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: Search

    Searching for meaning
    Certainly more than one truth
    Ideas abound

Searching for truth now
Brush away the greed and guile
Focus; family

    Searching for future
    The past cannot be undone
    Learn from it. Move on

Search for your true self
Beneath the layers of doubt
Rise and shine again

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Family

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.

    Well… that was WEIRD! It was there when I wrote the post! Re-added, and will get yours added too, folks. Geez.

  6. Teresa says:

    These are great! It really is hard sometimes not to lose our selves in all that is going on around us.

  7. JazzBumpa says:

    Three word Wednesday was also missing its Linkey gadget earlier today. I see it’s up now. Must have been a glitch at the Linky end.

    Look in common spots
    Search where you were recently
    Check your purse. Bingo
