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: Tree

    Tall branches stretching
    Reach skyward, scooping light clouds
    Drinking the sunlight

Dancing limbs swaying
Leaves bursting forth from nothing
Living, breathing tree

    Bark and tender buds
    Mighty oak, gentle sapling
    Rejoice in nature

Shades of earthy brown
Intertwined with nature’s breath
Bursting into life

Congratulations, Haiku-ers! We have made it to our 200th week of Sensational Haiku! Quite a milestone, I’d say!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Bramble

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.

    Don’t feel bad about not leaving a comment on my blog. I wish we could enable name/URL without also enabling anonymous. The team and I made a decision against enabling these because of too many problems with trolls and spammers in the past. It’s a first line of defense against the trolls, who are sometimes really vicious although cowardly. Blogger doesn’t allow for enabling name/URL without also enabling anonymous, though.

  3. I hope the recent lack of contributors won’t precipitate your abandoning this meme. I know a lot of other haiku poets are struggling to keep up with two other Poetry Month challenges, and their (and my) time is limited!

    Thanks for “tree”–it’s something I can work with!

      I’ll give it a while – I know all about limited time. Never seems to be enough in a day anymore! Hope you like next week’s. I’m trying :)
