Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge 278

Well, they say a week is a long time in politics. But no one says ‘a week is a very long time between Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenges’ though, do they?

No, it is just a week.
And it’s not long.

However, regardless of the effects of Ronovan or politics on time, welcome to my attempt at this week’s Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge, a pair of prompt words primed for prompting poets, verbalising versifiers and encouraging them to shoehorn syllables into oddly ordered odes.

Shame it’s not about alliteration really

Anyway, this weeks prompt words are Vapor and Howl, and howl is what British English readers will do when they see vapour spelled in the American flavor, or ‘flavour’ as we correctly spell that word over here too.

Right, bit of a Pratchetty feel to this week’s effort I think.

final, primal howl
curl of vapour, empty boots
wizard in training

Got to be careful how you wave your wand.


Why not come back next week? It probably won’t feel like long to me or you but will have definitely been another very long time in British politics.


Note: If you like what I wrote up there and, lets face it, it is quite unlikely but still possible, then why not press one of the buttons that shares it to other people you know?

Or of course, if you don’t want them to know you’ve enjoyed this, or just feel ashamed now and want to keep it to yourself, don’t.

  1. Anything Prattchettesque is fine by me. In fact, thatโ€™s put me in the mood for a bit of Terryโ€™s social commentary

    Good work, as you were!

    1. Thank you Plot.
      Perhaps the wizard was following some Pratchett philosophy…
      “Build a man a fire, and he’ll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.”
