Counting up the weeks certainly makes one more aware of the passage of time.  While travelling last week, I skipped the challenge.  But time moved forward none the less, and here we are at week 7 of the 52 Week Photo challenge hosted by Bluedaisyz.  ‘Blue’ is this weeks photo word and RonovanWrites has challenged us to write our Haiku using the words ‘rare and harsh.’  The poem came before the photo.

Go on over and check out RonovanWrites to be directed to other great writers in the poetry challenge. Then hop over and visit these folks who have a ‘blue’ photo of their own, Sandra, Erika, Jamie, and Roz.

*Sandra at Wild Daffodil and I have done a wee Renga, our second one–here’s our first.  It happens spontaneous and adds a bit of extra fun to the whole Haiku challenge.  Here it is in full:

On rare occasion

I imbibe much and suffer

Harsh headaches always


Away on a weekend break

White wine for me, no headache


Sulphite free that wine

Must be grapes sent from heaven

To you in Devon


Walking on air along cliffs

Clear head and cobalt sea drifts


Fresh air is the best

Remedy for my sore head

Sleep?  No!  Walk instead
