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: Season(s)

My submission for this week:

Leaves flutter. drop. drift.
Air stirs, crisp and fresh. Steps crunch.
Red, gold, orange, green.


Next week’s theme: Hallowe’en

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

    Your haiku is so great and fall-y. I’m glad I was finally unstressed enough to remember to do a meme I love! :)

    Love it my friend. I can just picture this. :) I can remember as a kid walking through the leaves and just kicking them and listening and just having a blast :)

  3. Good morning, love your Haiku Jenn, I also loved kicking up the leaves as a child. I used to walk to school with my mum and do this all the way along the street – Autumn brings back good memories of this.

    I didn’t really manage a ‘silly’ Haiku this week, the seasons reminded me of one of my favourie campfire songs and I stayed a bit serious…
