Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Sensational 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!)

As of February 3, 2010, Silly Haiku Wednesday became “Sensational Haiku Wednesday”. Please adjust bookmarks and blog posts accordingly!

This week’s theme is: Vision

My submission for this week:

Blurred, devoid of shape
Lost; a world of haze and hue
Suddenly made clear

Next week’s theme: Chrysalis

(written last week!) Please excuse me for not visiting you this one time for SHW (I’ll catch up, I promise)! On Monday I underwent PRK Custom Wavefront laser surgery on my eyes. If all went as expected, I’ll be offline for about a week, recovering. And then, for me, life begins anew… “See” you soon!

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

    I think I’ve gone back to ‘Silly’ and not ‘Sensational’. Sorry! But I was having fun with some.

    Vision by Knarf

    My specs fogged up.
    Falling snow dampen the lens.
    “Where the hell am I?”

    “I see” is to know?
    Might not always be so though.
    Refocus of thought?

    Your Vision impaired?
    Did you have too much to drink?
    Dang! The wrong glasses.

    To see is to know.
    To know is be made aware.
    And yet I still trip.

    The vanishing point,
    An illusionary trick.
    Then came Picasso

    You look fabulous!
    A vision of pure splendour!
    But then I woke up.

  3. Hope you are seeing clearer now!

    I had Lasix 6 years ago. So glad to see without my glasses. Unfortunately my vision has changed again so I’m not 20/20 but at least I can function without glasses. Before surgery, I was blind as a bat without.

    I hope your vision is sharp and as clear as your anticipation was!

  5. PRK was the BEST thing I ever did. Of course, it hurt like hell, but it was so worth it to be able to see the clock in the mornings!

    Sometimes vision is
    more about seeing with the heart
    than using your eyes

    Hope you’re feeling better today, Jenn!! We’ve all been thinking of you…. Here’s my “over-sugared” offering for today (big dessert pot-luck at practice last night….yikers):

    What is it I see?
    Something that’s not really there??
    Is it just a dream?

  11. J-B says:

    I like it! Well done!

    We miss seeing you; soon, we hope!

    Here’s a few from the J-B this week:

    One of the senses.
    Seeing is believing now.
    Believe; you are loved!

    Hindsight or foresight?
    Coming? Going? In neutral?
    Vision the future.

    I see where I’ve been.
    Vision enlightens what’s next.
    It’s all clearer now.

    Eye surgery works.
    “Eye can see clearly now . . .”; Hmmmmmmm . . .
    Vision me anew!

    ‘Til next week, friends.

    sounds like a great place to be. Cleared vision after it being so blurred. Great Haiku and thanks for hosting another awesome week of Haikus.

  13. ShaMoo says:

    Speaking of vision, I just came from a quick visit with Jenn. She’s on the mend, but is still sore and wiped out. She’s going stir crazy not being able to get on email or the blog but will be back soon! Cheers, everyone :)

  14. Nessa says:

    I hope all went as you wanted. Can’t wait to hear.

    And that’s my word for next week.

  15. At first glance I did not see the MR. Linky. Then I thought I added my name. Anyway, here is my poem

    left me destitute
    left all alone to bare
    left me in tears and pain
    left now that my love has wain
