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: Family

    Time standing still… sigh
    Children believe forever
    Until they grow up

Tree lights glistening
Dangling bright ornaments
Each one has meaning

    A glimpse of spirit
    Hiding amongst the receipts
    Not what it once was

Merry Christmas, Friends
Haiku wouldn’t be the same
Without all of you!

Merry Christmas to you, haiku and bloggy friends, from the bottom of my heart! I may not write too much other than haiku of late, but know that I appreciate every comment left here, and every one of you who shares your haiku with the rest of our little haiku family. It means the world to me, truly. Hoping that your holiday season is spent safely in the company of those you love best!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Visions

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. Oh, that darned linky thingy! S/he is being a Grinch this morning, so here I am:

    Homeless Family

    And a Merry Haiku Christmas to you too!

    ARGH! Something keeps stripping out the linky! That’s the second time, and I made sure when I saved it to publish that it was definitely there. I’m not sure where the problems is, on my end or theirs… Will see what I can find out…
