Silly Haiku Wednesday

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: The Road

My submission for this week:

Crossroads or dead end?
So many speed bumps to dodge
Time will tell the tale

Next week’s theme: Freestyle (whatever you want!)

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

    Very cute I am I think of the same mind as you Jenn just read and you’ll see what I mean.

  5. OK I did my eminent eight thing too today so you can have a nosey, I did it in a bit of a rush so hopefully I’ve written reasonably sensible answers!

    Great haiku, I was going to do something along the lines of the road of life but I ran out of time and inspirations! Todays will have to do, I’ll try and come up with something more inspired for next week!

    I don’t know why my correct tag isn’t showing up. This will take you to my haiku if interested:

  8. Michelle says:

    I like your haiku. I tried to think of something a bit deeper, but my head started hurting! I really enjoy yours!

    At road side I sit
    Sniff? Shoe odoriferous?
    Egad! Its dog sh*t

    On the road I rap.
    Blame Jenn and ShaMoo I say,
    For lines end with ‘Crap’.

    Is the grass greener?
    As I look across the road.
    Hey! Chicken beat it!

    Knarf :)

  10. Hi, Jenn — Thanks for not giving up on me! I do love the haiku fest!

    Love it! I just read “The Road” my Cormac McCarthy. Now that was a rather depressing read!

      Hey Teri – thanks for stopping by! Why not join us??

      I would LOVE to leave you a message when I stop by your place (which I do, often) but you don’t have Name/URL enabled still! What’s a gal to do?!

  13. Jenn says:

    By the way, folks, ShaMoo sent me a haiku via email! So there’s only one hold-out from my group, and he’s being a stick-in-the-mud. I will get a haiku from him one day though, come hell or high water.

  14. Jessica says:

    This week was definitely an emotional haiku for me.

    And I hope time has a positive tale to tell for you.

  16. Love this theme, and yours is wonderfully thoughtful.

  17. Jenn says:

    Folks, I stand (ok, sit) before you, humbled. I did, in fact, get a haiku from that last hold-out in my group, John-Boy. It seems that he caves to guilt trips. Who knew?? (I did… I knew he wouldn’t turn me down!)

    Here it is, for your viewing pleasure:

    You are all so smart.
    Words fail me; no good at this.
    One day, I will learn!

    He’s better than he thinks, isn’t he?!

    It takes so little to make me smile. He made me smile. So did ShaMoo, with hers:

    Sorry to miss out
    Was “Lego-ing” with my boy
    Off to eat lunch now

    Ok, neither of them went with the theme, but I can’t complain. And of course, there are Knarf’s, above – he always does the theme.

    I LOVE my group. They love me. All is right with the world.

  18. ShaMoo says:

    Phew….glad we didn’t disappoint. Getting me to do a Haiku is one thing…asking me to add a theme on top?? Oye….too much stress!! Haha!

    • Jenn says:

      You guys always come through for me – in spades. I’m never disappointed.

      …and it’s my sworn function in life to stress you all out. Mission accomplished!
