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: Natural

    Natural woman
    First song that ran through my head
    Ear worm! You’re welcome.

Natural highlights
Surely a phenomenon
Reserved for the young

    Sing Nature’s praises
    Colour and beauty abound
    Gently tilled garden

Goes down on Tuesday…
Worst ISP in country
Thankful for iPhone!

Happy 4th of July to my American friends!

We had a wonderful July 1st celebration on Sunday at our place near Toronto – best fireworks EVER!

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

Next week’s theme: Heat

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)!

    It’s perfectly natural that your ISP went down, you must have sorely needed to use the Internet and it sensed that!

    Natural – 4th of July cookout edition

    no artificial
    ingredients; organic
    all-beef hamburger

    Red White and Blue

    Excitement building
    for the holiday, now feel
    blue. Rhythms of life.
