Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge 280

Welcome to perhaps the only regular feature presently on this blog which, if you regularly visit on a Tuesday, regularly has a new post here. Every Tuesday.

Well, so far, in this current spate of regularity anyway.

Ronovan sets a challenge to write a Haiku (or alternative Japanese form) with his prompt words included, which to be honest, isn’t that much of a challenge, certainly compared to ‘Here, tame this lion with this matchstick‘ or ‘Hey, I challenge you to dematerialise, rematerialise on another planet on the other side of the galaxy, pick an indigenous plant and then rematerialise back here holding it.

Those are really tough challenges. Particularly for a thick Cornish lardarse who has no idea how to build a molecular transporter. Or train lions.

Sticking a few words in a syllabilically strict (sod off red spellchecker line, your alternatives are based on a dictionary, which just doesn’t have the right words) is generally a bit easier than those then, although Bryntin is obviously now prepared should the words ‘lion’ and ‘matchstick’ materialise.

So anyway, this weeks prompt words are: Valley and Peak

Not sure if this is a proper Haiku, probably more a sepukku, but seeing as Bryntin isn’t a proper writer, let’s not worry about that too much. No guts,no glory.

poles melt, high winds peak
the valleys flood, forests burn
you’ll die arguing

Brexit and impeachment are diverting and may even seem important, but they won’t be if this carries on.


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.
