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: Bridge

    On a bridge of light
    Narrow but strong of vision
    Stay. Do not waver

Turbulent waters
Often a good friend’s smile helps
Like a bridge of strength

    Generation gap
    Bridge the void and grow past it
    Get over yourself

Close as close can be
Formal tones overshadow
Still a bridge too far

Happy 8th birthday to my Wee One! Not so”wee” anymore…

Haiku-ers – if you should be on the Hooked on Haiku List and you’re not, please leave me a message below! With the move and chaos, I’ve fallen behind not only on visiting you all (sorry…sorry) but keeping up with the list. Just let me know – I’ll get you up there ASAP.

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Pressure

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)!

    I like reading your posts, as you are sharing and dealing with personal things, and thanx for sharing – you have a great sense of humor….I think I heard an early teen in #3!

  5. Teresa says:

    I love the second one! Truly a friend’s smile is a wonderful “bridge of strength.”

  6. lessandra says:

    Happy Birthday to your little one! I like your generation gap – wish my husband could – but I guess he prefers living on his own island – with no bridge :)

    BTW, I’m not on your Hooked on Haiku list and have been playing faithfully for at least several months now. Wouldn’t mind being on the list. Thanks.
