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!

This week’s theme is: Chapters

    Moving to new digs
    Beginning a new chapter
    Everything is strange

Shiny hardwood floors
His and hers walk in closets?
Chapter holds promise!

    Noise, traffic, neighbours!
    Chapter takes getting used to…
    Wonder if I can

Bare walls take on life
Little by little, it grows
House becoming home

* Still moving in – slowly but surely making this place a home!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Credit

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)!

  1. A new chapter in life is like a stage stepping into the unknown, a stage mixed with fear and hope!

    hope you settle into this next chapter and get comfortable quick!

  3. lessandra says:

    You definitely have some new exciting chapters coming up! Hope they are interesting, full of promise but not too predictable – who wants a dull book of life? :)

    Wonderful haiku about your ‘move’ ~ glad it is progressing well ~ (A Creative Harbor)

  5. Teresa says:

    I do hope this is an exciting chapter for you! I like the sound of the hardwood floors.

  6. I enjoyed your move haiku. Glad it’s going okay!

  7. Savor each chapter, page by page, line by line. Your new home will tell you many stories, if you but listen.
