RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #48 Inspire&Loss
Inspire and Loss – what a wonderful pairing, I’m going to enjoy this weeks Haiku Challenge from Ronovan Writes.
It’s funny how a couple of words can take you on a strange journey, into a surreal picnic setting with a tree, a floating piece of grass, and a kite attached to the tree. Oh and a passionate kiss, nearly forgot that! How could I? If this loved up couple move an inch on their picnic playground there’s a chance they will fall of their half bubble of perfectly maintained grass. Never mind that kite, they should have tethered themselves to the tree as well, just in case, you can never be too careful! But passion doesn’t tend to go hand in hand with caution does it? Nope, it sure doesn’t. Oops…..
Floating grass picnic
Inspires such surreal desire
Sad Loss My Kite Boy
Moving on from the loss of Kite Boy, let’s take a moment to reflect on this still life. After Kite Boy’s gone I think the peacock feather will be plucked, colour dashed, so sad……………
Plucked Still Life
Loss of a peacock feather
A muted still life

Words good or bad, are my very own!
I like both of these, perhaps the second one more—it’s lovely!
Thank you Jane, so kind of you to say so. 🙂
Hello Marjorie! These are some wildly creative haiku. Love them! You have a great imagination, my friend! 😀
Thank you Vashti. So Glad you loved them! 🙂
I love your choice of illustrations. They fit perfectly with each Haiku. The second Haiku draws me into its quiet beauty, while the first fills the senses with many unusual occurrences. I love the surreal in art and also the still life you have chosen. They are both marvelous images to enjoy with the flavor of each Haiku. Marvelous!
Thank you so much, I’m really touched by your comments. I love the surreal too, these images really caught my eye. 🙂
You are welcome. You have a great eye for art. 🙂
Thank you. How lovely of you to say so. Appreciate it so much.
Marjorie your words match the still life perfectly. I can close my eyes and see it there. Well done! <3
