Ronovan Writes SIJO Wednesday Poetry Challenge #47. Use ESCAPE as your inspiration this week.


Finally the chance to get away, restraints slack, door unlocked.
Silently, heart pounding. Crawl into the night’s cool air.
Sweet smell of earth surrounds me then pain. Blackness as life escapes me.

It’s effervescence
Filling tides, inlets and coves
Bubbling like Champagne.

I do not apologize for basing my Sijo this week on News story: Jan. 24, 2023, at 2:14 p.m. LONDON (Reuters) -British voluntary aid workers Chris Parry and Andrew Bagshaw were killed during an attempted humanitarian evacuation in eastern Ukraine, Parry’s family said on Tuesday, weeks after they were reported missing in the war-torn country.


Caught up in the theatre of war, two heroes gave their lives for others.
Winter showed no pity, the enemy gives no quarter.
Four seasons witness atrocities, the miss fortune of war.

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 446 CHIRP and Hello.

This week I’ve written a Haiku inspired by this mornings walk with Ruby.

Cold frosty morning
Across frozen fields we tramp
Birds from frosted trees
Chirp having survived the night
Bleak midwinter’s harsh hello.

Ronovan Writes SIJO Wednesday Poetry Challenge #45. Use EMBRACE as your inspiration this week.


From the second you arrive either clinical delivery suite
Or cosily at home or even a paddy field
That first embrace with mother or father, Gaia enfolds them all .

I have been down and I have been out for the count, bruised and blooded.
Held down and shamed, out of work and out of sorts
But like the mushroom kept in the dark and fed shit I am determined and will overcome.

Dog and frog.

Croaking from the pond
Ears pricked she barks from the door
Nature’s mismatched friends.

The New Year beckons. As young as she is, she holds the promise of new and exciting times.
Wrapped still in winter’s deathly cold, she meanders forth.
Yet underneath hope is preparing to bloom bright and new.

Free fall, hard landing
Words easily break a heart
Takes so long to mend.

Patience can repair
Take timeout
Life is just too short.
