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: Integrity

    Ethical lifestyle
    Moral character, “high road”
    Understanding me?

      Internal conflict
      Not enough to say. Must show
      Just do the right thing

    Teach your children well
    a code that you can live by
    Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young

      A life worth living
      Lived well, with integrity
      You know who you are

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: Roots


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

    An inspiring set of haiku! They sound like my inner voice, encouraging me to do better within myself, especially if I’m grumpy or judgemental.

    Also love Crosby, Still, Nash and Young!

  9. Hi Jenn,
    Great haikus, tricky subject this week – I struggled to find a photo to match my haikus. Roots next week should be much easier – so many ways to intepret that.

    I’ll send you though the photos later, when I get a spare 5mins.

  10. The only life worth living is one of integrity, no?

    I wasn’t too inspired today. I’ll check on everyone else’s blogs tomorrow- gotta run!
