minutes after Edwina, man, this must have been an easy pair of words. Lovers. OOOO, she always comes up with some good ones. Queen Bee is Mira’s other blog submission this week. Submission? I just read Ritu’s Haiku and I think she’s influenced my thinking here. This one is kind of sad really. Never thought about it this way before. @BediMona

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: One. Okay, I think she got thinky on me here. Hmm, but thinking as I do, I shall not give my definition of umm, things stated. 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Annette Rochelle Aben: Golden. I might be saying oooo a lot this week. Perhaps I will just go ahead and say assume an oooo from now on and it will save me some typing.

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: Why Charge Lovers?. A good question, with a good reason behind it and of course does give an answer, but one even he doesn’t really like. GRRRR, business!

ladyleemanilla: Three this week. Ahhh, Young “Love”.. Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with a title for these Haiku, but I enjoy it. Three this week and in a way they are all connected.

Serins of Serins Sphere: Blood runs cold. Apparently into vampires. @SerinsSphere

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Penny Lost. A bit odd of a name but I came up with it for a reason. It goes with the image and actually with the Haiku as well. @TeandPaper

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordNot Charge Enough. Four this week! I think the prompt words charged her up. 🙂 Her creativity that is. Geesh people. @girally

Meredith of Meredith’s Musings: Nature and Rescue. I’m thinking the second Haiku is in response to her having ventured too close in the first Haiku. 🙂 I a sure there are a lot of rescuers lined up.  @Meredithlbl

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…: Two this week.  50 Shades and Sentence. ooooo, see I said it and was trying not to. Ritu going all in charge on us in that first one, or is she? Hmm. You have to read to find out. Am I teasing? Okay, far enough with that. And wasn’t even intentional. 🙂 That second was is great. 

Martha of Meredith’s Musings: My Need and Hold Your Horses. Ha, I like her question for me at the beginning. Great advice given here. People need to read and learn.  @Meredithlbl

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Love. So last weeks review of Sandra’s Haiku was a bit odd. I think I didn’t delete something in there and it was confusing. This week, let’s see if I do better. Two Haiku this week. Lot of hand holding going on. That second one works well for sure. The opposite meanings of the two sentence structure really brings out something. Really cool shell art she did.

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: 2 This week. One Humor and One Serious. Cash Desk Woes and Lover’s Staff. She’s a guilty woman. Um, her words, not mine. Go find out why.  

Prakash of It’s PH:   Busted!. I wonder if this is autobiographical? 🙂 Hmm. @itsPhTweet

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: To The End. A story of love and end and continuance really.   @greg_wolford 

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Sparks I think there is a Haiku but I was a bit taken with the image used. Took me a while to figure out the parts. I must be getting old. Oh, wait, it’s the amnesia. I don’t remember certain things. Oh, the life of a 40 something year old virgin.
@FTThum

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: Charging With Hope. At first when I saw this title I thought of credit cards and hope of money to pay them off. Then I read the Haiku. In a way, it still fits. 🙂 Although I don’t believe that is the intent.

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Through It All. Interesting. Sorry if I’m a little slim on my reviews for the next few poets. This is my first one after about 2 hours sleep. Could be dangerous. I hope you read typonese. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.  

SW ysobel of Spunky Wayfarer(oh well) Oooookay. Clicked to hear how the Haiku ‘sounded’. I am now slightly disturbed. Not what I was expecting. Very odd sounding voice. @SpunkyWayfarer

Chennai of Twisted Tales on Life: Three this week. For My Ex Lover. Three this week. Hmm. I think a situation that is probably more common than not if people are willing to admit. Some people are just not willing to give it all and accept it all. Commit or not. That is the question. Just so you know, men have issues. It takes years for some to get it, and some just never understand.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams:  Lost Love. Well, you did skip a week of Haiku so I mean I guess  things wane a little. But really, strangers? Come on. After knowing me, how could you ever forget me? And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato

Colleen of Silver Threading: Dark Lovers. First up, new look to her blog. I like her previous look, I think because of how much of a header you could see and that was entertaining to me. But you have to try new things at times. I’ve thought about doing it, but it can be a pain if the themes are not compatible. Now for the Haiku. Uh oh, say it isn’t so. Ron in the doghouse? Just kidding, we all know that’s not possible. And I mean her Ron, not me Ron. I know, it confuses me at times. @ColleenChesebro  Also remember to drop by the LWI site and read Colleen’s Book Reviews. She is excellent. Click here to see everything she’s written.

