RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #69 Haiku&Mind
As some of you will know from my previous blogging posts I’m on a bit of a blogging break so it will be a bit quiet here on Kyrosmagica, but I thought I might just share with you one little all encompassing post this week as I’m missing joining in on various blogging activities so here’s my entries for Ronovan’s Haiku challenge, Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday, and Ronovan’s Bewow!
To start with I wrote several haiku, the first few are about my blogging break!
The last few haiku are to inspire, encourage, and motivate students studying for exams this autumn.
Haiku’s On my Mind
A blogging break dear?
No, Haiku’s on my mind,
Three line rich story
Haiku Mind Games
The prompt words stump you
Haiku mind games
My final haiku are for all those students currently studying for the mock exams, believe in yourself, you can do it, work hard, reach your starry dreams. My youngest daughter is currently looking at Sixth Forms for next year. Last night we went to an open evening and I was really impressed by a current six former in her final year who delivered a truly inspiring speech, and seemed to speak directly from the heart. This has inspired my daughter to set her goals quite high to go to this particular sixth form of her choice. Undoubtedly this will involve a lot of hard work to reach those all important grades that she needs, so this post is with her in mind and for all the other youngsters, and young people who are currently studying for their exams, or doing course work, at schools, colleges, and universities. It’s a tough time but persevere and remember to make the impossible become the possible. Draw this on a piece of paper, or chalk it on a chalk board somewhere you can see it. Make it your goal.
Dream in possibles
Haiku enrich bright young minds
Reach Your Starry Dreams
Haiku for you
Study hard expand your mind
Reach your starry dreams.

To end I’d just like to join in Writer’s Quote Wednesday hosted on Colleen’s Silver Threading blog, and Ronovan’s BEWOW.
Here’s a link to Colleen’s blog to join in the fun:
I’ve written a quote for Writer’s Quote Wednesday and for Ronovan’s BEWOW – Be Wonderful Wednesday.
I’ve housed this all important quote in the following photo that I took of my ceiling when it was all lit up. The photo made quite a spectacular pattern, which turned out all green which was a bit odd but I’d just been to see Wicked at the Apollo Theatre in London so ……. that was quite appropriate!!
My Wickedly Inspiring Quote:
This is your time to shine, believe in yourself, remember to breathe, eat and rest. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t be the best you can be, reach those all important goals, and remember all the while to stay positive, focused, happy, and encourage and motivate your friends to do the same. Make the impossible, possible.
Good luck in all the forthcoming exams. I’m casting a spell on you to do well!
Bye for now,
Marje @ Kyrosmagica xx
Wow, some excellent haikus here, Marjorie. I had no idea this was another area of expertise for you 🙂 Motivating, brisk, and vigorous – almost like a good Italian red wine! Applause, applause 🙂
Thank you!! So kind, I’m so glad I uncorked my haiku bottle. I love writing haikus but only realised this since entering Ronovan’s challenge. I have such fun playing with words!
A nice quote and loved the picture you used for the quote! Reflection on a reflection!
Thank you! My daughter finds exams very stressful so want to give her lots of positivity to get through this…..
