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: New Beginnings

My submission for this week:

Start the year anew
Fill it with goodness. Believe*.
Live, love, laugh… and sing.

*Believe is a song that we did this past Christmas holiday season that means a lot to my quartet. We sang it last night Monday night again, as a way to wrap up a very successful introduction to our new music.

Next week’s theme: The Road

Feel free to continue challenging your own visitors – we’re having far too much fun not to share!



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

    What a great Haiku. Very uplifting. Something we should all do. Now if this Beach Boy could only carry a tune :) Have a great Wednesday :)

    I believe in love, laughter and song — and the author of those joys. Great haiku — not silly at all.

  3. Polly says:

    This is lovely! I’m trying to play catch up since I was out of town last week. My attempts are weak and feeble at best as I work at getting back into the swing of things!

    “From old beginnings,
    crumpled up and trampled now,
    can things start anew?”

  8. Hey there!
    Great Haiku and I agree a great aim for the year is to live, love, laugh and sing more, maybe I should copy you on that one. My resolutions this year are pretty easy to keep, especially the photo one, I love taking pictures and I’m quite excited about learning some new things with my camera.

    Glad to hear you are a bit more cheery today. Sleep is a wonderful thing but so is chocolate, in solid form or as hot chocolate, yum!

    That’s a great one, seems like it should be a daily mantra or something.

    Lovely haiku, Jenn…. You know how much I suck at them, so I’ll pass this time. BUT, perhaps my new year’s resolution can be to actually try a little harder at the haiku?? Hmmmm, we’ll see :)

    • Jenn says:

      You don’t suck at anything you put your mind to, my friend. At least, not in my experience!

      I think you’re just chicken, ShaMoo. Bok… bok… ;)
