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: Sensational

    Amazing, awesome
    Fabulous, superlative

Tar sands debate… war?
Stand on the side of our Earth!

    Nearing that milestone
    One hundred ninety four weeks
    Sensational Us!

One two three four five
Fingers count out syllables
Five, Seven, and five!

Yes, I know… “lamest fourth haiku ever”. Hey, we’re getting close to our 200th (unbroken!) week of haiku! What should we do to celebrate? Leave me a comment with your ideas!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Continuity

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)!

    No, it’s not lame. At least to me. I relate with the second line of the fourth. I just try to make sure nobody’s watching :)

  2. Please be kind–I really did try to make sure it was 5-7-5 and I think it is!
