Sometimes I Don't Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge 289

Welcome to Bryntin’s latest weekly attempt at the Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge, normally posted on the Tuesday of every week.

Now, at last, you can say ‘You know, Tuesdays aren’t so bad. At least Bryntin provides me with some entertainment for two minutes out of the one thousand four hundred and forty minutes a Tuesday normally lasts for – although I’m asleep for quite a lot of those.

But that, of course, is only if it’s actually any good.

If it’s not, it’s just a Tuesday for the whole one thousand four hundred and forty minutes with two of the valuable wakeful minutes completely wasted on this rubbish.

Anyway, this week’s word prompts for Bryntin to use are: Dream and March

So, by the tried and trusted method of having a bit of think and then making something up that seems to fit in the syllable measuring section of this handy website (that is, the measurement of how many there are, not how long they are which he imagines is entirely dependent on the font and screen size), Bryntin has now come up with three topical (at time of writing) verses.

Which, he feels, is not too bad going for a start of only two words, but the verses do look pretty world-weary and cynical. Age does that to a person.

dream to march away
from tabloid vitriol sure
but to canada?


pm johnsons march
to his american dream
europhile nightmare


in davos they march
pleading for planet action
can’t only dream now


That’ll probably be an extra minute reading this week then, but Bryntin thinks that you can easily knock it off next Monday to get it back. Who’d know?


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.
