Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge # 57


Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku#PoetryPrompt# Challenge#57 Bust & Must

This week’s prompt words for Ron’s Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge are bust and must.

There are several meanings for the word bust so I thought I’d explore them and have a bit of fun!

The two prompt words brought to mind my piano teacher, God rest her soul. I feel a bit mean about this one,  she was a lovely chatty lady with one very abundant distinguishing feature. But, she was a good sport and an excellent piano teacher so, I trust she wouldn’t mind if I start off with joke to make you smile.


Piano Teacher

Must navigate around her

Ample bust on keys

Expressions with the word bust in them –


He bust his sweet ass

To make a forever perch

Love must always last

Oh, and let’s not forget artists mannequins:


Such a fine red hat

  A mannequin bust display

Must have gold necklace



Holiday must see

Clear blue skies sand sculpture bust

Amazing delight

Unfortunately the other day I broke my lovely tea caddy, I was a bit upset about this, but I suppose on the bright side it gives me an excuse to buy a new one! Or who knows maybe a magical tea cup?  I need one of these at the moment, my kitchen renovation is still going on, when will it ever end? Magic wand please come to my rescue!


Bust my china cup

My only magical brew

Must get a new one.

      1. I had a feeling it was a true story.
        I’m sure you’re better at the piano than I am. I taught myself – badly, with a disapproving aunt in the background, telling me that I should get an instructor. But I didn’t really care; I wasn’t planning to become a concert pianist. I just wanted i love the enjoy myself.

      2. It’s really not the easiest instrument in the world is it?
        I expect you’re better than you think, although not as good as you would like to be.
