Ronovan writes Decima prompt #56 Symphony of life

I’m sure you don’t have to be told

the pleasure gained from listening

enraptured as the songbird sings

though whether it be wet or cold

his notes will shine like liquid gold

from his high perch up in the trees

his joyful tunes ride on the breeze

we can be sure he does not need

a written score from which to read

his repertoire is sure to please.

Cruising white-tipped waves on a restless sea

of uncharted depths cloaked in mystery

remains the ideal life for me

Ronovan writes Decima prompt #52 Darkness before morning

The announcement that we all expected

came cutting through the usual noise

of children occupied with toys,

from household chores thoughts deflected,

eyes and ears to screens directed,

sombre is the next announcement

as they hear the dark pronouncement

today life has come to an end

for well loved husband, father, friend

reflecting on a life well spent

Ronovan writes #Haiku challenge #350

His chirp continues

through the soft orange twilight

while street lamps waken.

Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #201

While I was sitting in my room

from next door’s radio came a tune

a few minutes passed as I listened

feeling slow tears as my eyes glistened

knowing I’d heard the tune before

probably from some movie score

Barber’s Adaggio for strings apparently

which William Orbit arranged so fluently.

Ronovan writes Haiku challenge #349

On crisp morning air

calm rhythmic breaths form soft clouds

birth of Winter mists.

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #122 #Feeding frenzy forgotten

Dan the drake and Debbie duck

truly felt that at last their luck

had changed when to their delight

there was not another duck in sight

for to swim alone was such a treat

as there would be enough to eat

no jostling shoving that they must

endure in order to secure a crust

now when bread is cast upon the lakes

a leisurely paddle is all it takes.

Samiscribbles weekend writing prompt #199 #Tables of Terror

Discoveries found quite episodic

gave to us a list that rang melodic

so even those who would feel it all too much

of a strain could successfully remain in touch

and not appear to their peers quite so dense

as they recited the names of the elements.

In Western skies

Hyperion’s son

in fiery

chariot,

expelling dark eyed Luna’s,

cold nocturnal grip