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Sweet Embrace. Very nice. I really enjoyed this one. MUST READ. @MinKhor

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Baby Take Your Time. I got to choose the title this week. As I read the Haiku and then thought, a song lyric came to mind. Below is the song. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Love’s Time. An interesting message. Still thinking about it. Kind of deep for me after so little sleep. I think all should go read and see what you think.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Open Hearts. In a way I think she and I had similar takes on this, even with different Haiku. Very nice.

Melissa M of This, right now: Ceasefire. Very interesting imagery here. I can see this one. I like that second line a lot.

Juliet of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: The Knight & The Damsel. Hmm. Bravely moving forward with love. I got it. @BWseekingBL

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: Who’s In Charge.  Ah, good message. Very true. Surprised after reading so many but not sure why as was staying with theme of blog.

 

ronovan-writes-serious-haiku-badge

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Sweet Embrace. Very nice. I really enjoyed this one. @MinKhor


 

ronovan writes humor haiku badge

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: 2 This week. One Humor and One Serious. Cash Desk Woes. She’s a guilty woman. Um, her words, not mine. Go find out why.


And the Closing Haiku:

Charge the gates of Hell

Searching for that only one,

Lovers are worth time.


Much Respect,

Ronovan

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge 43 Review

source-shadow-borderFor those of you wondering, the character in the center is the Chinese character for love or lovers, depending on context. For the challenge I used it in relation to my example Haiku and the source being love.

Week #43 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Want & Tatters

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.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

Oliana of Traces of the Soul: “Hello and Welcome to Traces of the Soul where I try to Whisper Insights.  This is a place to let ideas, thoughts, reflections and insights flow.  Some posts may be my sharing events in my life and other times just reflections…an idea stirring and has to get out.  I use a pseudonym here so I can freely write whatever crosses my mind.  I have another blog where I am the “public me” but that comes with restrictions that do not bind me at Traces of the Soul.”~From her Welcome page. I’m putting her in our New This Week because I am a touched confused about things. I think she has participated but you guyes know me. So playing it safe.  Source of JoyA very good and timely one for this time.

Becky G of Becky G? Oh, That’s Me!: “How I wish that this world, could be a beautiful and safe passageway for us all.”~From her About page. A WHOLE LOT MORE there but I liked that one line best. The Haiku: Stuck. I think that title and the Haiku pretty much matches us all.

 



First to Enter this Week:

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vinWestminster. Perhaps an odd choice for a title for a Haiku, but it’s the name on the post, although it think it has more to do with the post than the Haiku, but I am using it anyway. I enjoyed the Haiku, the photography and the story attached to it. A good addition to our group. I think we will all enjoy his enthusiasm for all things ancient. So sayeth the Historian.



Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Panic. The first up to comment on the meanness of my challenge. Okay, she didn’t say meanness, she said monster. Every now and then I like to throw something in to challenge all of us, including myself. I interpret her as the panic I as the “____” source.

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Nightmare. I am beginning to develop a complex now. I seem to be the source of panic and nightmares. Hmm. Must make challenge more difficult. 🙂 @TeandPaper

Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: Baby, Baby ,Baby. Um, not sure where that came from, but go check out Mira’s Haiku and you might figure it out. And she called it a difficult prompt. Hrmph. And Mira’s second one. What? You thought there would only be one? Misery. Really? My prompt words inspired misery? @BediMona

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: The Source of Wisdom. Well, he got the source right. 🙂 And no, it wasn’t me. Although I am a fount of knowledge and youth.   @greg_wolford 

Alyssa of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: Kismet. OOOOOOO. Who knew Fonzi was making a comeback. 🙂 I mean, first, last, you know. It is what it is. Or is it Chachi? @BWseekingBL

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Thought. Who didn’t like this one this week? Geesh. I haven’t seen that many likes since, well, okay I don’t get that many likes so now I am depressed. Going to the garden to eat some worms. 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Full Spectrum of Love. Awww, but I do. 🙂 I now have, “I Run So Far Away” going through my mind. You know, when you have amnesia and a song starts going through your mind you have to google it go nuts thinking that you are actually going nuts because some of these songs just don’t make sense. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.  

