Silly Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Silly Haiku Wednesday!”

Click here for info and background on this weekly event!

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!)

This week’s theme is: Friends

My silly submission for this week:

Some friends keep me sane
Some push me to strive harder
Some drive me to drink!


Next week’s theme: Separation (your choice of context)

Note: 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

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):

  1. Your submission is brilliant – encompasses the many nuances of friendship in 17 syllables :D

    I’m here, I’m here! And I wholeheartedly agree with your haiku. Taking a slightly “different” approach to friends with mine…

    Yeah, I still can’t make a haiku happen, but I will say that although I may drive you to drink, at least I’ll stay and partake with you :)

      Of that I never have a single doubt, my friend. Although in 90 minutes we’ll be knocking back Tim Horton’s Iced Caps, and not alcohol, right?! Unless Doodle Cakes slips something into them that is… never know about her.

      You are creative – I’m sure you could manage a haiku if you really wanted to. Big meanie.

  6. Yay I’m here, I have internet access, I’m the Singapore one on feejit, how spooky it knows what I’m up to! Thanks for linking me in, wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get online but don’t need to panic anymore ;) So lost without the internet, what did we do before we had it?!

  7. PS It’s 10:30pm here so although I feel like I almost missed Wednesday, it’s still Wednesday morning for a lot of you guys so I actually had plenty of time!

    • Jenn says:

      I had you linked as requested before it even went live last night – do you really feel special now?! Hope so ;)

      Singapore, eh? You poor thing, having to travel to so many wondrous, foreign places. What a “chore” :P

  8. Doodle Cakes says:

    Alas…No alcohol in the Icecaps…but next week’s cuppies might have a little extra.. ;)

    Friends keep me grounded
    What would I do without them
    They supply the Tim’s!


  9. Ahh, the same can be said for family members too!! ;-)
