Haiku #81: Sleepy Pelicans

The words this week for Ronovan’s Haiku challenge are trill & final.

I’ve used trill, but substituted terminating for final.
I’m using the Haiku in English Form (5 / 7 / 5 syllables)

I couldn’t decide on the photo. I know. Why not have all three!





Supposed to make two sentences…

No strident trill from cozy pelicans on high.
Cozy pelicans on high terminating sleep.

Not sure I nailed the ‘opposites’ rule.

Haiku Challenge: This Old Woman

I’ve been wanting to try Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge.

It’s taken me ages to write something which I think qualifies and still allows me to show you my upcoming sewing project. I scored 3 metres of vintage material on eBay, and it arrived today. Hard to believe its 30 years old! The pattern is vintage as well, but I loved it at first sight. I expect to make a skirt and the strappy top.


I’m using the Haiku Poem – English Form. 17 syllables over three lines in a 5 / 7 / 5 pattern. Two complete sentences overlapping in the middle. Supposed to make some sort of sense and point to opposing ideas. I think I’ve done okay.

Ronovan gives two words to be used – Cover, Colour – synomyns are allowed as long as it doesn’t change the meaning. Here goes …


this Old Woman shall

don pink broderie anglaise,

the colour of Girl

That was fun.

Have a nice day / evening / whatever!  🙂
