TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Bucket.


Buckets of Flowers

This week we have been given ‘bucket’ by TJ for his household challenge.  The only bucket I have at home is the bog standard mop bucket we all have kicking around! Not very exciting.

I then realised that I had made the ‘bucket’ bag not that long ago to keep my knitting in, but that had already starred in a haiku of its own, so it is time to think of something else.

We had to nip out this afternoon to get some bits from the supermarket, and look what we saw….yes buckets of flowers! Ok, they aren’t technically my household object, but I am going for poetic licence on this one!

Beautiful flowers:

Fresh, vibrant colours displayed

in dull, black buckets.



Ronovan’s Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge #71 ‘Cover’ and ‘Colour.’

We have been given the prompt words of ‘colour’ and ‘cover’ for Ron’s Weekly Haiku Challenge this week which gives plenty of scope for a nature Haiku,

Here is my attempt:

Dull, covered by murky grey.

Orange brings colour.

Episode 384: Veracity Challenge.

I have been challenged by my lovely friend Ritu to take part in this latest challenge. It is to write a paragraph without using adjectives! Oh this is going to be tricky for me, as I am inclined to use more than my fair share of them. I am going to have a go though of course, so let’s see if I can wean myself off them in order to write this paragraph.

1) Write a paragraph without using a single adjective.

2) Keep the link of the original Veracity Challenge in your post (so that the creator of the challenge may receive a pingback)

3) Anyone can join the challenge, you don’t have to be nominated!

4) Nominate 6 Bloggers for this challenge

I sat at my laptop for a few minutes trying to think of something to say that did not involve using adjectives. It was not easy as I kept having to push words to the back of my mind that wanted to come out and play; they were not used to being ignored. This paragraph is so flat without them though and I am bored of it myself! I need some colour, as this is too grey. I need ADJECTIVES! 

I made quite a hash of this challenge as I thought I might, but it was fun having a stab at it 🙂

I would like to nominate anyone who fancies having a go at this challenge to participate.
