Dreaming Haiku Dreams

These boats moored in Fishing Boat Harbour Fremantle looked delightful as we enjoyed our meal of fish and chips by the water.

I float through the years

Discovering new oceans

Of unfulfilled dreams


The prompts for the final Ronovan Writes haiku challenge for 2015 are New and Year

I would like to end this year of great challenges with a great big thank you to Ronovan for hosting this challenge which has been the source of so much creativity and wonderful conversations amongst the devotees of haiku.

Ronovan’s recommendations for writing haiku are quite specific and I like this especially as it adds to the mental challenge to adhere to the structure of 5 7 5 syllables and ideally 2 separate sentences formed from lines 1 and 2 combined and 2 and 3 combined.

Petrarch is known for his Petrarchan Sonnet form and I think we should know this particular form of haiku as the Ronovanan Haiku henceforth in recognition of Ronovan’s devotion to this structure.

I have also enjoyed the chance to link the prompts with my own photos which has again made my mind wake up each Monday and go through various mental gymnastics to fit all the criteria with a suitable image.

    1. Many thanks for the lovely write up. Sorry the last line inspired melancholy. I meant that there are oceans of dreams still to explore. Best wishes. TJ
