Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”
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: Fathers
My submission for this week:
Father? Any man.
It takes a truly great one
To be known as Dad.
Happy Father’s Day to all the great men in my life, including of course, my own Dad, my husband, J-B, and Knarf. Love you all dearly!
Next Week is our Haiku-versary CHALLENGE!
The Challenge will be to bring in the most new Haiku-ers (“new” meaning never participated here before, and ideally people who will join us and stick around!). Please have your new Haiku-er identify themselves as coming from you in the comments, and use the proper graphic and link (below) on their blog. The winner* of our challenge will get a $25 gift card to your choice of Starbucks, Tim Hortons, or iTunes!
Good luck, Haiku-ers!
* standard legal mumbo-jumbo… void where prohibited by law (we’ll figure something else out in this event), new haiku-ers must have a “real” blog, in existence for at least 6 weeks prior to this challenge, be new to this meme, yadda yadda yadda. Common sense stuff.
Next week’s theme: Haiku Challenge! [and the theme word is Challenge, also]
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):
