Enjoying Time Alone or Partying with Friends



Party & Enjoy are the haiku prompt words for the #weeklyhaikuchallenge at Ronovan Writes. Most every one likes a party at one time or another. Some of the best parties are spent with friends and family when all are enjoying time together.


Party Time for All

Let’s have a party
Tea and cookies, cheese and wine
Enjoyment for all


Summertime is a great time to get together with others when kids are out of school. Maybe you like to swim, or picnic or camp or take a leisurely walk. Whatever it is summer offers its own kind of refreshment even when the weather is hot.

Enjoy summer days
Picnics, swimming, evening walks
Parties with your friends


Enjoying Summer Days


Sometimes, though, if you’re at all like me you enjoy those times you have alone. Time to relax and do whatever you want without interruptions or duties. I enjoy working alone in my art journal or reading a good book or taking a walk. Being alone can bring a refreshment you can’t have when a lot of people are around.


Time Alone

A party of one
Some alone time to enjoy
Not boring at all



What makes you happy? I love when days are sunny, but I also enjoy a good thunderstorm. I’m learning to look for the good in every day, and try to find ways to be happy. This next haiku kind of reflects that feeling when you look for special moments throughout the day.


Every Day a Party

When you are happy
Each day is like a party
Moments to enjoy

  1. Gayl,
    It’s so fun to see you sharing your Haiku again! I loved the progression from summer time party fun all the way through to a party of one. Your summer nature photos are so pretty too. Thank you for a beautiful lift to my evening! Blessings, love, and hugs! xo

    1. Thank you, Bettie! It’s fun to be writing them again. πŸ™‚ I’m so glad they brought you some joy.

      Blessings, love and hugs right back to you, dear sister/poet/friend! xoxo

    1. Me either. It’s kind of how I recharge after being with a lot of people. Although I do get energized when I am with people, too. πŸ™‚

      Blessings to you, dear Susan! xo

  2. Hi, Gayl. Love all of your haiku challenge poems–“Time Alone” is my favorite. Haiku is one of my favorite forms to write, probably because I’m one of those story-in-a-nutshell writers. I’m planning to explore a few other forms of Japanese poetry this year. Happy writing! <3 xo

    1. Thanks, Bette. I’m glad you enjoyed them. πŸ™‚ Yes, I really enjoy writing haiku. It’s a challenge to try to get across the picture you want in few words, but fun. I should probably explore other forms, too. It might be fun!

      Blessings to you!