Rajani of THOTPURGE: Source.  Okay, had to read it a couple of times to get it. Nice use of words, different words than we normally see in everyday language. I liked that. Very nice. MUST READ.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…: Two this week.  It and Child. People gonna love that second one!!!! 

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Sky. Hmm. Next week photo challenge for a prompt she does is LOVE. Interesting. Also she liked my image I created. I think she should like win all the choices this week. I can stop now.

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Worrier  Excellent. Love the form. The message is great. Identifiable by everyone. MUST READ

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: 2 This week. One Humor and One Serious. Balloons and Butterflies. Okay, so I began to read the last one first and knowing the first is the humor, I began to worry about Marjorie a great deal. Even to my disturbed and mentally exhausted mind this was most certainly not a humor Haiku. Thankfully I noticed. Her humor one, well, the contents of that one I’m allergic to. Very traumatic experience all the way around. And here it’s after Midnight my Monday morning and I’m doing this review and being scarred even more for life than I am already. Fortunately, with my memory I will hopefully forget it by the end of the summer.  

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  A Mystery. WooooOOoooOOOo. Does that make you wonder what it’s about? I liked the story the began the post. I love reading about everyone’s life and learning about stuff and throw in a nice photo of something I haven’t seen that is only in that one place and awesome sauce. I typed awesome sauce? I typed it twice and haven’t deleted it. Notice I rarely delete things. I’m cool with being crazy. @MinKhor

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveRNah Leff Yah. I am very happy to hear this. Hmm. An interesting source, but I get it. Someday though. 🙂 I want to visit this source. Also we learn words!!!!

SW ysobel of Spunky WayfarerSecret Yarn Have I ever told y’all that every time I come to this particular poet I get this odd feeling my cat Spunky has learned to use the computer? I wouldn’t be surprised. Imagine for a moment that you arrive home at night and see this white image floating across the roof. Yes, that’s Spunky. He likes to get on the roof of the house, well in cool weather and chill. Kind of spooky. Ghostly even. Do I sound child-like? Go read the Haiku and you might see why I was inspired to be as such. @SpunkyWayfarer

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: Erm, Umm, Dr. KO In the House. Those that have been around and have read the good doctor’s work will understand my choice of title. Especially if they’ve read the Haiku this week. I get it, but how do you come up with a title for that. I thought about Boa Cat, but well why not. Good as any. The Haiku is Boa Cat, you’ll see why when you go check it out.

Geoff Le Pard of TanGental:  2 of them things dis week.  Bird Stew and Gossip Take Care. Quite interesting ones. That first one takes a sharp turn and whams you in the face. Surprises you it does. But it’s Geoff. Why am I surprised? Go to Amazon to get Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle. I don’t know who Sherry is but I mean what’s she doing with the dead flies? But yeah, click here for Amazon UK and here for the US. @geofflepard

Annette Rochelle Aben: Smiles: A Self Portrait. Okay, so it’s my title. Whatever, right? And why do I call it that? Hmm. Do you wonder?

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: MOVE IT!!!!.  Okay so the real title is OUT OF MY WAY. Awesome use of the photo.

clickerwriter of Captured by Aishwarya: Origin of Life Another great and timely Haiku. Hadn’t thought of this possibility for the prompts and two were along the same lines even if not exactly of the same thoughts. Cool, right?

Serins of Serins Sphere: Solution. Computers, smart phones, software, or my Haiku image design. Seems to apply wherever you go. @SerinsSphere

Rose of Bohemian Nerd: Peace. Very true one here. Two words with different meanings that some don’t realize. Very nice. Sandra of Wild Daffodil called it Meaning-FULL. 

