Sometimes I Don’t Rhymes: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge 293

Welcome to Bryntin’s effort at this week’s Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge, which this week is coming to you on a Tuesday. It has actually been coming to you on a Tuesday for a number of Tuesday’s now, but this is the first one on this week’s Tuesday.

Some readers might be wondering if Bryntin has run out of ways to introduce his posts but he can assure them that this one will always work, no matter what week it is. But only on Tuesdays.

Some regular readers may have the impression that they’ve read that intro somewhere before. Bryntin would like to assure them that they are not going mad and in fact did read exactly the same words last week. Bryntin has just copy and pasted last weeks intro to prove the point that it works and has saved himself quite a bit of effort too.

Some very regular readers – who also have a very good memory – might have already worked out that the above is in fact the third time he’s posted the first two paragraphs and the second time for the third and are probably already thinking ‘God, how long is he going to stretch this thin joke out for?’

Bryntin would like to inform them that thinly stretched jokes are a feature of this website, not a bug, and surely they must expect nothing else but his typical subversion and very thin jokes by now and, if not, can’t have been paying attention before.

So this weeks prompt words are: Drain and Rain, which are of course very apt considering Bryntin’s homeland has been subjected to copious amounts of rain over the last two weeks, along with destructive storm force winds.

He is wondering when it’s going to let up, so all this extra water can have a chance to drain away and he can have a man safely go up to mend the bits of roof that seem to have been recently tempted to go travelling and perhaps considering leaving the locality to which they had previously been rather attached.

Anyway, a haiku,

lashing wind and rain
loosens roof tiles aplenty
drains bryntin’s wallet

and a bonus one.

the rain continues
atmospheric human drain
blocked, sick and angry

If you’d like to read some more haiku, and perhaps some much better ones, please do nip off to Ronovan Writes and have a look at some other proper writers efforts here.


Note: There used to be a bit of text down here that encouraged readers to share anything Bryntin writes that they thought was good or made them laugh.
Bryntin has realised that not many bothered much with that so he has replaced that paragraph with this long bit of alternative text, in the form of one very long sentence, which actually doesn’t make any point at all except to make you pretty annoyed that, if you have made the effort to read this far, you have now found it was actually just a complete waste of your time. Thank you.

    1. Keep looking at the forecasts hopefully but it won’t be safe for them to work for a few days yet. Meantime, the wind can now get places it couldn’t before, creating more mess up there!

      Good rhyming on my non-rhyming post! 😉
