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: Generosity

My submission for this week:

There for me, always
Selfless, generous, true blue
Ever in my heart.

And because I totally forgot what day it was going to be when I chose the theme for the week…

Green, yet full of fire
A spirited lust for life
Well… I AM Irish…

Next week’s theme: Dreams

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

    After such a delightful night, I quickly throw these two together. They’re pretty philosophical I guess, and more of a couple of tenets that I believe in. I just wish I could have said them a little better…

    Always give till it feels good.
    It’s better that way.

    Noble acts performed,
    Under a generous heart.
    Are so chivalrous.

    An ode to Jenn, Knarf, and J-B…..I love you guys :)

    How lucky am I?
    Three generous souls they are…
    Warm my heart, always.

    A love haiku and an Irish haiku — never before have the two united. LOL!

    Green would have been a lovely theme this week.

    Top o’ the mornin’ to ye!

    I forgot about today, too, but I’m not Irish. So I have an excuse. :o)

    Here is a quick little ditty:

    Impish Irish elves
    Hiding their big pots o’ gold.
    Search for your rainbow.

    Defining group moment, last night. Heartfelt thanks, Jenn. :)

    Some musings from the JB this week:

    Nothing’s more precious:
    Generous gift of friendship.
    I feel loved and blessed.

    Sharing, caring too.
    My gifts benefit others.
    Generosity . . . . .

    Generous Johnny;
    Little Irish leprechaun.
    “Drinks on me tonight!”

    Knowing my purpose:
    Live my life serving others.
    It is who I am.

  9. I didn’t actually “write” this haiku –but I still like it! Peace and prosperity to you and yours, this fine, fine day!

    “Selfishness is a virtue.”
    I won’t give them that!


    Giving from the heart
    To someone whose need is great
    Is an act of love.

    On St. Patrick’s Day

    They came in hunger,
    Leaving behind their green home
    For new life and hope.
