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: Belong(-ing)

      It takes just a hand
      And your genuine, warm smile
      To know I belong

      Laughing eyes twinkle
      Warmth of your arms around me
      Contented, sharing

      Together, apart
      Wherever we seem to be
      We are always us

Next week’s theme: Food (you’re welcome, ShaMoo)


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

    Well I’ve done sort of a Blog tied to the Haiku. I’m hoping it meets ShaMoo’s approval for blogs entered…. :)