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Be GONE! No, not her. Some of you people are soooo literal. That’s the title of her Haiku. I wish it were possible. Wait. It is. I’ve been there and done that.
@FTThum

ladyleemanilla: Three this week. Thinking. Yeah, I know this is the same title I gave the last entry for our Lady Lee but it still applies. Thinky person much? Hmm.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Heartache. She wrote three. Okay, she done been talking about my business. I have been whatever that word is when you follow the restraining order. Why she done gone and aired out my laundry? Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Prakash of It’s PH:   Thinky. Man got thinky and tongue twisty again. Why he do that so much? :). @itsPhTweet

Melissa of The Aran ArtisanUnclouded Thinking. Philosophy of sorts from our Aran Island Girl. I may speak to the subject of the post myself at some point. As always, my views may be predictable or may not. I am an odd one at times. I think it all depends on exactly how you think and view situations. Now people will read what Melissa has to say, then think of what I said, and make an assumption. Don’t you love it when that happens? @thearanartisan

Sarah Brentyn of Lemon Shark ReefPostpartum. There are two Haiku and that second one has great structure. Could be one sentence or two. Very nice.

Josue Mapagdalita (pen name: Sueju Takeshi) of Takeshi’s Flight: The Heart Releases the Truest Kind of Magic. I like to call it The Heart Releases. I don’t know the Potter words that I could have applied. Would have been fun though. Go check it out.

Melissa M of This, right now: The Thinker. Very true. Very true in so many situations.

Marigold of Versus Blurb: Reflection. Glad to be so helpful in your studies. 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 

Evolving Ruminations: Broken.  Whoa, like some seriously deep broken-ness going on there. Go give a hug. I hope it’s like all just poetic license and not for real.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Autumn. C00l. I like how this one flows. Very nice. Imagery is great.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Keep Away From Bees and Never Alone  Yep, two of them. Now what is the likelihood of having two people use the word bees in one week for the challenge? Whoa. OOOOO, that second one, nice. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Worrier  Excellent. Love the form. The message is great. Identifiable by everyone.

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: MOVE IT!!!!.  Okay so the real title is OUT OF MY WAY. Awesome use of the photo.


And the Closing Haiku:

Think and remember,

My ill from weeks far removed,

The source has returned.

 

 

Much Respect,

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge 42 Review

Week #42 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Love & Last

Missed a few regulars this week.

5 New members joined in the fun this week.

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.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

Annette Rochelle Aben of well, um, Annette Rochelle Aben: “Allow me to introduce myself, I am a writer, an author, a wordsmith and perhaps find myself to be more interesting than is necessary. So I shall NOT go into grand detail as to what I have done in my 40 + career of writing and instead shall use various pages of this blog site to reveal this energy. As with most writing it may take some time, so please bear with me.”~From her About Page. She must have memory problems because she forgot to mention she’s also the host of various blog talk radio programs each week. You can listen to one by clicking the TMH image to the left, it’s her interview of me from a while back. She jokes I took her Haiku virginity, seeing as this is her first. So let’s check it out. The Monster Within, yeah, she took the easy out with this one. When you read it you will like it and then you will be like, why did she have to write about that, I’ve been good today!

TJ Paris of La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin: “I am an Australian who enjoys photography, art, collecting, poetry, writing and all things French.”~From his About page. Much more there to find. Three Haiku: Insight, Love Token and Fall. A prolific Haikuist. Yes, I made up another Haikuism. See, I did it again.

Skybright1 of from heart to head: Claudette sent our new poet our way. YAY CLAUDETTE!!! Okay, stop the applause. She gets enough of it as it is. So the Haiku, Love Last Ever After. That’s my name for it. Could be Love Everlasting. But you know me. I get weird. Go read and find your own title.

Shida Tahirah of 876LoveR: Okay, I tried to pick out parts of her About page to share as I normally do with our new members, but one problem. I love all of it so much and I got so into it that I forgot to pick out anything. Yes, I enjoyed her story that much. From Jamaica, jealous already, drummer, again jealous and starting to hate on her a bit, great beaches and food. Okay, I am officially jelly hating on her now. (That’s a compliment in case people don’t know.)  Read her about page here. Okay, Haiku time. The Heart Doesn’t Lie. Oooo, another almost tongue twister Haiku. Liking that this week. Good message and thought here. And from the title you know it’s true. Too bad we don’t listen to that heart all the time, right? Or is it that we don’t understand it’s language?

