Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”
Haiku is simple! It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively (a great way to use your fingers!)
Please folks; while there are many different ways to write this form of poetry, to avoid confusion, for this meme we are ONLY using the 5-7-5 rule for our haiku. Thanks!
This week’s theme is: Preparation
Even best laid plans
Often take a sudden turn
Be prepared for all
Snowflakes and moonbeams
Velvet darkness envelopes
Always the same date
Shouldn’t be such a surprise
Why aren’t you ready??
Bah, Humbug? Perhaps.
The same thing year after year
Haiku Folks: Sorry for the delayed start today – had some technical issues I couldn’t address until this morning!
Folks, a quick note about comments: A few of you don’t have Name/URL enabled on your blogs, and I CAN’T comment in that case. 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: Spirit
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 [politely] let me know!)
