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 became “Sensational Haiku Wednesday”. Please adjust bookmarks and blog posts accordingly!

This week’s theme is: Chrysalis

My submission for this week:

Quiet reflection
Changes begin, but slowly
What of the future?

P.S. I just realized that this is my 200th post! :)

Next week’s theme: Metamorphosis

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):

    Your poem today echos my life and thoughts, yet I went in a different direction with my haiku.

    Beautiful Haiku my friend. Well done :)

    Lovely Haiku Jenn. I’ve hit a bit of writer’s block. The best I could do is this:

    Monday morning dread.
    Cocooning under blankets
    Waiting for Tuesday.

    • Jenn says:

      Everyone is entitled to that, Knarf! I hope you don’t feel dread though. That would make me sad!! Love you!

  4. Hi Jenn,
    Great haiku! I think I was a week ahead of myself with mine! I’m sure I can come up with something though.

    Yay 200th post! I just checked to see what number I’m at; it’s 174 already! I’ll need to be careful not to miss it, I’m clocking up posts really quickly at the moment!

    Hope the recovery is going well and the pain is subsiding.

      Thanks Jade – I don’t have extreme pain anymore, thankfully. It’s more fatigue and strain now as my sight develops and towards the end of the day when I get tired, but really not too bad even so. Better every day!

  5. Nessa says:

    Congratulations on your 200th!

    Lovely haiku. Resting. Dreaming.

    Woot!! 200 posts; that awesome :)

    Here’s my attempt:

    Come out of the shell
    Awaken to a new life
    Try not to look back.

      Thanks Liz :D It was happenstance that I even noticed the #, but it’s fun to make note of anyway!

    Happy WEDNESDAY!

    Ah Jenn, changes may be slow and we may not know what the future will bring but that is what is so wonderfully mysterious and magical about our lives! You said so much in just 3 lines! Powerful.

    Am also chuckling at Knarf’s entry…that is how I’ve been for the past month nursing my chronic sinus/ear infection and whatever tummy virus that I picked up along the way! Only now just starting to feel human again!

    • Jenn says:

      Thanks! What an outlet our haiku is for us, isn’t it? This is a year of huge changes for me, and my eyes are only the beginning. Exciting stuff!

      Knarf is one of the most sensitive men I’ve ever known, so the thought of him curled up dreading the day really makes me unhappy!

      Hope you feel better soon Polly!! I’ve certainly been there, and it’s no fun.

    AJ – love your haiku(s), absolutely gorgeous! I can’t leave a comment though – you don’t have Name/URL enabled in your comments! Makes me sad!! Someone please pass this along to her, k? Muchas gracias!

  14. I love Knarf’s haiku. Especially relevant today as we woke up one hour later than normal, and 7 minutes before the bus was to come. Obviously missed that one! Had to drive them to school which made me running late . . . if only I could have just pulled those covers back over my head!

  15. And finally, Jenn, yours is beautiful. It reminds me of the scripture that asks, “can you add one more day to your life by worrying?” So, I don’t worry about the future, I just try to live fully in the moment I’m in. I don’t always get that right, but I try. Welcome back and congrats on 200~!

    • Jenn says:

      Thanks so much :)

      I’ve decided that 2010 is a transformative year for me. I’ve been unhappy with myself for a long time, and I’m not willing to be anymore. My eyes were only the beginning! Um, that doesn’t mean I’m going under the knife or anything – I just have plans to change things up and make life that much better. Thanks for taking the journey with me! ;)

    Offering a little something, a little toward the end of day, but still on Wednesday!

    Protected in here.
    Safe from horrid elements.
    Soon, free as a bird!

    Congrats on the 200 posts, Jenn!

    Happy 200th Post. Nice Haiku – does seem that I would need to use my fingers to figure one out!

  20. Hi Jenn, Much thanks for reminding about Mr Linky. There is one thing I do not understand. You say to use the code in your post. How does this work. I tried adding it to the top of my poem but it came out look strange. Maybe I am not using it in the right place.

    warmth stirs earths new skin
    rich black soil will soon ripple
    seeds turn in their dreams.

    Join the fun!

    I keep missing the Mr Linky.
