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!)

Hey Haiku-ers! Did you read my announcement?

This week’s theme is: Resolve

    Resolve for better
    Happy as bird with french fry
    Let this new year ring

Hit the gym? Cliche!
Can’t make me. Ok… Maybe.
Sloth overrated

    Bring on the sunshine!
    Happiness; a beam away
    Pointless moping? Pass!

Raise your glasses high
To you all I wish the best
Happy New Year, Friends!


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: Brilliance (3 syllables)

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!)

  5. But I don’t wanna leave a comment.


    As for the changes, ok, I was getting lazy and just linking to the blog itself. I did the rest of it though! I’ll link better.

  6. Jenn says:

    MMT tells me that “Brilliance” is 2 syllables in the states, so we’ll make it either/or for next week!

    I love “happy as bird with french fry!”

    I’m going to try to make a weekly effort over here… no telling if I actually will get it done. Thanks for hosting, Jenn!

  9. And a Happy New Year to you.

  10. I am reluctantly with you on the gym – it does, however, help me get more reading done! :D

  11. Ria says:

    I’m back!!

    I think I did the link right.

    Here’s hoping we all resolve
    to follow your rules.

  13. Kathy says:

    Happy New Year as well….I think I’ve been posting weekly for a month now?? Hope I don’t make any more mistakes!

  14. I have tried to write in this weeks Sensational Haiku Wednesday a haiku in the classical way with 5-7-5 syllables. I hope I succeeded.

    Thank you for the new Sensational Haiku Wednesday.

      I still can’t leave you a comment on your blog – I wish I could!

      Thank you for trying to do 5-7-5, Chèvrefeuille! I wonder if the language barrier is an issue – you write English well, but the syllables may not be exactly what you think they are?

      I appreciate that you tried, though, especially as English is not your first language, and I enjoyed your haiku.
