No fame beyond our
Home-cooking artfully placed
Avoids renowned war
This weeks Haiku challenge words ‘fame & war’ from Ronovan at RonovanWrites were a bit heavy for me at first. I even momentarily considering doing a separate post for ‘create’– Jamie’s 52 Weeks of Photos Challenge word (those who follow know I slyly manage them both into a single post each week).
But, dangit, they aren’t called challenges for nothing. So, with that thought in mind, I took a lighter approach to his words to combine them with her word, and, voila!
Inspired by my fussiest eater and his dad’s attempts to create a plate that would be less of a struggle for us to at least get him to try, a Haiku came to me in minutes. This after days of staring at a blank sheet–ya, not even scribbles of a Haiku, completely dry. Did I have writer’s block? Perhaps 🙂 . Anyhoo, moving on…
In case directing you to RonovanWrites twice already wasn’t enough, look here if you have any wonderment about Haiku guidelines used in these challenges. This was going to be the first week I didn’t meet the opposites criteria, content with the feeling it was good as it was. Then I went to his page (first link) and read the following in paragraph 3– ‘This week I am going to attempt to stay to a truer sense of the opposites of the two sentences formed.’ Bring it on!–I said to self, and decided to rework my last line to suit. Thank you Ronovan for that unintended nudge.
It is true, Johnny will never be known for his magnificent creations on a plate outside our home, but they have stopped the famed battles that once ensued when anything other than spaghetti (slight exaggeration) was placed before our youngest lad.
And remember, it’s never too late to join in on the fun! Melissa Xx
