Weekly Haiku Challenge: Source & Thought

In response to Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge: Source & Thought

Longest time in thought,

Reflecting, meditating

Now we’ve reached the source.

What a nice, peaceful prompt for this week. Of course, I can’t help but think of it through the lens of an assignment. I’d spend roughly eighty percent of time reading, researching, and wrapping my head around the topic, then only twenty percent of time actually writing the thing. Still, it means that I’m learning something! Always a plus 🙂

Weekly @RonovanWrties Haiku Challenge: Reach and Vie

 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!

@RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku Challenge: Ill & Rest

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? 😉

@RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku Challenge: Foul & Sweet

In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge: Foul & Sweet

 Unopened choc’late

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!

Sir Terry Pratchett

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.

@RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku Challenge: Beast& Day

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…