Sarah of tuckedintoacorner: “I’m Sarah, a coffee-drinking, writing-obsessed bibliophile. I majored in English, studied several facets of literature and still can’t decide what I like most, though I’m leaning towards Gothic literature… or Victorian, or maybe Chaucer. It is very difficult to decide. Hang on, what about modern novels… I also studied German and have a special brand of terror reserved for The Sandman.”~From her About page. And there is a lot more there. Looks like we have a very nice and open member added to the Haikumily. I just made that up. Haiku+Family=Haikumily. Muahahahahah! Sorry. Where was I? Ah, Haiku, Love Lasting, a good question and one I think a lot of people should ask at some point.

 



First to Enter this Week:

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Love. Awwww, he got all mushy.   @greg_wolford 

 



Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: 2 this week.  Eternity. A somewhat image abounding Haiku this week. I wonder what happens when they retreat? And now from her other blog, The Kiss, hmm, makes me think here. A future post perhaps. If I remember. @BediMona

Meredith of Meredith’s Musings: Prompts and Lover’s Knots. Well, you know, you just have to love that first one for sure, right? I might as well stop the review now.  @Meredithlbl

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Leaf My Heart Alone Hey, if a bow can be taken, I can name the Haiku what I want to. Hrmph. @MinKhor

clickerwriter of Captured by Aishwarya: A Mother’s plight Ew. I just…ew. ew.ew.ew.ew.ew.ew. And I just ate breakfast. EW.

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Hope. Awwwwwwwwwwwwww. Seriously, awwwwwwwwwwww.

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…: Three this week.  Longevity of love and Read Between the Lines and One Live. Ha. Okay, that second one. Ha. She book ends that one with these two nice sentimental ones and you might miss it but, again, ha. You can’t hear me, I’m phantom giggling. 

Serins of Serins Sphere: His Love. The comments indicate she connected to some people on this one. @SerinsSphere

Sacha Black of Sacha Black: Sadness. Her last Haiku? I couldn’t click like. 😦

Rose of Bohemian Nerd: Ordinary Love. Most interesting Haiku. In part one I can most assuredly identify with.  

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Go or Stay. OOOOO, deep one. Wow. Another MUST READ from Rachael. I’m not surprised but I am surprised at the same time. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.  

Chennai of Twisted Tales on Life: Three this week. The Humanity, The Tragedy, and The Truth. Funny how things work out. I did a comic strip somewhat related to her first of the three Haiku. As for that second one, I don’t think it died. It’s still there alive and well. 🙂 You just need to have a very small taste each day to satisfy your desire and you will be fine.

ladyleemanilla: Two this week. Thinking. No, that is my title for them. Why? Because they make me think. It is almost as though that first one was written about me. I know it’s not but, elements of it fit so well.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Beyond. A very good message and piece of advice for all. I wish people would realize this and skip all of the in between by knowing this one simple little thing. She said the wanted to go one way and the words wanted to go another and they won. I think they won for a reason. It amazes me how all parts of the world suffer the same things that seep into our creative outlets in some form. Perhaps the intents of our messages are not as others read them but they are put out there for a purpose and this one speaks volumes. And she needs to add the Twitter option to the sharing buttons. Hrmph.

SW ysobel of Spunky WayfarerMystery Mayhem. I have to say, this one is excellent. Two sentences. Correct syllables. The reason I mention that is, it is also a short story. Perhaps this is one of the best pieces of flash fiction I’ve seen. I am ashamed it only has 4 likes. People must not have found it yet. There is no way you can read this and not like it. This is my MUST READ of the entire challenge.  @SpunkyWayfarer

Martha of Meredith’s Musings: Forever Love, Illusive Love, and Love Speaks. That’s right, three of them. I love these because she finally came out about our secret. 🙂 Okay, so it’s wishful thinking on my part. Love my Literary Angels so much. Oh to be a few years younger, they both say I’m too old for them. I truly appreciate these because she, well go read about it and see. A dedicated part of our family.  @Meredithlbl

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams –  Last Love of the Heart. Can’t blame her. I mean, when you’ve got it good you just have to tell it. And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato

Ruth of Mad Meandering Me: Epitaph  I want to say her blog has changed. I focus so much on the Haiku when I visit places that I can’t be certain but it looks different. I like how I can see her bouncy picture better here. Who votes we get to see a picture of her face? Show fo hands! Okay, the Haiku, since everyone raised their hands. Great message, to the heart, great structure and I like the way the layout of it progresses in visual form.

