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!)

This week’s theme is: Decisions

My submission for this week:

A clutter of thoughts
Permeate my consciousness
Which path do I take?

Next week’s theme: Dance

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

    So I’ve these few silly ones together…not too sensational…

    So many colours
    So many to decide on.
    And I’m colour blind!

    To do or not do!
    Decisions to contemplate!
    But why is it me!

    Okay there chicken.
    Either cross the road or stay.
    Ye gads! Should have stayed.

    Go Right or go left!
    I’m so confused I’m frozen.
    I think I’ll go back.

    The tie that I pick.
    Will never be the right one.
    Wear it anyway!

    Let the coin decide!
    Heads will be yea tails be nay.
    Dang! landed on edge.

    You beat ShaMoo, Frankie! I giggled when I saw you show up. First. It took 3 refreshes and there you were ;) You two are so competitive!! Love it. Well done, as always. *hugs*

  3. Knarf says:

    shoot I doubled up by mistake! Can you correct?

  4. ShaMoo says:

    Pfffft…. Well, that’s two weeks in a row. I’m officially taking a stand and not posting anything until the daylight hours ;) Bravo, Knarf!

    Your poem made me giggle. You will see why when you read mine. Faced with the same dilemma, we follow different paths.

    My advice? Always take the Road Less Traveled…

    Haiku for Big Blue

  9. Knarf, this makes me think of the squirrels I see darting across the road. Half-way across they think, ‘bad idea’ and start back, and then forward, and then leap straight in the air. How can a creature so smart about food be so stupid about everything else?

    Well done!

  10. For Jenn’s haiku — definitely the road less traveled. You might get some poison ivy, but you’ll also get some great stories and probably awesome photos.

    A note to Quilly… I love your poem (copied here)…a reflection of my own thinking of things. :) “Where should I begin?
    I have much to accomplish.
    Let’s start with a nap.”

    I am such a procrastinator and love to take naps ’til the feelings go away ;).

    Here’s my feeble offering for this week. Limiting my verbal diarrhea to mere syllables is mean on SO many levels!!

    What shall I do first?
    The list is always so long…
    Can’t focus at all!


    Have a great day everyone!
    P.S. to Jenn: I still can’t figure out this linking thing… me, Obi-Wan!!

  14. Polly says:

    Jenn…I think you just haiku’d my life right now. Choices, decisions, directions.

    Congrats, all, on more quality haiku this week. The bar just keeps getting moved higher. . . . .
    Here’s a couple of meek offerings from the J-B this week:

    In a quandary.
    Decision: what choice to make?
    Always the right one!

    To share? To not share?
    Honesty’s best, so “share” won.
    A great decision!

    Have a great week everyone! ‘Til next . . . .
