Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 23 (FALL) This week, it’s the B rhyme line.

A Décima with fall to rhyme with the B line and to incorporate the words wings and clipped from Monday’s Ronovanwrite’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Autumn

Summers wings, well and truly clipped
Autumn is here and leaves will fall.
Smoke rises from the bonfires pall.
Harvest of fruits exotic sipped
Dancing leaves like fairies have tripped.
Squirrels gathering winter’s stores
Birds migrating to foreign shores.
The nights are drawing in so fast
Later mornings, bright sunrise past.
Acorns, chestnuts line woodland floors.

Don’t trip the fly trap

Nothing to do with Venus

Whip up lunch right now.

Ronovanwrite’sDécima Poetry Challenge #5. Mate.

The Huntsman.

Cruel hunter kills the feamale

Uncaring of her young ones plight.

One wonders will he sleep this night.

Oblivious to storking male

The huntsman sits and quaffs his ale.

Heart broken by loss of his mate

Bear moves in, full of hate.

The human creature kills for sport

For the life he stole he cares nought

Death too gruesome to contemplate.

She is patient with us all.

This week for Colleen’s Tuesday Tanka I chose to do a Tanka about Mother Nature and her timeless progress, despite our best efforts to ruin her.

Colleen’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

For Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge, you can write your poem in the forms defined on the Poetry Challenge Cheatsheet:

Poetry Form Cheats sheet. This tutorial will help poets learn the different forms to use for Colleen’s Weekly Syllabic Poetry Challenge. Image by Thought Catalog from Pixabay HAIKU IN ENGLISH: 5/7/5, 3/5/3, or 2/3/2 s…

I wrote my Haiku in the 5/7/5 form that I always use. Colleen suggested I the other forms of 3/5/3 and 2/3/2. Colleen even showed me an example of each. Well I try never to shrink from challenge so I am going to have a go .

Here is my original. The prompts were Calm and Present.

Time stops in the now.

This is part of Ronovanwrites Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Temperature’s high

The mercury is sky high.

The fever is fierce.

This is part of Ronovanwrites Weekly Haiku Challenge.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and the prompt words will in some way be reflective of that. The National Alliance on Mental Illness or NAMI is a big part of this.

In Serene knowledge

That Misery is not pure

Fight, reach for the light.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month and the prompt words will be reflecting that in some way. The National Alliance on Mental Illness or NAMI is a big part of this.

Our dear Ronovan said :”Those of you who have been with me since the beginning of my blogging time for the past 6 years know that I’ve had my own problems, which was one reason I started blogging in the first place. Through the friendships I developed and the outlet blogging gave me I’ve improved a great deal. I have neglected those friendships, and however much I want to improve in that area I’ve been in a not very energy filled place in parts of my life and those parts have suffered.”

Ronovan’s words resonate with me too because I have suffered on and off with depression. I know the Black Dog well.

To walk in Nature

Is my own way of coping

Friends are my support

Gia always lifts my mood

Friends help me fight the Black Dog .
