RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #103 Summer&Fun

Monday night, and Ron’s Haiku Challenge. The words this week are Summer & Fun.

I had a great deal with these words! Sorry but due to a headache, I haven’t sorted images out, but I managed to write a few bits!

I thought I would try a few different formats, so here goes! I hope you enjoy!

Summer Lovin’ –  Traditional Haiku – 5/7/5

Love in the summer

Joy filled heated days and nights

Autumn quenches thirsts


Remember When? – Haiku 3/5/3

Summer days

Oh, the fun we had


English Summer – A Haibun

Well, how can I write about summer without mentioning our famous English summers! We are lucky enough to get all four seasons in one day here at times, and when it comes to summer, yes, there can be glorious weather, but this year, as with s many others, June has had heat, then the weather has swayed back to thunderstorms, and heavy downpours. Some areas even had hailstones last weekend! So this verse is a tribute to our summers.

Welcome to England

We have a one day summer

Make sure you have fun!

Baby Boom – A Haibun

Do you ever wonder why there is an extreme number of babies born at particular times of the year? Trace back 9 months and check the weather. It was either cold, so there was some interesting methods of body heating going on, or it was the height of summer, and the heat’s aphrodisiac quality hit home!

A Season of heat

Welcomes fun filled siestas

Cue a baby boom!

Tranquility – A Tanka

A hot summers day

Bees flitting from bloom to bloom

Buzzing past my ears

I sit, cocktail in hand

Enjoying tranquility

Life Cycle – a Freku

In the spring of life

You learn

In the summertime

You earn

As autumn comes

You yearn

In the winter

You burn


Whichever season

Spring, summer, autumn, winter

Each of them bring joy


Well, there you have it… My headache-fueled verses. Please let me know if I should really be in bed, sleeping the headache off, or if I need to endure more pain to create decent verse!

        Still in grief… trying to move towards acceptance, but sad about the whole situation to be honest. This vote has really split people – even within my family, there are those on both sides who are struggling to get on because of this

        It is tough. Luckily no one I know is causing greif even though we voted differently, but it scares me, with some of the racism and hate crime that is happening. I know full well that a vast majority of the Leave voters are not racists or bigots, but the ones that are, are already causing so much grief, I worry for my kids…

        That’s what happens when you side with racists, even if you aren’t one – it legitimises them, and encourages them. There’s a lot of fear about. Hopefully some strong political leadership will emerge soon, to start calming things back down

    I LOVE every word, Ritu!!! Now please go to bed, have a lie-down till you feel better, headaches are no fun at all–I have them daily, but can’t be bothered to rest (ergo, don’t do what I do!). Sending up prayers for your relief–God bless you 🙂
