RonovanWrites 83rd #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry #Links

Comments are bit skimpy this week. With the book launch of today for Amber Wake: Gabriel Falling now live on Kindle as well as Paperback, I may be able to get back in the swing of things.

To view an author’s books on Amazon, click either the word Author in red, or the book image beside their name.

If an author does not have a comment, as do the entries, that means they did not have an entry this week, but I left their place here. Is it for the benefit of advertising their work? No, it is for the ease of my formatting their next entry in the challenge. It’s a bear to do those. (And maybe there is a little heart felt type thing I have for authors.)

New Offenders!

Don Massenzio: Flawed | Don Massenzio’s Blog Independent Authors Unite!   The Haiku is in the comments, and his blog is the other link. Like my character, Frank Rozzani, I was born in Syracuse, New York to first generation Italian American parents. I’m an avid reader. Some of my favorite authors are Harlan Coben, David Morrell, Stephen King, Jonathan Kellerman, John Grisham, and Hugh Howey. My favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird.
I started writing as a way to combat the long hours of travel and numerous hotel stays that are part of the ‘glamorous’ world of corporate life. I use writing as a therapeutic outlet to combat my homesickness...[more on his author site].”

FANTASY

LIFE

Nato: Flames of Love | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. 4 Haiku based on Nato’s favorite subject … Romance. @MichelleLunato

Alice: Lasting Love | Boomerang Zone. Some romance action here. It does take time. @Vidocq_CC

Mira: Everlasting Love | To Wear a Rainbow. She is telling it like it is in so many cases. @BediMona

ShidaTahirah: Lit | 876LoveR. The island lady returns. She is going on the theme of romance. Hmm … now who would have thought when I came up with the prompt words for the week leading up to Valentine’s Day that they would inspire romance Haiku? (I’m raising my hand.) @Rebel_Shida

Mira: Hidden Flame | They, You and Me. More romance. Mira does romance well. Sometimes it’s the end results of a romance that’s gone bad, then she does the inspiring moments of being in the good times of romance. @BediMona

Judy: Kindled Fire | Edwina’s Episodes. Even though she went all sweet and romantic, I could not help myself but do a word play with the title. I knew she had it in her. @EdwinasEpisodes

jazzytower (PR): Fireside Memories | Thoughts and Entanglements. Thoughts go where they may when caught up in where the mind leads.

Sandra: Zero | Wild Daffodil. She had to get creative with this one to fit in with her Photo challenge. You can find the list of this years photo challenges, from her and Melissa, on Daffy’s blog by clicking here. And information about the challenge in her post.

1000hoursleft (Mek): Conflict Resolution | Work In Progress. A group of Haiku with a touch of trivia. Makes you want to go check the trivia out.

Al: Under Pressure  | A Certain Point of View. Think the dude is still throwing back to Bowie for a bit of inspiration. Okay, maybe not, but you know when you see those two words together you have to think it. @AlistairLane

Ken G.: Flame Afloat | RIVRVLOGR. Love story time.

Ruby Manchada: Flaming Gems | Whispering Thoughts. Seems like a commentary on someting.

Olga:  From the Ashes | Stuff and what if. This one has two meanings if you like.

Diedre Blake: Road Map | Toward the Within … A bit of down to earth title for this one, that is down to earth but doesn’t sound like it.

Ritu: Ignited | But I Smile Anyway. I don’t think this one says what I think it says but it says what it  might means to say in a very odd sort of way. @PhantomGiggler

Geetha: Conflagration of Senses | Geetha Balvannanathan’s Blog. A whole bunch of cool Haiku. @geethap2007

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha: Tried | A Cooking Pot and TwistedTales. Two Haiku, both giving some good advice.

Crow: Poem 20160209 (Aftermath) | Caw!.  Not exactly the word I am looking for to give the Haiku, but the one I have at the moment. @Crow

Florence: Chilled Desire | Meanings and Musings. Well, she did the opposite thing quite well. @FTThum

NATURE

Clarence: Nova | PrairieChat. I like that photo he used with this one. Fits very nicely with the Haiku.

Peter: Crocus | Wherever I lay my pen, that’s my home. Hope is near in this Haiku and photo.

Teresa Smeigh: Twinkling Bright | Always A Writer. A gem of a Haiku. I couldn’t resist it, it was there. @TeresaSmeigh

Pat B: Chandalier | A season and a time. These have always been some of my favorites.

Marie: Gem Fire | The Syllabub Sea. That’s how it happens. Did you know they grow?

Lizl : Smoldering | Quilted Poetry. Gems and sunsets and things like that.

Janice: Cocoa gems sent from the gods. | Ontheland. A good lesson about a favorite subject. I bet most people didn’t know this is where it came from. @ontheland1

Cathy: Synonymical Liberties | Rambling in the Garden. I think this is a nature one. I’m pretty sure it is.

DrKottaway: Pressure | KO Rural Mad As Hell Blog. Interesting the different was people can describe something.

  1. Another great set of Haiku! Sorry I didn’t have the time to do the Tweeting frenzy like last week!
    So…. What did you think the haiku actually meant…? A message of true love, or all that glistens… and all that?

  2. Excellent and entertaining as always Ron. So cool that you put the book covers up and even the ones who didn’t participate this week. Also, I can’t thank you enough for continuing to mention Sandra’s and my photo challenge words. So kind. And ‘Must Read’? Eeeks, nearly fell off my chair! I’ll have to go check my kindle as your book should be there now. I’m so happy for you, congratulations Ronovan!!

  3. Thank-you Ronovan. When I joined in, I had no idea you would count me as an author and link to my platform. Hey! Valentine’s Day. I just remembered, your book is released Valentine’s Day. Excuse me while I pop off and get it at Kindle Australia … … done, and tweeted. All the very best for Amber Wake. 🙂
