Ronovan Writes: Weekly Haiku Challenge – No. 38 ILL AND REST



RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #38 ill&rest

Well I enjoyed doing Challenge #37, so I thought I’d do another Haiku Prompt Challenge.

It’s fun so here goes.

The theme this week is ill and rest.

I wrote two Hiakus this week, they are both about loss and death, sorry for being so morbid but the prompt of ill and rest seemed to lead me down that path!

My first Haiku A Bitter Ill  is about illness resulting in loss of life, whereas my second Haiku,

The Tornado’s Fist is about loss of life, caused by the devastating effect of natural disasters.



A Bitter Ill

A bitter ill may kill

Rest survive when others die

Too cruel this sad world.


A bitter ill may kill, rest survive when others die.

Rest survive when others die, too cruel this sad world.



The Tornado’s Fist

The Tornado’s  Fist

 Strangers  far away do grieve

Lives lost with one blow


The tornado’s fist, strangers far away do grieve.

Strangers far away do grieve, lives lost with one blow.

Hi. Welcome to my blog: M J Mallon - Kyrosmagica Publishing. A blog about magic, books, writing, laughter, and much more! I'm a debut writer, my first YA fantasy novel The Curse of Time - Book 1 - Bloodstone is set in Cambridge. I write book reviews on my blog and on Goodreads. I have a penchant for travel and have relatives in far flung places, Australia, Malaysia, and Singapore, (my birthplace.) I grew up in in Bonnie Scotland, in Edinburgh, and now live in Cambridge. I love sunny, hot places, particularly Rome, Venice, Portugal, Barcelona, and I forgot to mention the sun drenched beaches of the Caribbean, how could I? I am lucky to have been blessed with two lovely daughters and a husband who I fondly refer to in this blog as my black sheep. Family joke! With my passion for travel, culture, beautiful beaches, good food, books, theatre, writing, and humour, I hope to keep you entertained. I'm loving every minute of this creative journey, please join me.

  1. Marjorie, well done with your haiku! I enjoyed both. What made you decide to jump in and give Donovan’s challenge a try? It took me quite a long while to put mine together. How about you?

  2. Thank you Stacy. I had been thinking of joining in for a while and glad I did. I thought haiku would be a good starting point for writing some poetry, given that they are structured and short. Having said that they’re not easy to do! I fiddle with the words until I find the combination that seems to be my best attempt! Thanks so much for commenting. 🙂
