RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #75 Charm & Look

Ronovan gives us some stupendous words again this week: "charm and look." I love all the meanings of these words and how versatile they are. In addition, we are asked to use opposites. Ronovan says: "If your first sentence is about how lovely something is, the second sentences should be how horrible it is." Make … Continue reading RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #75 Charm & Look

Write to Inspire

I officially started my blog on 16th November 2014, but the original objective was to raise visibility of my debut novel, Eleven Miles, which was published on the 16th of December.

Since then, I have made so many good friends on WordPress. I have learned a lot, especially by participating in Blogging 101. Most of all, I have had a lot of fun exploring other blogs and posting a variety of posts and pages on my own blog.

coachI am particularly proud of my time-traveling Coach Tours, which have proved to be very popular. The latest, number seven, visited the Shandu Summer Palace, where my tourists met Kublai Khan and Marco Polo. In the words of one of my friends, “it was a hoot!”

I saw on the weather broadcast for Thanksgiving Day that northern California was finally receiving some relief from the drought. Heavy snowfall was falling in an attempt to remedy some of the worst drought conditions ever recorded in our history.

The woman – All ebony hair, long and hanging down Stands – At the edge of an emotional abyss Waiting – For the terror to subside And for her heart to stop breaking.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #64 Tide & Flesh

It is Haiku Friday and I am excited to share Ronovan's words this week: tide and flesh. I used family in place of flesh because I like the connotation that it gave to my haiku. I am calling this, "Family Relations." Thank for popping in. I am glad to see you all!
