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!)

100 Weeks of Haiku!

This week’s theme is: Anniversary

    Thank you all for being here
    You have made my day!

How can I explain
My haiku chums give me joy
Especially… you!

    One HUNDRED haiku
    Many creative voices
    Equal one great Meme!

Just one bittersweet…
No longer celebrated
Always in my heart.

Thank you, everyone, for being here to celebrate our 100th week of Haiku! We would never have gotten this far without you! Here’s to hundreds of weeks more of Sensational Haiku! –Cheers!

Next week’s theme: Future

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 (if you’re not listed and should be, please let me know!)

    What a milestone I tell ya. And to be such a little part of it gives me great pleasure as well. Mahalo for always being there week in and week out with this. It’s one of the joys of my week I tell ya. Here’s to the next 100 weeks :) Keep up the good work.

  5. Becca says:

    Thanks for hosting every single week and for encouraging me to participate :)

  6. You have inspired me so much as I come back to writing and to Haiku in particular that I have started a Haiku Blog. I had surgery Wednesday and new that I could not write then so I created 3 Haiku … obviously not knowing of the theme. I hope they will be acceptable.

    Thank you so much for this place, Liz

      I can’t leave a comment on your blog because you don’t have name/url enabled. Yours are fabulous! Thanks for joining us!

      Yes there is just something so… centering about haiku. There’s nothing overdone about it – no excess. I absolutely adore it! I love writing it also – I think I have even come to think in a 5-7-5 pattern.

      • Thank you Jenn. I am not sure what is wrong technologically speaking. I now attempt to write one a day. Hopefully they are now accessible.

  7. Betty says:

    (Hello, my Jenn, have a wonderful day on your anniversary in Te Reo Maori (and in Haiku!))

    I did no haiku
    but ages ago in school
    now I do them here!


  21. Congrats on the 100th week of haiku! Your meme is a pleasant inspiration. I love the themes that most of the time seem to fit perfectly with my moods and situations. Thank you for giving me a time to muse and empathize, Jenn.
