Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”

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!)

Here are the rules:

      Structure: While Haiku may be written by some in other styles, for THIS meme only 5-7-5 is acceptable. At least one of your haiku must be in this format.
      Theme/Prompt: We have a new prompt each week, and your haiku needs to be related to it, if not include the actual word in it. Feel free to leave a word suggestion in a comment!
      Linking: When you post your link, link to the blog post with your haiku, not to the main page of your blog.
      Reciprocate: If you participate and post your link on my website, you must have a link back here on your post. It’s only fair.

    Folks not complying with the above risk having their links removed. Don’t make me be all “Grrrr” and stuff, it makes me grumpy! Thanks for your cooperation!

    P.S. This is a really busy time for me – I may not get around to everyone each week. Sorry about that, but unfortunately I need to attend to business before pleasure!

This week’s theme is: Postcard

    Earth bound wandering
    Spectacular scenery
    Sent home to loved ones

If you won’t stay put
Show that you think about me
Send me a postcard

A traveling life
No time to stop for pictures
Instead… buy postcards!

*** Please read the 4 simple guidelines above before you post your link.

Next week’s theme: Confidence

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 ;)

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!)

To participate in this week’s event, please use the following code in your post on your own blog (if you don’t have a blog, post your Haiku as a comment):

You can also choose to use only a text link, or either of these additional images I made for your use! Use This one (dark), or This one (light)!

    Yesterday I was at the Titanic 100th Anniversary Artifact Exhibition, and saw postcards there. This is a lovely theme, and your take is wonderful like always.

  2. Great words on postcard.

  3. postcards are a great visual glimpse of travelling moments! Those passing colours are beautifully captured in your haiku!

  4. One of your harder prompts, Jenn!

    sometimes when I travel I don’t even bring a camera, because postcards seem to capture scenery best….nice to have a traveling life…..

    What lovely ideas come to mind for this word prompt..hard to choose just one aspect.

  11. Good prompt, nice haiku!

    An ancient postcard
    shows a place I’ll never see,
    which I now call home.

  12. Jennifer says:

    I agree, this was a challenging prompt. I enjoyed taking some time to just concentrate exclusively postcards though!

  13. Karen says:

    Great prompt Jen. Terrific haiku, love the last one!

    I was in despair for a while, but slid in just before midnight.

    I like Madelaine’s surrealism
