Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 331 FIRST & Heal

Healing Begins

By Tessa Dean

healing begins soon

country is under pressure

where should we start first


The Guidelines:

Take the two words and write a Haiku. I use Haiku in English (the link shows you how) as my style, which is 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third, but you can use what you like.



The Challenge Words!

Cold and Fall

The Weekly Smile for the Ninth of November, 2020 #weeklysmile

Well my smile this week is that I am getting a new computer. It has the touchscreen, an all-in-one HP (Hewlett Packard) and it also has a built in camera and microphone so I should be able to switch my live streams over to the new computer once I learn how it works. It even comes with a mouse and keyboard although they are not wireless. That can wait for now. What I have now is wired so no big deal for me.

I did my “Ask me Anything” video, live stream and so glad that is over.

ANIMALS
MUTE
SELLING

**********

The mute child stood watching the animals in the zoo. She was fascinated by all of them. Her mother could barely pull her away to move her on to the next cage. Suddenly she pointed to the man selling animal balloons. Her mother took her over and let her have her choice and she picked the koala bear. Later in the souvenir shop she also wanted a stuffed koala bear and when her mother asked the person selling the souvenirs the price she immediately told the girl no, which led to a crying spell. The mother had to pull her crying out of the store and lead her home. The child didn’t understand why she couldn’t have that one too. At four years old she didn’t understand price. The stuffed bears were considerably more expensive.

POINT

**********

Jack stood still, silent and pointed to the group of older kids that were searching for them. Jack and the younger boys slid quietly into the old barn and hid behind the bales of hay. “Come out, come out, wherever you are,” the older kids shouted. Jack and his group ignored them and they passed by the barn and headed into town. Once they were safely out of ear shot, Jack and his group moved off away from the town and headed home. They didn’t want to risk running into them again.

REMOTE
REACT
SKY

**********

Ramone pointed at the sky and Justin reacted. He pointed the remote at the drone and quickly armed it to fire at the other drone that had just appeared in their view. There was an explosion as the other drone blew up into a fiery mess dropping quickly to the ground. Their opponents came running over the hill shouting at the unfairness. Nothing in the rules said you could blow up your opponent’s drone they were shouting, but then again, nothing said you couldn’t was the reply. It was a standoff. The two teams just stood there glaring at each other while the one drone continued to burn.

YEAR
NOISE

**********

Karen poked John and said, “Look an ice cream social next week at the high school. Do you want to go?”

John thought about it a bit and then said, “Sure why not. It sounds like fun!”

“We went last year didn’t we,” Karen asked.

“It was a lot of noise, but we did have fun. Maybe we should take Betsy and Carl with us too. Mom’s been bugging me to take them on a double date for weeks now.”

“Well I guess so, but they will have to be home earlier than us so we will need somewhere else to go until curfew, ” Karen said.

SHARE YOUR WORLD 11-1-2020

SYW Artic Ice

Welcome to Share Your World!  

share-your-world

Melanie’s Rules:

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a Share Your World post.  Then post the link to that blog post or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  3.  Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!

Questions:

Which meal is your favorite: breakfast, lunch, or dinner? That depends. If I can have seafood, I don’t care what meal it is. Occasionally I will have breakfast foods at any of those meals. Depends on what I feel like eating.

Who do you admire most in the world? My mom (she is deceased now, but I admire her and how she lived her life).

With the obvious restrictions in place, what do you regret not doing in the last year? Seeing my youngest grandchild grow from newborn to an almost 1 year old. I watched him being born and saw him for about 2 months and then restrictions went into place. I got to see him last week for my birthday dinner and he is basically a toddler now. Missed most of the firsts.

The Weekly Smile for the 2nd of November, 2020 #weeklysmile

Ok I hit my 100 subscribers on youtube during the week and so I set up a live stream to have people ask me anything they want to ask. I had nothing in advance so all questions came out of the audience watching my live stream. Some were writing or youtube related, but there were some that were personal as well. Nothing I couldn’t answer thankfully. That was my smile for the week and I am now up to 108 subscribers. Moving right along. And here I was sure that no one would every subscribe to my channel. I need to have more faith in my abilities. 🙂
