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: Fierce

    Fierce of spirit stand
    Basic human rights at stake
    Costly religion

Who’s to say what’s right?
What makes your way of life wrong
When it hurts no one

    Acceptance is key
    Individuals have rights
    Despite ignorance

Let go of anger
Fiercely protect human rights
Learn to see clearly

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Freestyle (any)

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. Letting go of anger is perhaps the hardest–and noblest–human task.

    words of wisdom and fierce determination is necessary to accomplish goals

    Thanks for faithfully hosting!!

  3. joanne says:

    a couple of AA slogans fit perfectly …. ‘Let go and let God’ and ‘Acceptance is the key’. …now if only we all can do it

  4. Hazel says:

    Sometimes those who have the ‘knowledge’ take advantage of those who do not. Would be good to have rights and not be ignorant about them.

  5. Some thoughtful ideas and encouraging advice in your haiku this week!
