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: Elation

    Spending time alone
    Summer breeze, scented blossoms
    Close my eyes in bliss

    Learning something new
    The a-ha moment, when it hits
    Shine in the moment

    See you through green eyes
    So very remarkable
    Selling yourself short

Folks, a quick note about comments: I do visit everyone, but a few of you don’t have Name/URL enabled on your blogs, and I CAN’T comment in that case (and prefer not to have to email). Take a moment to enable that, will you? There are other ways to combat spam and still allow people with their own domains to leave their homage to your greatness ;)

Next week’s theme: Fantasy

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):

  1. Thanks very much for your help in inspiring one of the haiku in my Out on a Limb Haiku Quintet.

  2. Nanka says:

    Love those A-ha moments!! And it goes so very well in your haiku!! Beautiful set of 3 haikus but the second one gets my applause!! Bravo!!

      That photo of the geranium is such mediterannean bliss. Great haiku- I do n0t know why I can’t post a comment to your post directly.

  3. trisha says:

    nothing can compete those “a-ha” moments in elation, just like Nanka said- the reason may vary.

    loved all three of them.

  6. Oh the summer one gives me such a nice image – I really hope we have some nice summer this year.

    Have joy-filled day!

  7. Margo Benson says:

    All three are wonderful but the last is perfect bliss indeed! Have a lovely day.

  8. Selling oneself short can certainly dash elation!

  9. Mysti Parker says:

    I have a blog, but an interview is up today, so I’ll just post a haiku here:

    My first book is out,
    Giddy, happy, head held high,
    Scared and nervous too.

  10. RiA says:

    Congrats on your book.

  11. RiA says:

    Time alone in peace is such bliss.

  12. carma says:

    I see you through green eyes too :D Love the new layout…I’m still contemplating going back to blogger – fixing up the site now. Lame, I know, but easily manageable!!

    I’ll get it together one of these days, Jenn! Soon Amoeba will be back on his teaching schedule and I can make a schedule, too!
