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!
This week’s theme is: Escape
Wall to wall (to wall)
Precarious boxes perch
Waiting to escape
Decade left behind
Memories and Wee One made
A good place to live
A long time coming
Trials and tribulations
Escaping what’s past
A last look around
Future is bold but unclear
Deep breath. Move onward
* I’m not around this week or next (I have things scheduled, not to worry!) We’re moving and building/painting/tearing our hair out, and I most likely won’t be online too much. Wish me luck!
*** Please read the 4 simple guidelines above before you post your link.
₪ Next week’s theme: Chapters ₪
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!)
