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: Aging

      Tomorrow arrives
      Taking youth, leaving laugh lines
      Melancholy, me.

P.S. Just found out that today is Thom‘s birthday – the day before mine! Errr… my 4th anniversary of the 39th birthday… oh forget it. He tried hard to hide it, but I found him out thanks to Rosidah – Thanks girlfriend! ;) Happy birthday Thom!!

Next week’s theme: Horizons

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

    Jenn, I hope you’re having a blast on vacation!! Wishing you the best birthday ever tomorrow :) Here’s my haiku for this week:

    More wisdom with age?
    Yes, but still so much to learn.
    Hope to learn much more.

    Age, just a number.
    So true, again and again.
    Just stay young at heart :)

    Knarf: come out, come out wherever you are ;) Have a great week, everyone!!

      Okay …okay I’m out already..ssheeess. I have to say I just love your haiku. I think ‘young at heart’ is the key regardless of the physical restraints that may be imposed on the individual…

      my tip of the hat to a very lovely person…


    • amanda says:

      Very optimistic wish this was my view of aging

    • RiA says:

      You definitely have a positive attitude toward the whole getting old thing… although I wouldn’t mind being old enough to be a “crone” LOL – IT’S actually the almost old that gets me!

    • Jenn says:

      Thanks ShaMoo :) But remember I’m only having anniversaries now! No more birthdays!!! ;) Great haiku – which can also be found on Brain Fart of course!

    Hi Jenn, have a nice ‘working vacation.’ They are better than none. Agree?

    Thank you for taking time for us again this Wednesday even when things are hectic. :)

  3. Hehe thought your spelling was a bit odd this morning, turns out there’s another difference between the continents – aging / ageing.

    I’m a bit late today, working from home yesterday, slow internet and broken email so playing catch up today -I’ll get my haiku up later.

    There’s nothing wrong with a few laugh lines though!

  4. Michelle says:

    very nice! And yeah…melancholy me, too!

  5. Jessica says:

    Cheer up Jenn! We love ya! I didn’t think I would be able to come up with anything for this week, but life is a funny thing! :)

    On the bright side, we have grandchildren. Gong to watch the oldest granddaughter dance at the American Ballet Theater this morning.


  7. I’m just being silly this morning. What else can I do when confronted with the fact that, like everyone else, I’m going downhill? :-)

  8. Knarf says:

    After showing off umpteen layers of dry wall dust last night, my only thought was to get to bed! Anyway here are my thoughts on aging…

    Oh Me! And Oh My!
    Has my get up and go gone?
    Gone with yesteryear?

    I say! I think not!
    Keep active; keep thoughts alive!
    And be young at heart.

    That physical pain;
    Rubbed with ointment will leave,
    – eventually!

    Stay well everyone …enjoy the day …for each day is the ‘present’ …a gift to be enjoyed…

  9. PinkLady says:

    i’m late again =( but better late than never, right? enjoy your break, jenn.

  10. amanda says:

    I am right with you Jenn in the melancholy, I feel ya!

  11. RiA says:

    I almost forgot it was Wednesday

  12. Broot says:

    Where did the years go?
    I swear it was yesterday
    my children were born

    If they are older
    then I am older as well
    oh yikes, the horror!

  13. Jingle says:

    nicely done,

    beautiful theme.

  14. Lovely insight about age, and what a proper theme for Thom’s birthday ;) . Thanks for hosting, Jenn. Have a wonderful week.

  15. Manny says:

    Here’s mine for the week.

    By her grandchildren
    She felt most proud, accomplished.

  16. quilly says:

    I am getting old.
    I totally forgot that
    today is Wednesday!

    Darn! I’d tell you I’ll get it right next week, but since I’ll be in Hawaii, don’t count on it!

  17. Cathy S. says:

    These took a lot of think this week, my brain is aging too!

    When did I become
    This tired old grump? I want
    The cute young thing back!
    Sitting with new friends
    Comfy, visiting. Hope for
    Zillions more visits.
    The older cousins
    At our reunion show me
    Great ways to grow old!