Geoff Le Pard of TanGentalLove’s Race. Hmm, I see. Okay first of all, I have to admit, every time Geoff visits I can’t help thinking of Def Leppard. I know, I know, not the same at all but it helps me remember. With my memory I have to use association. Okay, the Haiku. Sounds like how some young love think what love is but need to discover what it is truly about. Go to Amazon to get Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle. I don’t know who Sherry is but I mean what’s she doing with the dead flies? But yeah, click here for Amazon UK and here for the US. @geofflepard

Sue Vincent from Daily Echo: Aflame. Girls got passion, and some to spare. Not sure if she’s written a bodice ripper but I bet she could. With or without the bodice. 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

Rajani of THOTPURGE: Impossible.  Very interesting imagery, concept, and thought. Makes you step back and consider it. Very cool. Love those thinky surprises. Might deserve a Thinky Prize.

Sarah Brentyn of Lemon Shark Reef:  I know I don’t always put the last name up there but don’t you just love her name? This is her first official foray into the brink of destiny. I have no idea where that came from. But anyway, she did some tweet Haiku previously and I put it here as a guest Haiku and on the challenge. But here is her first real entry into the challenge. Lost. Nailed her first entry. Go read and support. Can read this many ways.

Prakash of It’s PH:   Tongue Twisted. Yeah, interesting title for a theme of Love and Last, right? Yeah, again, I came up with it. It’s because of the Haiku wording. He had fun with this one. Wordsmith dude. @itsPhTweet

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Loves Careless Pieces. I have no idea how she comes up with these things. Especially that second one. Who would have thought of using that thing in the first line in a Haiku about love?  

Josue Mapagdalita (pen name: Sueju Takeshi) of Takeshi’s Flight: Neglect Ended. Like that second line here. You want to make it continue on to be one long sentence and can, but it also breaks down into two sentences. Very nice.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Ebullient Eating. Um, Vashti sort of went off the deep end with this one. And yes this was the go to the dictionary Haiku name of the week. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: the size of love. Have to admit I was concerned when I first saw the title of this one. Whew. Actually turned out to be a lovely Haiku. Well, not really surprising, is it? But I am still keeping an eye on her. She’s mischievous she is. @TeandPaper

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Waiting. No Haiku response this week. And the title is mine, spoken as if in answer to her Haiku of that who awaiting. Does one await? Hmmm. @FTThum

Melissa M of This, right now: Empty Nest. Sad and cool at the same time. Love the butterfly in the photo. Haven’t seen that color before

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordFor Love That Lasts. Two this week, with explanations and well done as always. If I read her comment correctly I am afraid she is taking a break from the challenge. 😦 @girally

Melissa of The Aran ArtisanA run on sentence. How many things does this woman do? By the way, does anyone, when they see her commenting, start signing Island Girl by Elton John? Sad thing is I had to look up to find the name Elton John. @thearanartisan

Evolving Ruminations: Writer’s Inspiration and Teenage Love.  Two this week, hmm, kind of the same thought but with different endings. 🙂

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: The Last Shall be First. Messaged delivered, now for those to receive.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: An Author’s Dream Yep, that’s the dream alrighty right write right. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: Waiting Truly. Two Haiku. You know me. I like coming up with one title for both. She’s telling us some of her secrets. 🙂

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Go or Stay. OOOOO, deep one. Wow. Another MUST READ from Rachael. I’m not surprised but I am surprised at the same time. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Ebullient Eating. Um, Vashti sort of went off the deep end with this one. And yes this was the go to the dictionary Haiku name of the week. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

 

And the Closing Haiku:

I was ripped apart

the last time I heard the sound,

I love you, I died.

Week #41 Haiku Challenge Review of the Words Want & Tatters

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.

