Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 79: (VERVE) in the C rhyme line.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image

Enthusiasm and delight
Mixes with Gaia’s perfect plan
The insects are a happy gang .
Some just crawl others take to flight.
Joy da vivre keeps them up all night.
This party is full of such verve
The bugs are on an upward curve.
Butterflies, spiders, ladybugs
All bouncing mad as if on drug.
Phychedelic bugs, high on lovre.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Décima Challenge.

there’s a place for all
honey bees and bugs so small
all start to Rumble
nature’s rough and busy tumble
there is no time to grumble


Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 372 . QUESTION and Sign.


Today I chose to do a Tanka.

we get so confused
with all the conflicting signs
that life throws at us
that’s a very deep question
the answers buried in time.

Rootless, why am I am so rootless .
Limits of life nature is best.
We follow the rules of the quest.
Running fast from trouble and stress.
We have no home or ties that’s best.
Freedom we crave from birth to grave.
No ties , no thethers , we are brave.
We are within the special groove.
We bend and roll we dance and move.
It is freedom that we do crave.

I have chosen to continue my theme from Mondays Haiku Challenge. I actually did a Tanka.

Image from here

The tree is old, it’s dying now
A cancer has eaten it’s soul.
T’is hollow now where once t’was whole.
Rotting fruit withers on the bough.
Wasps, invited to death’s feast, row
Over sweet rotting apple core
They feast and gorge demanding more.
This is the circle of all strife
Just one pip needs to seed for life
Then appple trees will grow once more.


Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 370 APPLE and Rot.

This is part of Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge. Today I have chosen to do a Tanka.

heavy laden tree
russett coloured apples fall
the wasps eat them all.
sadly as they fall they rot.
wasps enjoy what we do not.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 24, 2021

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Linda,our host said : “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “color/colour.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or pick a color and write about it–use it any way you like. Have fun!”

Colour surrounds us, golden sunlight, silver moonlight, green fields and blue skies and seas. Nature is full of colour. Colour makes our lives we even describe our feelings in colour. When we see a rainbow we see it as magical.

Cinnamon yellow warm
Opal white cool and calm
Languishing purple of the soul
Orange burnished hot
Ultimately colours blend
Restoring beauty to our lives.


Below are two videos. The first one is an old advert for a colour TV. If you look through the fact it is an advert and listen to the words and look at the pictures it is beautiful. The song used is Sound And Vision by David Bowie.

The video below is an old one from 2002 by Darius Campbell. Colour Blind.

Have a happy and colourful weekend everyone 💜💜💜
