Haiku/Tanka Challenge (6/29/20)

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 312 – Intent / Thought

Distant meadowlark’s
Sweet singing captures my thoughts
-Who cares the intent

No reason for mountain view
No answers for a sunrise

Tanka 4/8/2020

Around Me…

so much happening while I stay home, avoiding the Corona Virus! In the background, the news drones on while elsewhere the death toll rises.


August whirlwinds drift
above farmer’s black tilled fields
-distant church bells toll

Prairie birds don’t heed the sounds
they’re just like the clouds above
