RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #53 Guide & Mad
What could this weeks Haiku poetry prompt challenge from Ronovan Writes be?
Ah the two words are Guide and Mad.
So what will I make of the prompt words guide and mad, could someone be driving me mad? Or are they guiding me to do something that I really should pay attention to? I don’t always listen, especially if I’m being coerced into doing something I don’t enjoy. Particularly if that unwelcome activity is taking me away from my writing! Ah, how dreadful. How could you ask me to abandon my blogging! Sacre bleu! Especially when I’m helping someone learn how to use WordPress. I’m spreading the word, doing my best to nurture another blogging hero.
Alright now you’re probably thinking what in heavens is she going on about?
Is she mad? Possibly a little!
I’ve been helping my sister in law set up her blog and well a certain someone wasn’t too pleased that I wasn’t doing what they wanted me to do. Ah, you can see my predicament, you can never please everyone can you? Least of all your nearest and dearest.
So with that in mind, here’s a little confession. Moi, I can be a very stubborn individual, a total rascal! Oh La La!!!
So this haiku is inspired by my stubborn spirit. I’m a Scorpio after all. I’m quiet on the surface, easy going, but underneath it all I have a saved up unexpected sting in my tail that comes out to play when you least expect it! Oh well it had to happen sooner or later. I’ve had this blog for over a year now, it was about time I told you about the real me. Warts and all. Sting and all. Tail and all.
Enough’s enough. I suppose I’ll have to be a good lass tomorrow but today I can do whatever I like!!! So I’m writing two posts to be published this week. Tee Hee!!!
Don’t tell anyone will you? I love secrets.
Ring, Ring, Don’t Call Me
Ring, Ring, Don’t Call Me.
You can guide but don’t change me
Your mad I’m Scorpio
My final Haiku is based on a real life event apparently kids were sneaking onto my dad’s golf course and picking magic mushrooms! Whatever next! This golfer looks very disgusted doesn’t he? He’d say something like this: “Magic Mushrooms, shocking! Why can’t they take up a healthy activity like golf? If I hadn’t seen this wicked magic mushroom picking with my own straight to the pin golfer’s eyes I’d would have to conclude that I’d been on the MM’s myself.”

Do leave a comment I’d love to hear from you.
Marje @ Kyrosmagica xx
Sounds like you’ve had a fun week! LOL!
Sometimes it’s fun being a bit of a rascal!
Ha, Ha, Marje! Good for you! <3
Hi Marje! I love that your stinger finally showed its nasty little pointy head. Ha, ha! Loved both haiku but I have to say the 2nd one cracked me up! 😀
Hi Vashti. I’m behaving myself now! Stinger retracted. Yes, I think the second one’s my favourite too. Golfers you just have to love ’em! Especially if your dad’s one! He’s a life long honorary member of his golf club, been a captain, played since he was a boy. Got lots of golf cups, etc, just loves his golf. 🙂
So I guess your dad was the inspiration for the haiku. What a cool homage. 😉
Yes, and he’s still a great inspiration at 86. He takes after his grandfather who was still fit at a fiddle at 90! He’s still playing a bit of golf, going on holidays abroad and charming the lady golfers! Not sure what my mum makes of that!
Nice haikus! I especially like the “magic mushrooms.” 😉
Thank you. It’s my favourite too!
