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: Sojourn

    Sojourn – a tough prompt
    Having faith in all of you
    Know you can do it! ;)

Life; a brief sojourn
Cosmic insignificance
Problems? Perspective!

    Traveling sojourn
    Immerse yourself in cultures
    Expanding your mind

Sojourn of the mind
Pages yellowing with age
The classic novel

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Commit(-ted, -ting, etc.) ₪

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)!

  7. JennyMac says:

    Loved your post about being a dodgy blogger. That is me to a T right now. Great to ‘see’ you again though!

    I currently wish
    for a sojourn to the shore
    waves provide escape

    I love the imagery the word “sojourn” conjures!

  9. shakira says:

    really interesting prompt but I did not come out with much though. I truly enjoyed yours.

  10. joanne says:

    all of the above….love the ‘cosmic insignificance’…..good one to remember when the human race is feeling full of themselves!

  11. Teresa says:

    I just love the second and third! I admit this one was tough, but a challenge is good!

  12. Mama Zen says:

    Great haiku! The second one is my favorite!

  13. tara tyler says:

    that was a tough one, but my camp nano takes me out of this week, possibly next as well…

    as i sojourn through
    the journey of a new book
    pages come alive!