A piece of advice. Although Ping Back are seen and may be clicked on by visitors to the weekly challenge post, I am seeing that comment links seem receive more visitors, at least for newer members of the challenge.

New This Week

Chechennairamblingsnnai of Twisted Tales on Life: I like that blog name. Twisted tales, twisted tails. 🙂 Okay, moving along. “But for those millions of screaming fans out there (regardless of the fact that you are screaming at some megastar who just earns a bit more and is fabulous looking), I am just a normal woman in Chennai who has nothing else to do (except work, read and listen to music now and then), passionate about a few things – humour, reading, bloghopping and actually reading a few (especially if they are accompanied by snaps of cute guys). I am also nuts about coffee. I am currently head over heels in love with this darling man who thinks the world of me, as he should.” I Think Ronovan Writes is the best blog I’ve ever come across.~From her About Page. Okay, some of that might be from her about page and some might not be. You’ll have to go visit to figure out which is which. Now for the Haiku: Roving Hands. Very good one here. At first I am thinking of  one thing but then as I read it a second time I got it. Well, I think I did. Men sometimes show their Twisted Tails.



First to Enter this Week:

laughter-lines-sue-vincentSue Vincent from Daily Echo: Fire. A lot of people enjoyed this one this week. I mean A LOT. The photograph with it makes you see one thing until you step back a moment and break it down. A very illusional image. Yeah, I made up another word. 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 by clicking the image. Available in Paperback and for Kindle.

 



Mira of They, You And Me and To Wear a Rainbow blogs: 2 this week.  Want. Ooohhhh, yeeeaahh. All I am saying. Mira has a second one on her To Wear a Rainbow blog, Smile Away. I can see the meaning of it as it was intended, but initially, well, after reading the first few Haiku this week, my mind went somewhere else, but the smile showed up just the same.  @BediMona

Greg of Potholes in the Road of Life: Tattered Life. Greg has the right attitude. As Teddy Roosevelt would say, “CHARGE!” No, the Haiku isn’t about riding rough. (Wonder how many will get that?)  @greg_wolford 

Alyssa of Battered Wife Seeking Better Life: I’ve Said Too Much. I will pretend this one I never saw when the investigators ask me. @BWseekingBL

Edwina of Edwina’s Episodes: For Want of Peace. Edwina noted it was a tricky prompt this week but her result was better than I think she knows. I am thinking of my mind as the object in this Haiku. It is great need of it this past week or so with not much relief to it

Serins of Serins Sphere and Mystified Memoir: Jelly Tots. This Haiku is on her other WordPress blog, thus if you go there and it looks odd, it’s still her. Tumblr does not support ping backs. You actually have to use a plug-in to make it work. I did some research when she first started having the problem. @SerinsSphere

Elizabeth of Tea & Paper: Nonsense. Makes complete sense to me. Try coming up with new prompt words each week. 🙂 @TeandPaper

Ritu of But I Smile Anyway…: Two this week.  Heartbreak and Little Beggar Girl. Emotional offerings this week, as if Ritu has anything else to give, right? Hmm, odd that’s what I think of when I see Ritu pop up, emotions.

Sacha Black of Sacha Black: Haters. I’m sad. She’s thrown me to the side. Sniff, sniff. Tears on my laptop, pain in my mouse. Hmm, doesn’t have the same lyrical qualities of the original song. Technology ruins a good doo wop song.

mkdbMartha of Meredith’s Musings: Heartbroken and Desire. YES, that’s Martha for all of those who have wondered what she looks like. I’ve been wanting to share but wouldn’t until she outed herself. 🙂 She’s dealing in love this week. You know, you never like sad love, but especially so when it comes from sweet people.  @Meredithlbl

Rachael Ritchey of Writing Rachael Ritchey: Fickle. She outs the fluidity of my mind as it passes from one though to the next and forgets the previous only slightly sooner than the current. MUST READ. Remember to check out her book The Beauty Thief is available on Amazon with great reviews.  

Khor Hui Min of Project Prose:  Astray?. Set’s up the Haiku with an intro image giving the mood then gives us the Haiku. Quite interesting. I also find it interesting how people look at the prompt words this week. @MinKhor

Steven Walsky of Simplicity Lane: Tatters of Water. A very interesting use of the prompts and makes sense. Impressed.  Simplicity Lane is free, go here for where you can get it.  Through a Stranger’s Eyes here and Résumé for Love for free here.

