Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Sensational 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!)

As of February 3, 2010, Silly Haiku Wednesday has become “Sensational Haiku Wednesday”. Please adjust bookmarks and blog posts accordingly!

This week’s theme is: Reality

My submission for this week:

This life’s direction
In a diff’rent time would change
Move on, seize the day.

Next week’s theme: Comfort Zone


Thanks for the input, fellow haiku-ers! More than one person seemed to like “sensational” as a replacement word, so that is what I’ve chosen to go with. Of course you all know that I think you’re sensational regardless! Onward and upward! (New challenge graphics coming soon!)

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

    Carpe diem? All I get to seize are dirty dishes!

  2. I like the new name and your haiku, too! I’m so excited to see so many more haiku’ers going the fun!

    I Almost missed out! Anyway here are mine…

    Come on Get real.
    Tofu turkey is tofu.
    A fake fowl, how foul!

    What Reality.
    Might be just smoke and mirrors.
    But does it matter?

    Reality checked?
    Dreamers dream of things to do.
    Often stop the quest.

    How real is that?
    Pinch me, I don’t believe it.
    Ouch! That damn well hurt!

    • Jenn says:

      Sorry I pinched you, Knarf… ;)

      Great ones!

    • Lori Z. says:

      Someone is commenting on my life here… First of all, vegetarian chili with tofu is actually delicious. Secondly, if I didn’t dream all day then I would have no accomplishments to speak of.

      • Jenn says:

        I have to agree with Knarf on this one Lori… tofu… urgh!

        He’s a dreamer too – you wouldn’t believe the stuff he comes up with! Some of it entirely inappropriate for this blog, too! ;)

  4. Glad you found a name you liked, it’s not that different either. Ironically my haiku is probably one of the silliest I’ve ever done!

    Great haiku, move on and seize the day indeed! That’s similar to my thoughts last week, although more eloquently put! I hope you are seizing the day today!

    PS Comment Luv is picking older posts of mine – I wonder how I managed to break it!?

  5. I like your new name. I changed my heading to reflect that. I think I took this week’s theme way too serious, however. I enjoyed yours and Knarf’s above.

    Knarf gets the prize, again, for his eloquence. And his abundance!
    Here is this humble scribe’s offering for this week:

    Real as it can get?
    What you see is what you get?
    Actually, yes!

  7. jazzbumpa says:

    Maybe not silly, but I can’t resist being a smart ass.

    I might also have set a new record for fewest words in a Haiku.

    Four and five syllable words ROCK!

    And to Knarf, I’ll say, yes, it matters a lot.

  8. Melli says:

    I’d be happier to seize it if it were more green and less white! You’re getting deep now! I’m deep too… but not in thoughts!

  9. Troublemaker says:

    OK I give in and am finally going to try one this is my reality hehe

    Fluid everywhere
    Leaking oozing non stopping
    Driving me crazy

    I like the name change and I like that you post next week’s theme.

    Your haiku makes me want to get up and go.

  12. Time? Change? as in time machine? Or as in just moved to a new location? Ahh whatever, just seize it anyway, right?

    • Jenn says:

      Maybe had things been done differently… maybe if I were born a few years earlier… could mean lots of things :)

  13. Thom says:

    Love the new name. Great choice. Thanks for linking me and your haiku is the bomb :) This is a real go getter haiku :)

  14. Lori Z. says:

    Very inspirational, in fact, it’s SENSATIONAL!

    Your elision makes me think of “Diff’rent Strokes” though not for long because it was before my time and I know nothing about it other than the title.
