Silly Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Silly Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!

The basics:

Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)

This week’s theme is: Appreciation – your choice of context.

My silly submission for this week:

We are together
My babies, husband and me
Living, loving, life

As long time participants know, my oldest was away for 6 weeks this summer, and returned to the nest this past weekend. I felt as though I’d been holding my breath all that time, and can only now breathe deeply again. Sweet relief…


Next week’s theme: Freestyle – open theme.

Note: Nothing makes me happier than to see new people getting “hooked on haiku”! Keep it going to make it to the “Hooked on Haiku List

  1. I am, and this time it’s definitely silly :D (Though the story from last year is true & serious – we were dying for a laundromat to wash our traveling clothes without spending a fortune; this one was a block from our hotel!)

  2. Great Haiku Jenn, it’s great to appreciate your family and being together. I couldn’t decide on what to write about to I choose a few people and did Haiku’s for them.

  8. I am forwarding this email to you from my dear friend, Deacon Emil, who yearns to be a part of the haiku silliness, even though he is on vacation and has had difficulty accessing his Blogger doings:

    “Have vacated LR and am hiding in WVa w/Carol. No wi-fi for pc. Tried to do it on BlackBerry but failed. Please post my Silly Haiku Wednesday poem to Jenn for me, thanks.

    Slipped away from work
    to relax in the mountains
    and just smell the air.

    That’s my input to “Appreciation”.
    Actually, I have another as well; if you would be so kind:

    West Virginia
    gives me a beautiful place
    to re-member me.”

    I just love Deacon Emil!

    His blog can be found at

    Thanks, Jenn!
