Incessant Chatter: Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge #49


This is my contribution to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Prompt Series. Thanks, as always, to Ronovan for the opportunity to practice my writing. Here’s the challenge this week:

The Prompt Words
Lock & Gab
My Example
A lock of your hair
Stays silent lips forever
Gab secrets no more
The following is how the sentences should read.
A lock of your hair stays silent lips forever.
Stays silent lips forever, gab secrets no more.


Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.




I never like to read any of the haiku anyone posts before writing my own so that I am not influenced by what I’ve read. It seems in our case, great minds think alike πŸ™‚ we opened the same way. Love the haiku BTW.

I like that–‘a lock with no key’. Load up the crampons and oxygen for a quick escape.

Bit of a silly question — I don’t know a lot about haikus. Is that how they should all be read — i.e. repeating the middle sentence? Either way enjoyed both yours and Ronovan’s!

    It’s not a silly question at all πŸ™‚ the sentences are put together to act as an example because the first and second line should make a sentence and the second and third line should also make a sentence – it’s just to demonstrate that they do. I’m learning so much about the haiku. One of the things I find most challenging is that there should ideally be two opposing ideas. I’m glad you enjoyed it πŸ˜€

Hi Melissa! Love it! I should print your haiku on T-shirts and hand them out as gifts for certain people. Ha, ha! πŸ˜‰

Love that last line, “a lock with no key” – familiarity in this haiku for me, nicely done.

Nice haiku! It definitely speaks of a writers, mind πŸ™‚
