Hardened…Ronovan writes weekly haiku.

For this week’s Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge. we have ‘friend and shiver.’

Below are my takes on it.



Winter is not my friend,

It’s blustery, cold and freezing harsh nature’

Makes me shiver and cough.


She doesn’t like his friends,

Such a dodgy, hard and wild bunch,

They give Alyssa the shivers.


Shivers sped down her spine,

When she looked into his flinty eyes,

They looked hard and unfriendly.

Dragging Feet…Ronovan Writes Weekly Poetry Haiku

Mama, are you saying that 

I really have to take a shower

Before I get to play?

The pair of words: ‘Shower and Play’  Ronovan gave us for this week brought a smile to my face.

It reminds me of certain conversation that goes on in my household between me and my youngest.

With sweet wide eyes  looking at me full of expectations that he will get a pass.

Getting Stuck…Ronovan’s weekly poetry haiku challenge.

Ronovan’s  Haiku prompt for this week ‘lift and plan’ gave me a lot of options, but I settled for these two. I enjoyed playing around with both words.

She got stuck in the creaky lift

The lights went off suddenly

That was simply not in the plan!


With no plan in place

and funds finished

She thumbed for a lift.

Perfect…Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge

I like the two words for this week’s Ronovan’s haiku. Maybe because I like milk and it’s smoothness as it glides down the throat. I tried my hand on several and I wasn’t sure which one I liked most 🙂

She found the perfect wedding gown

Pearls placed, garters arranged

Silk creamy smooth, just like milk


Her smooth skin glistened as she twirled

She looked delicious and perfect

Like warm glass of milk and cookies


He was so smooth with his talk

I didn’t believe my luck

Until he wanted to milk me dry

Tried…Ronovans Weekly Haiku Challenge #83

I like the combination of words we have this week for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge. Gem and ‘Flame’.

Here are my two takes.

When we pass through circumstances 

Of life’s searing flames

We become refined rare gems.


A gem he proved not to be

She heartily bade him goodbye

Their flame of lust had gone cold.

An smart combination of words we have this week for Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge., ‘Star’ and ‘Child’.

Here are my two takes.

Finally they rescued the child
From the pit
The mother thanked her Star.


She is a child prodigy
Destined for greatness
Her star quality shines through.

Testy….Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry.

An interesting combination of words we have this week for Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge, ‘trill’ and ‘final’.

Here are my attempts.

Her final attempt to squeeze into it
Caused a sharp rip in the skirt
Oh! This will not thrill the sales lady


It’s his final degree examinations
The professors tricky questions
Didn’t give him any thrill.

Inhale… Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku # 88 Style and Fresh.

Two great words to use this week for Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge. Style & Fresh.

He admires the style of her hair.

Leaning over, he inhales,

They smell like fresh cut summer flowers.


The tweed jacket is out of  style,

She clings to it nonetheless,

It reminds her of fathers fresh cologne.

Crystal Meth…

A fascination of the Stars it held,

Purported to pleasure he heard,

Hope he keeps away from the Meth.
