Ronovan said : You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (MAD and Sane) which and this Décima Challenge of GIFT in the B rhyme lineThis means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The 2 CHALLENGES are SEPARATE but CAN BE combined if YOU CHOOSE to do so. I chose to do so. Here is the link to my Haiku.

The gift of madness.

Corridors full of empty souls
Dancing but their spirits won’t lift.
Sanity is not ours to gift
Lost forever all youthful goals
Here hope is gone it downhill rolls.
Screaming inside, making no sound
Dancing in circles round and round.
Foresake all hope of leaving here.
Keeping guard, surrounded by fear.
We’re all lost never to be found.


This is my entry for Ronovanwrite’s Décima Challenge.

    The world is definitely an insane asylum. Sometimes we get a glimpse sanity.

        I have to keep remembering that life on Earth been more peaceful in the last half of the 20th century than it has been since homo sapiens crawled out of the caves. When I consider what it must have been like to be alive during the Vikings, Genghis Kahn, WWI and WWII, it gives me hope.

        I didn’t mean to slap anyone’s face. Sorry if I made you feel that way. It’s just that up until a year ago, life was better in this world than it had been during most of history. I am grateful I was alive during a relatively peaceful moment, but I fear for the future of my grandchildren.

        My parents were fortunate in many ways. They were able to sell their home and tour the country in the 1970’s in a motor home when gas prices were still low enough and they could build the first floor of their new home without a $&#@ permit. They lived during a time when the western word was just on the brink of going crazy.

        I totally agree and I honestly meant the ‘slap on the face ‘ in a good way. I fear for the future of our children and grandchildren. Somehow we have squandered ( we as in the human race) so much of earth’s resources and she is biting back. I think we are the last generation to have it easy….though easy may not be the right word. Not sure what 2021 might bring so here’s to 2022. 💜😊
