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: Dreams

My submission for this week:

Unexpected? Shocked!
No wonder I don’t sleep well!
Hrmm. Interesting.

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

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

    Wow, my second time being first….I could get used to this ;)
    Here we go:

    Dreams can be tricky.
    A window to what is there?
    Really just a dream?

    Hard to cram my thoughts into the syllable restrictions, BELIEVE me!! Happy haiku-ing, everyone!!

    Your dreams and my dreams have much in common, I think; although our haiku are very different.

      Yep they did, but I fished them out. I think it’s your IP address, which you can’t do anything about – don’t worry about it, I’m watching for stuff like that. :)

  5. Thom says:

    I’m so glad that I very rarely dream. And when I do I just as soon forget them LOL. Well done my friend. I like this one real well :)

  6. Hmm is this really just about dreams or is there something else going on? I dream a lot – I daydream a lot too! I usually remember my dreams, they are pretty vivid and very realistic, sometimes it’s not until late in the afternoon that I realize it didn’t really happen. I also talk in my sleep regularly! I went slightly off topic today – just for a change.

    Hope the eyes are doing well today,

    Dreams keep me awake at night, so I can so relate to your haiku! If you’ve noticed, a lot of my poetry of late has been about my dreams.

    it is so hard to get a decent night’s sleep when you have vivid dreams.

    Hi, Jenn and friends. Dreamt up a few for this week’s offering. Seems my mind was pretty active on this topic. Enjoy! J-B

    Dreams: fact? or fiction?
    Do our minds play tricks on us?
    Is there a purpose?

    Dream or reality:
    Suppose it really matters?
    Live the moment.

    Daydream believer:
    Flights of fancy; mind wanders.
    Hope springs eternal.

    Dream the impossible,
    For one day it could happen.
    Believe: make it real!

    One day I dreamt it:
    Please, might it ever come true?
    Now living my dream.

    • Jenn says:

      1. Yes. On all counts.
      2. Agreed
      3. Ah, that wandering mind…
      4. We’re doing just that
      5. Lucky us, lucky you ;)

      And you were worried you wouldn’t be able to come up with ONE. Five excellent haiku, my friend.

  10. Knarf says:

    Shouldn’t have had that second sleeman’s last night.. Oh well..

    Am I dreaming this?
    ShaMoo is first in once more?
    Trickery I say.

    Can it be a dream?
    Blurry images are so real.
    Ah! Foggy glasses.

  11. Dreams sparked some creativity, I see.

    In reality, I seldom dream… but I love the best dreams that when I go back to sleep fast enough, it will continue… ever have those?

  15. tmc says:

    I rarely dream (or at least I rarely remember what I’ve dreamt). Maybe that’s why I’m so out of sorts when I do remember one. Oh shoot. I forgot where I was going with this…

    ugh. typical. :)

    Happy SHW!
