Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge 279

Welcome to this week’s Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge for my feature called Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes which, to be honest, is now so much more regular than any other type of post I put up here that I might have to change the title to Most Times I Don’t Rhymes.

If you are looking to read some rhyming, then there are quite a number of limerick posts and occasional poetry attempts to read here. If you are looking to enjoy reading some rhyming poetry and limerick posts, then there are plenty of other blogs.

So this week’s Haiku prompt words are:

Nature and Nurture

Now, technically, almost everything I’ve posted for the Haiku challenge has actually been a Senryu, that is it’s still the 5-7-5 syllable format but is more on the human and, if I may say so, ironic or humour type of slant. A Haiku is meant to be more reflective of the natural world than that. So, with these prompts, I’ll have to work hard to avoid doing a real Haiku.

they fail to nurture
nature of Conservatives
let’s please vote them out

So, I’ve managed to avoid a proper Haiku again, but this time gone without humour or irony too.

Good honest work I’d say.


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.
