The words this week for Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge were great! I had a lot of fun with them, particularly because they made me reflect on relationships and the choices I made along the way.
I am yours today,
For a time we’ll belong,
Then away I’ll run
Away I run, fast,
Like the wind to the mountain,
I do not belong
My fickle heart beats
Next to yours, running no more,
To you it belongs
Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenges are one of my favorite challenges on WordPress. I especially liked this week’s challenge: revenge and view.
Friends and foes alike,
Seek not revenge; seek to change
Your views of each other
Ronovan had another fantastic haiku challenge this week. I always love his word picks and the diversity of haikus they generate. Thanks Ronovan!
Creatures of study,
Cramming hard, I send you luck,
On these tests for life
The words this week for Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge were Study and Creature, which immediately made me think of my weary middle school students who are studying their hearts out for their upcoming exams. These exams determine so much of their futures. The scores determine their high schools which in turn determine their universities and future careers. Good luck to them!
Lately, I’ve found myself wandering deeply through the pages of books, getting lost in the world they contain. I love this feeling and always crave it when the story comes to an end. This feeling was the inspiration for my haiku for Ronovan’s challenge this week. The prompt was: Create & Destroy.
Creations where destruction
Is but quiet words
Going through the daily routine is sometimes just gathering up the frayed ends of life and holding them together for as long as possible.
P.S. These are NOT my soju bottles. I cannot stand the chemical taste of this most beloved Korean alcohol, but it a favorite among Koreans and foreigners alike. The low impact on the wallet probably helps with that 🙂
I am new to doing Ronovan’s challenge and happened to stumble upon it by chance. The haiku is one of my favorite forms to write (admittedly however, this one deviates ever so slightly) and when I saw the challenge I was super psyched to join in the fun. The words for this week are: pain & peace.
To write is both my
greatest peace and greatest pain,
word by word, line by line
