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: Addiction

    Haiku addiction
    Not a difficult problem
    Just use your fingers!

Do you know the date
That we have one hundred weeks?
May 25th… Wooot!!

    Our constant laughter
    So much a part of my life
    Miss you, Addiction :)

Is it always bad?
Addiction can be happy
For the lucky few

Folks, a quick note about comments: I do visit everyone (usually a day or so after due to my schedule), 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: Spontaneity (don’t you love it when I give you a 5 syllable word??)

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

    Hey Jenn, I saw the Hooked on Haiku list, my name is repeated twice :) once as Leo and once as Vinay (Leo). You can remove the latter, I’m back to my pen name itself. Cheers!

    • Jenn says:

      Well you have the 2 blogs, so I’m ok leaving you in there as both :) You’re not the only one, actually!

      • Leo says:

        Oh ok! No probs! :)

        I thought SHW ended on Thursday night sometime, so I included addicted to the new haiku/senryu I tried today.

        Since linky is closed, I thought I’d share the link anyways :)

        Unhealed Haiku/Senryu

          I had more time to myself this week – the only reason I’ve been closing it really late the last while is because I’ve been too busy to get to it. Plus I know it makes one Haiku-er really happy to be able to post last minute stuff ;) I could set it to close automagically at a specific time, but I like to do it when I’m fairly certain we’re all on board :)

    Chocolate oh yuck
    Chocolate I’m hating you
    Chocolate get lost.

    First thing at day break
    Last thing before bed at night
    ‘Pute on all day long.

  7. Sorry, I posted mine for Spontaneity a week early. But as you can see, some things can’t wait, LOL!

    Will be back if I can think of an Addition poem. Like I can’t write on that topic… anyway… Amy

  8. OK, amended post to include an addiction poem. Man, what a morning!

  9. Donna says:

    So true. Addiction sometimes has a negative connotation for the most part, and your writing brings to light the positive aspects in a humorous, loving way. Getting addicted to hobbies is a fantastic way to stay sane. Everything in moderation, easier said then done.

    Another great post. Another great week ahead to you!

  10. Haiku hankering
    mixed with lim’rick addiction —
    housework haitus.

    My latest latest Limerick-Off challenge is here.

  11. Sorry about the spelling — that should be “hiatus” – just like “haiku,” except reversed. :)
