I Spy

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #144 – Wonder/Spy

Small wonder of verse
Was missed by others at first
Then spy rhymed coerce

And then for all our trouble
He penned another double

Snooze Repose

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #142 – Spring/Fresh

Words and Image ©2017 Clarence Holm

In spring garden gnomes
Rise above last winter’s frost
Fresh faced in the light

Dew stained face found as he was
Slumber struck snoozing repose

Generations

Dandelion

Last night I received word that a cousin had died and I grieved for a loss of a life. But then I remembered the family he left and I knew his was a life well spent.

Dandelions wait
For a breeze and a moment
Knowing winds will blow

Beauty lives in that instant
One puff and new lives take flight

Cabin Hides

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #140 – Twist/shout

Shouting like banshees
Cutthroats twist their dagger’s hilt
Spoiling for their share

Slashing, burning, pirate’s pride
Gold doubloons this cabin hides

                                              -Clarence Holm

Shout

If you don’t speak, you have no voice. Be brave and shout your opinions to the world.

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #140 – Twist/shout

Simple twist of fate
Can turn a world upside down
Right it with a shout
