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: Comfort

      Strength in a friendship
      Solid hugs, warm smiles, and love
      Makes my world better.

Next week’s theme: FreeStyle!

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):

    Hardly seems right to be first and not have to cyber arm-wrestle Knarf for top spot. Knarf, I hope you`re having an amazing time… and that you come back in one piece!!

    • Jenn says:

      Yeah… I didn’t stay up to move your post where it’s supposed to be, and link you up. So you’re 12th!! You and I need to sit down and learn ya some of this stuff, sister ;)

  2. Weezer says:

    I liked this one. I’m all linked up. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday.

  3. Weezer says:

    Oops. Don’t know how I managed to get my link up there twice. Sorry…senile and all that.

  4. Thom says:

    Cuddled in warm bed
    The kids snuggled beside us
    A cold day’s comfort

  7. Michelle says:

    Yes, indeed…our friends make the world a much better place!

  8. Glad you have great friends around you. Hope your week is going well.

  9. As usual, I took a different approach…

  10. Chanda says:

    Very nice! Nothing better than friends and warm hugs!

  11. No truer words…what would we do or where would we be if it weren’t for the support of our solid friendships? (sorry I’ve been gone so long…I’ll try to be more consistent)

  12. j-b says:

    And you thought that I had forgotten . . . . Ha! I would be so uncomfortable if that had happened!!!

  13. carma says:

    amen to that sista :-)

  14. Lovely haiku! Friends definitely make my life better. Thanks for hosting again. Have a wonderful week, Jenn.

  15. Manny says:

    Oh I’ve missed last week. Well here’s one for “comfort”:

    Couch potato me
    remote, click, remote click, clock
    drink another beer

  16. Cathy S. says:

    January day
    Gray, bleak, and miserable.
    Flu in my dorm room

    Can’t even get up.
    She knocks, comes in with a gift;
    One cold can of Squirt.

    • RiA says:

      My daughter loves Squirt, only it’s hard to get around here. I may have to find some and send it next winter to her dorm~

    • Jenn says:

      I’ve never heard of Squirt (a softdrink, I assume?)

      Well done, Cathy!

    • Jim says:

      That is nice for a person hot with fever from the flu. I am sure she couldn’t have made chicken soup there at the dorm for you like Mom would done at home.
      You poor baby, get well soon! :)
      [As a retired college prof I have to ask you, could you make it to class? Are you doing your homework? If you missed class be sure to get the assignment from your profs or another student in the classes.]
      Next week I will ask you what your major is. :)

    Those are world improving things! (I am way late this week. Blame it on the fact that my day started 4 hours later than usual. My poem explains it all.)

  18. Jim says:

    Hi Cathy ~~ I am liking your strength! This is a nice one.* My haiku has some of those too, I should have thought of strength giving. :)

    • Jenn says:

      Jim my dear… that was mine, not Cathy’s ;)

      • Jim says:

        I thought it sounded familiar. I also thought I had left you a comment but it isn’t here so I guess I read and put commenting off. Sorry about that.
        I clicked her link and it came here!
        Anyway I like your link. And now I remember from last week, Cathy posts her haiku here in your comments.
        I’ll go up above and read it now! :)

  19. PinkLady says:

    sorry i missed this one… i couldn’t find comfort last week when a good friend of mine died. i stayed away from blogging. hopefully i’m in better shape now and would be able to find the motivation and inspiration to go haiku-ing again.

    hey, this doesn’t mean i have gotten over my haiku addiction. i am still so addicted. :D

    Just lovely. But your haiku always are!
