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: Spontaneity

    No time to think; just react
    Spur into action

Live… regret later
Not the best course of action
A plan can be good!

    Don’t plan everything
    Some things just need to play out
    Let it go and live!

A waste of your time
But does it make you happy?

Next week is our 100th Haiku Wednesday! Sensational!! Please be sure to come back to participate, and bring your friends! What a great milestone in our haiku community – see you then!

Next week’s theme: Anniversary

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

    Let go and live! Yes that is what I need to do :O)

  2. Beginning and ending a string of haiku–or a life–with spontaneity isn’t a bad idea! :-)

  3. This is a little note directed toward Comment Luv, which, for some reason known only unto itself, did not–and stubbornly refuses to–show my latest post titled “Spontaneity.” Shame on you, Comment Luv!!!!

  5. Leo says:

    Hey Jenn, 100 weeks is awesome :) Congratulations..!

  6. Well these are almost my first Haiku … I laugh for I am not so sure that spontaneity serves me well. Ah, now to read.

    I will have to try a bit later! Super rushed day today! :)

    Love the language, it moves quickly across the page. “Spur” such a great word choice, relatable to my bones, as well. Pointing out the positives and negatives of planning, a great balancing act. All my best. Can’t wait for next week!

    What a great idea – I saw it on “The Infamous” blog so decided to join in! :)

  10. Mary says:

    I loved the way you began and ended this. Nice! Have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  11. I hadn’t meant to return again this week, Jenn, but sometimes haiku just happens! Thanks for the challenge. “Spontaneity” (even though it fills a whole line) wasn’t high on my list of accessible words to use for haiku, but I think I managed fairly well. ;-)

  12. Trisha says:

    i am dead certain that i read your works, posted the link and commented on your works. how could it happen that neither my comment, nor link is here?

    it was showing my link on wednesday. now its not there!

    it sure was not funny.

    any way, here is mine:

    i should have guessed it when you did not paid your visit. :(

      I’ll add it – maybe Mr. Linky was having a problem that day! Wonder how many people are missing in that case???

  13. Hi Jenn, I wrote my first Haiku for you at but I have been so inspired over the past few days that I created a blog devoted only to Haiku. It is entered above.
    My best,
