Another week another Ronovan writes Haiku challenge.  Haiku, Tanka, Haibun…they’re all options.

I do like these, they allow me to explore the good, the bad and the downright ugly when it comes to my ability to write minuscule Japanese style poems.

Lets start with the 3/5/3 Haiku and do something quite obvious.


Silk on skin

a sweet summer breeze

cooling wind


Now for a right old defiling


Silk against my skin

caressing me as I move

I love the wife’s pants

Okay maybe a Tanka now.  Thats the old Haiku with two more lines added on of 7 syllables each because …well why the hell not!


Her skin is like silk

Caressing her, pulse racing

winter frosted breath

Oh wait I’m still wearing gloves

Think she needs a new razor


It’s something I guess.  Happy Tuesday!
