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!)

This week’s theme is: Ego

My submission for this week:

Thinking you’re all that?
Here’s your reality check;
There’s always better.

Next week’s theme: Reflection

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

To participate in this week’s event, please use the following code in your post on your own blog (if you don’t have a blog, post your Haiku as a comment):

    Oh Boy! Another week has gone by and here I am again. And these Haiku’s aren’t really that inspiring. Is it the word ‘ego’? or am I in a creative dry spell? (Actually was I ever creative…euuu..I just gave myself an ego buster). Well I’ve tried my very best…and I’ll use the excuse that it’s been a busy week (really it has!). I’m so tired! As soon as this is up I’m right in bed…

    Discard the Ego!
    Surrender your inner self.
    Experience bliss!

    Egos are fragile!
    Would better to go my way;
    Than leave heart-broken.

    Confidence builder?
    Egos coupled with knowledge.
    Stand tall and prevail.

    Charismatic Charm!
    Attract fluttering females.
    Foster high school crush.

    Should I be first up?
    It doesn’t help my ego.
    But it is a start.

    There I go again!
    Me trying to beat ShaMoo.
    Is it my ego?

    Well I could be last!
    I’ll wait a minute or three.
    Na! I’ll go for it.

    • ShaMoo says:

      Nicely done, Knarf :) I came in to post one but completely lost my train of thought (I should really learn to write these things down!!!). I’ll pop back in later when inspiration strikes…

    • knarf says:

      took so long to come on…what happened? The 19th didn’t highlight until 12:05am…anyway I’m up and the ones ahead are on the 18th??

    • J-B says:

      Knarf: you’re legitimately the first again this week. What a commitment!!! As for you, ShaMoo, what’s happened? Losing your touch?

    • Jenn says:

      Well done, Knarf – sorry about the SNAFU with timing; it was all me. ♥ <---ok? ;)

  8. J-B says:

    So here’s a few non-steamy “ego-based” haiku for week 47:

    The wind’s in my sails.
    Course charted; direction set.
    In control, I am!

    Confident at times,
    At others, really, I am not.
    Not an act: ego!

    Do you like yourself?
    Others will: it starts with you!
    Start today: be great!

    Lost a little there.
    Damaged ego with some hurt.
    I will be back soon!

    Feels good to be me.
    I like who, and where, I am.
    Years in the making!

    I’m not that special.
    Don’t see me as others do.
    A regular guy . . . . . .

    Thanks for being you.
    You’re so good for my ego.
    Now changed forever!

    See you all next week. Meantime we can “reflect” on what we’re going to write . . . :)

  11. ShaMoo says:

    Okay, the original haiku that I had in mind last night finally came back to me. Brace yourselves, it is UBER dorky….but try as I might today, I haven’t been able to come with anything else…I don’t know how Knarf and J-B continually churn multiple haiku out every week!! I’m in awe ;)

    Ever study Freud?
    Ego, Super-Ego, Id….
    Back to psych class, yes :)

    I warned you….but it was the first thing that came to my mind; tease me if you must :) Have a fantastic day, all!!

  12. JennyMac says:

    Certainly can’t top yours Jenn but here is my go of it:

    Oh beautiful friend
    you’re not worthless just because
    he does not love you

  13. Polly says:

    My ego needs stoked
    I am lost not being home
    I need to be loved!

    I am on hiatus because of a trip home to visit my aging parents. Please accept the above as my weak contribution to this week’s them.

    I hate chicken pox.
    My son is very itchy.
    I hope she doesn’t get it.

    LOL answered you on my blog, Jenn.

  16. Hi! You’re the haiku girl!? Cool! I keep meaning to pop over here. I am really bad at haiku’s. I’ve thought about participating in your meme but the talent to do this style of writing is elusive! You have some great links each week, though.

      I’ve been called worse… recently! ;)

      Jenny it takes no real skill, just the ability to count on your fingers! Hope you give it a try some time soon…

      Thanks for stopping by!

      P.S. I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but… yep. No Name/URL enabled. Give a fellow Jen(n) a break, woman! ;)
