Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 337 OPEN and Solace

heights, horizon, clouds, sky,
Joy & Peace

open book
comfort of silence
blank pages

open sky
clouds in the distance
cooling wind

all’s at peace
new pathways appear
venture on

The Tides of Love | #RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku # Poetry #Challenge 332

Forever Love

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 332 Ebb & Flow

life’s tides are certain
rhythmic changes shape our years
flow and ebb…and cease

entwined hearts drawn in the sand
now buried but eternal

and the warmth of a new day

Stargazing | #RonovanWrites #Haiku #313 Challenge

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 313 Dwindle&Ripple

dwindling twilight
ripple of receding waves
echoing of stars
the Milky Way is mirrored
in a sea of endless night

night sky, clouded moon, deserted shoreline

the moon’s light dwindles
as winds shepherd rain-filled clouds
rippling mirrored skies

far beneath the Milky Way
waves caress an empty shore

moonlight cloaked by sound
mirrored in a tidal race
scattered on the shore

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
