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: Parent(s or ing, your choice)

My submission for this week:

Childhood creates you
Gentle hands, firm stands, much love
My babes benefit


Next week’s theme: Challenge!

Last week’s Haiku had a very small turn out – it occurs to me that we’re not reaching out to share the love, folks! Let’s make next week’s haiku a challenge for your readers to join us in our most excellent haiku adventure, shall we?! Grab one of these, and post it as your Haiku Challenge …along with your challenge haiku of course! (make sure you link it back here!).


Ask your friends to tell me in a comment that you referred them. The person who brings in the most new haiku-ers will guest-post on my blog on December 20th :) NEW Haiku-ers are welcome to join in the challenge too!


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):

  4. Hi Jenn,
    Hope you had a good week, thanks for linking me up last week, blogging on the ipod is quite fustrating, I couldn’t even work out how to add in links or anything! Next time I need to remember to schedule a post. Been off work for a few days so just getting round to a catch up now.

    Great haiku as always this week and I like the sound of your challenge for next week. Not sure about the whole guest post thing though, that sounds quite scary and not such a reward ;) how trusting of you to let someone else post on your blog!

  11. Jenn, thank you for the welcome and nice comment. I fixed my blog following your directions. I love blogger but one of the things they’re not real good at is ‘splainin’ stuff to non-htmlers.

    That said, I love your haiku. It’s very affirming to parents!
