Venus and Mars | #RonovanWrites #Haiku #Challenge 314

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 314 Finger&Planet

cloudy night sky with stars

Earth’s windy fingers
riffle through her layered clouds
opening to view
Venus slipping from her path
for a midnight walk with Mars

A Late Spring | #RonovanWrites #Haiku Might/Slight

wild violet in new grass
Wild Violet Under Grass

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 304: Might&Slight

 

though slight of power
blades of grass emerge…nearby
violets unfold

freezing nights and gentle rain
the nurture of day’s sunlight

tight-bound by magic
since before this world was born
Sol’s majesty reigns

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #300 Grit&Quit

photo taken in the early 2000s at an informal Unisys employee gathering
Pebbled Beach

simply walked away
from the troubles I had known
left them far behind
 
now I dream ‘neath summer clouds
counting pebbles on the shore

hilly, green pastoral scene with stands of trees and stone walls

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #291 Charm&Harm

dreams of rustic charms…
the thickets and stone fences
shelter all from harm

butterflies rest on cows’ ears
trout and flies share pasture news

memories of sweeter times
gold and purple blooms

bittersweet—not sugar—brings
dreams to heal a broken heart
