Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #90 Friend & Shiver


my friend got a cold
he’s shivering and in pain
hot cold sweat on him


when he looks at her
sends shivers down her spine
are they friends in love?


on this cold evening
she’s shivering frenziedly
can I come in, friend?

Just Jot It January 19th – Climate

Nature always wears the colours of the spirit
Could be cold, hot, windy, sunny or any climate
Nature becomes me, going with or against the flow
Every day is different, enjoying the sun, the rain or snow
On top of the world, we kissed and nature’s our witness
Look around us, trees, birds, hills – they’re all breathless
Daffodils are popping out, cheerful bulbs burst into life
Spring is here, part of our life now and the afterlife
Summer morning, all serene, flower’s scent is heaven
Starting the day on this bright day, clouds like cotton
Autumn’s golden voice, sings with birds and flowers
Don’t forget the palm, coconut, banana trees and firs
Leaves had fallen on cold days, winter is wonderful
Time to have our Christmas tree with tinsel and bauble
Reflection through an early dawn or the lovely sunset
Admiring some stone friezes curved with rosette

Snow This Morning


What a beautiful day! I woke up this morning to this pure and bright snowy day. Him Indoors had to shovel the snow in our garden path, as well as the front of our house, between the garages. He didn’t mind at all, it’s like his morning exercise. And I have to take lots of photos. I love taking photos, especially of the different seasons. Just like Thursday morning, we came back from our morning swim and the sky was brilliant. Sunny morning, clear sky, we can see the Alps from our place. Simply wonderful!

Skiing – Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille


Many moons ago, when HRH the son was around 4, we decided to have a skiing holiday in Austria. It was a really nice skiing resort and the son had free skiing lessons in the children’s club for 4 days. That meant, Him Indoors and I had some free time to ourselves. The sun was shining, snow covered the hills and mountains, leaves had fallen and such a bright day. We walked around and watched the son and the other children learned to ski. We watched other people skiing and snow-boarding.

Leaves had fallen
On a cold and snowy day
Wonderful winter

Snow! Miniature Writing Challenge #22

fresh snow falling
our shadow on the snow
a bright day ahead

fresh snow falling
so pure and white all over
new hope has begun

our shadow on the snow
kissed under the mistletoe
Christmas together

a bright day ahead
some fresh woods in the fireplace
drinking warm mulled wine

Limerick Challenge Week 12: Free Flowing!


On this chilly night, I can tell
We’re safe all years, that’s swell
Hopefully we can connect
A deal for us to select
Join us for life is always belle



Try to put butter in a sentence
Bread with butter and jam at once
What’s next, I ask
Have a tea in a flask
It will always be in your presence



Next year will be different, I hope
We won’t be balancing on a tightrope
We’ll be safe, for sure
With you, mi amour
With coloured hardstone, a positive kaleidoscope
