Grandma’s Fire

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 152 Color/Warmth

When I was young, my grandmother had an old wood burning stove that she would use to heat the kitchen and make meals. She would get up early on cold winter mornings to stir the ashes and rekindle the fire. Once started, it would only take a few minutes for grandma and the fire to bring the house back to life.

Ash colored embers
Stoked deep in smoldering warmth
Gave our morning life

Tree Top

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 151 Please/Tease

March winds twist and tease
Tumbling tree tops as they please
Swaying raptor nest

Safe beneath soft eagle’s breast
Talons clenched above young heads

Pinterest Fail

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 149 Excite/Karma

What do you get when you combine old shipping pallets, sharp objects, and blood thinners, with a touch of clumsiness? The answer is an ambulance ride, twenty stitches and an epic Pinterest “Fail” worthy of a Ronovan Haiku!

My Pinterest fail
Was predicted by Karma
Blood loss sure excites

Karma

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 149 Excite/Karma

Bought on an impulse
To excite man’s autumn night
This Karma(nn Ghia)

Bright red, sleek, and so shiny
It makes up for what’s not there
