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!)

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: Spirit

    Let your spirit guide
    When the way is dark and dim
    There is always hope

Vodka, rum, or rye?
Spirits aplenty in here
I’m always prepared!

    Rotund old elf man
    A spirit of hope and joy
    What harm to believe?

Waiting for spirit
Long coming to me this year
Hoping that changes…


Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Festivus, Happy Kwanzaa, and Fa la la la laaaa to you all :)

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: Review

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!)

    Jenn…Your Haikus are always so insightful.
    You Rock!!
    And whoever linked me up…Thanks

  3. I had a couple of ‘spirit’ haiku lying around – the first was Halloween-themed, but the second is more appropriate for current season.

  4. An excellent seasonal selection.

    Hi, I’m new here, but I follow the G-Man, and I’ve written some haiku–they are spirited, though perhaps not about spirit! Oh well. Thanks for hte opportunity.

  7. When the spirit is long in coming, I guess you hit the spirits. Is that how it works? :)

  8. Your haiku always speak to me…great as always..thank you for your continued inspiration
