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: Credit

    Building a new home
    Many unforeseen issues
    Withholding kudos

Sev’ral sleepless nights
Credited to an old dog
Nervous of moving

    Outdoor turned indoor
    Black cat wonders what happened
    Freedom restricted

Tired. Bone-weary!
Credit to hubby’s hard work
House becoming home

* Will try to visit everyone this week! Have I mentioned how much I hate moving?

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Fresh

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)!

You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed. Both comments and pings are currently closed.


  1. Moving, no matter how organised you may be, is quite a traumatic experience! Those who support and help certainly need some credit! Enjoyed your haiku!

  2. Melissa B. says:

    Hey there! You’re brave to build a new house. We just renovated our screened porch this summer and it was a mammoth undertaking. Happy Wednesday!
