In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge: Luck and Hope
Pick out a brownie
Trust in luck, hope for the best,
Mum’s work got some ‘luxury chocolate brownies’ and she brought home a blue one and a white one. Luckily, the blue one was macadamia 😀

Five days at a time
Just get through that working week
Thrive on the weekend
Mantra of so many
Must be nice to live to work
Like a fairy tale
Some get there, I know
Shouldn’t be so cynical
Let’s chase that passion.
In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge
My dreams are my own.
Thought: the especial freedom
No one can steal yours.
Thank you Ronovan for another great prompt!
In response to Ronovan Writes’ Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge: Want & Tatter
Don’t play with my wants,
Stretching me, destroying me,
Don’t tatter my heart.
In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge: New & Time
Let the sun shine in
Let time pause for a moment
Let you be renewed
Good mood today. Taking a break from study; shall deal with consequences tomorrow.
In response to Ronovan’s Weeklu Haiku Challenge: Reach and Vie
Vying for more time
Must buckle down & study
Reach for the good grades
Uni is hard T-T but I’ve had the first round of assignment results come back with two As and a B so I know the hard work I’m putting in pays off. At least I can understand teaching in theory – next month I’ll have to put this into practice!
‘Cept I’ve got another seven assignments to hand in before then (omigosh it really is that many!). Cabin fever, here I come!
In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge: Ill and Rest
A sleep too restless
Tiredness leaves me open
illness in autumn
I am not sick, which is quite new for me at this time of year. I hope it’s the start of a healthy flu season for me, since last year I picked up various infections and had three separate instances of being horribly sick, along with the usual sniffles and irritants winter must include.
Having said that, I haven’t been sleeping too well lately, but I think that’s because I haven’t had the time to write so much, so my imagination is going haywire and treating me to lucid dreams at night. Seriously, so far I’ve explored cities, jungles, wastelands, spoken to hundreds of people, solved the odd murder, and gotten at least a dozen different superpowers in my sleep. I should be happy about that, but it’s making it difficult for me to wake up.
Oh, and just a fun one to finish off:
Rest today, but am
Looking forward to getting
ill from choc-o-late
See what I did there? 😉
In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge: Foul & Sweet
Was a treat from holidays
But the sweet turned foul.
This happened to me just last night, so I wished I’d taken a picture of the off chocolate before I threw it in the bin. Actually, it was the very same chocolate which I had written a haiku about after I’d come back from holidays last year. I had called it “green tea and daggers“. Above is the photo I took after I came back from holidays (that’s 11th October 2014 for my American friends).
It was my last green tea flavoured kitkat, and it had gone all permanently half-melted…
On another note, how many syllables are in chocolate? I pronounce it as “choc’late” so I wrote it like that to emphasis that pronunciation, but I suppose there must be some people who pronounce it properly. Does anyone here pronounce the whole three syllables?
And thanks again to Ronovan for another great haiku challenge!
In response to Ronovan Writes’ Weekly Haiku Challenge: Miss & Past
Though you have now passed,
You will still inspire us.
We will all miss you.
Rest In Peace Terry Pratchett, creator, satirist, brilliantly clever.
P.S. We will keep the orangutans safe.
In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge
When one day’s delay
left Beast heartbroken, dying,
Beauty’s heart broke too.
We take for granted
The love we have for others
Don’t leave it too late…
