Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge 277

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge, which is a challenge that Ronovan writes weekly to encourage writers to, in my case weakly, write a haiku using a pair of prompt words that he provides promptly.

This week, he provided the 277th pair of prompts, having previously provided 276 others.

I hope that’s clear enough to explain what’s going on.

So, this weeks promptly provided pair of prompt words are:

River and Path

Incidentally, I am going to be on best behaviour this week as I noticed that last week, and I am deeply honoured to announce it to you, that Ronovan himself popped in here to have a read of last weeks effort! And he did a ‘Like’! Although we don’t know if that was a sympathetic one or a Facebook-style data-point one, enabling me to be targeted for Japanese verse book advertising for years to come.

Actually, I just realised that if he’s already been here once, there’s very little likelihood of him wanting to come again, so I can relax now and it’ll probably be as awful as usual.

Right, I have kept you waiting for this weeks stroll along with some scintillating syllables long enough. Here it is.


regretful and wet
vicar on a river bank
he strayed from the path

He was probably an Anglercan.
(I am very, very sorry for that. I’ll go now. And if you’ve got any sense, so will you.)

Note: If you like what I wrote up there, why not share it among other people who you know and you think might like it too but would not otherwise be seen dead hanging around in a ditch like this.

Or of course, if you don’t want them to know you’ve been hanging around in a ditch like this, don’t.
