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: Light – your choice of context

My submission for this week:

Our life together
Not always sweetness and light
But it is all good.


Next week’s theme: Time

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

To participate in this week’s event, please use the following code in your post on your own blog (if you don’t have a blog, post your Haiku as a comment):

    I can echo that sentiment about Amoeba and I! My life is so much better with him in it.

  2. Quilly says:

    Why isn’t your comment love working? Does it love me no more?

  3. Like the Haiku this week – I think there will be many interpretations of the word light! One of them stuck out for me this week though, we’ve dramatically changed season this week, there’s quite a lot of condensation build up on the cars – not long until we have to scrape I think!

  4. I like yours! I asked my husband for an idea and if I’d listened to him, mine would have been about light beer. It is NOT.

  7. Thanks Thom for letting me know I disappeared from the linky thing; so I’m baaaack… lol

    And yes Quilly, that commentluv thing seems to be a bit pick-and-choosy today, it forgot me too in my earlier comment. I wonder what happened?

  9. Thanks for the great prompt, Jenn. As usual I couldn’t decide on just one interpretation — so I didn’t!

    Thank you for hosting such a great series! I love haiku!

    I learned two things while just trying to use Mr. Linky & post a comment! One, I now know your name (see my entry blog lol) and two, you (I) cannot press tab after putting my name in the 1st field of Mr. Linky-it doesn’t jump to the link field, it jumps to the previous Mr. Linky post!! I entered my Light haiku in the music one on accident, and didn’t realize it until I was reading all the comments about music lol!

    Anyway, sorry for the long comment, I tend to babble. Have a Great Day!

  11. Hi, Jenn —

  12. So sorry this is late. It’s been a rough couple of days…

  13. Thanks for the invite.
    One of my favorite things?
    Quick witted Haiku!

    Rather I should pen:
    Nit-witted Haiku prose is
    Specialty of mine!

    Now onto topic:
    Darkness is absence of LIGHT.
    Lord, please let me shine!

    I have not written a haiku in a while…I might have to get in on this action. I was all about limericks a couple of months ago. I will be thinking for next week.

    Thansk for stopping by my place yesterday!

    Your promotion of haiku is very much appreciated. As you may know, I have written haiku and published many of them in a book that is available on kindle and paperback. Like you, I am trying to promote the reading, and also the writing of haiku. Good luck.