Nato of Chasing Life and Finding Dreams –  Tattered Hope of my Heart. I think one a lot of people can identify with. And don’t forget that Michelle also has something else other than great writing talent going for her. Visit Michelle Lunato Photography. @MichelleLunato

Josue Mapagdalita (pen name: Sueju Takeshi) of Takeshi’s Flight: Thrifty. Life advice here for us all. Advice too many of us don’t take.

SW ysobel of Spunky WayfarerThe Mark of Z? Huh? Okay. Liking this one. . @SpunkyWayfarer

earlyMeredith of Meredith’s Musings: Healh and Porch Sitting. Haiku and a health update from Meredith. And not to be outdone, I am sharing a recent photo of her. Porch sitting works for me. Looks like a good day for it.  @Meredithlbl

 

clickerwriter of Captured by Aishwarya: I don’t want a tattered heart! Go give some hugs. 🙂 Pats on the back. Good words. Any of that kind of lovey dovey stuff. 🙂

Rajani Radhakrishnan of THOTPURGE: Tattered.  Three of them, and the last is most appropriate for April. Can any of you think of the reason why? Except for Rajani that is.

Sandra of Wild Daffodil: Tatters. Ha, a dilemma, I think. Hmm. But then is the second one an issue?

Florence of Meanings and Musings: Soaring while Grounded.
Now your dreams are yours
In a life new and waiting,
Dreams watch patiently
@FTThum

Canaf of Faithful Devotionals: What a Girl Wants. So, saying no Tacos, eh? Well, I do suppose too many tacos would probably be counter to want a girl wants in this case.

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordTypes of Tatters. A very good subject this week. In truth the best subject matter yet. MUST READ. @girally

Marigold of Versus Blurb: Don’t. The issue of love? You know I read and I assume that’s the subject many chose this week, but maybe it’s not. You know really when you read something it could be something entirely different. If you intentionally go in with the purpose of not looking at it from the love angle it could take on other lives. 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 

Dr. KO of KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog: Want some taters. So she combined two challenges this week, so what. She said she cheated but she didn’t.

Vashti Quiroz-Vega: Eve’s Temptation. Shame shame, getting spicy over there. Get Vashti’s current book, The Basement on Amazon by clicking here.

Melissa of The Aran ArtisanTrashy Romance. Yes, my title. You’ll get it when you go and read. 🙂 @thearanartisan

Colleen of Silver Threading: Tattered and Beaten. Nope, not what you are thinking. Awesome photo to go with it too. @ColleenChesebro  Also remember to drop by the LWI site and read Colleen’s Book Reviews. She is excellent. Click here to see everything she’s written.

Claudette of to search and to find happiness in every day: Complete. Yeah, another thinky one from Claudette. But you get it after a couple of times. I like those though. This one seems kind of deep to me..

Marjorie of Kyrosmagica: Bronze Alice. Loved her source of inspiration. And the photo to go with it was awesome. Everyone needs to go take a look.  

Melissa M of This, right now: Tatters. I find it interesting the different types of certain things in this world. When I think if the object here, being from a state where the flower and tree is this but a different variety.

Wendy Anne Darling of Silver Lightning: Prosperity. A good way of looking at things. Remember Wendy is one of our Authors. Get Silver Lightning Volume One at Amazon by clicking here.

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Potatoes for Soup and The Sea’s Hunger A touch of humor I think you will all enjoy with that first one, especially literary types, and nature sneaks in with the second. Remember another author in the house. I think the best would be to her book page on her weebly site, http://erawls.weebly.com/  

Evolving Ruminations: Materialistic Glutton.  Actually that’s two Haiku but I thought the titles worked so well together. Um, erm, well, y’all go read now, you hear?

Alka Girdhar of Magnanimous WordTypes of Tatters. A very good subject this week. In truth the best subject matter yet. @girally

E. Rawls of E. Rawls: Author creating stories and art: Potatoes for Soup    


And the Closing Haiku:

Memories tattered,

In days and nights with no rest,

I only want peace.
