Haiku Friday – Bells & Ring

23 Dec


Happy Holidays everyone and welcome to another week of ‘Haiku Friday’!


Bells and Ring are this week’s prompt words chosen by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes.

I had a hard time with this week’s prompt words but I hope I did okay. 

Ron hosts a challenge that anyone could participate in called Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge every Monday, and you have until Sunday to create a post featuring your haiku poem. He is an author and poet and also does author interviews and much more on his blog. Be sure to check it out. Read Ron’s Haiku Prompt Challenge Guidelines for more information.

Santa the Clown

by Vashti Q

Ring the jingle bells

It’s Christmas at the Circus

Candy cane hued tents

Santa’s loose trousers

Bulbous nose glittering red

Smile painted on white


Flower squirting green tinsel

Worn with playful elegance

    A different and fun take on it. Not easy to say something different with these words, indeed. Well done, Vashti, and happy holidays!

        So far, so good! My 80 yr. old poppa survived triple bypass on Thursday and is well on his way to recovering in record time. #BestChritmasEver ❤
