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: Homecoming

      Travel, see the world!
      But… still something about home.
      It’s where your stuff is.

Next week’s theme: Comfort

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):

    I found this Haiku a bit hard to do. I think it was because ‘Homecoming’ can relate to so many annual celebratory events re-uniting people (Class reunions, annual Fraternity gatherings, etc). In my case I thought more of the festive time and gathering around Thanksgiving or Christmas…

    This was another fun one, Jenn. Mine is sad this week but it was still fun getting it to be as good as I could make it.

    Just in case Mr. Linky stays absent mine is up and running.

  3. Jim says:

    I like this, Jenn. Of course most of us have too much ‘stuff’ at our homes. :)
    Still it is what we like to have, plus there is some more we like but don’t have yet.

      I noticed that I forgot to switch the Mr. Linky code about 15 mins in – its fixed now, and I added you!

    Isn’t it also suppose to be where the heart is? I’ve always wondered where that comes into play cuz my heart is in my body. Oh well. pffft. Your Haiku is so true. It’s nice to visit but even better to get home, regardless if you have stuff there or not. But the most important thing to get back to is your own damn bed LOL. Have a great SHW xoxox

  5. Weezer says:

    I’m all linked up. There was so many directions to go in with this one. I went with what was near and dear to my heart.

  6. Michelle says:

    Ah, yes. Home, sweet home! There IS something about home. :)

  7. J-B says:

    Well, the j-b is back in town and ready to get back on-line with Haiku Wednesday. A little out of practice, so this week’s offering is somewhat shaky. A tad “rusty”, I guess. But not steamy, anyway!!

  8. PinkLady says:

    your haiku says it all for me… all my stuff are there so i’m going back. what a defining moment! i love your haiku, jenn. =)

    well said. familiarity breeds content.

  10. ShaMoo says:

    Alright, I know I’m supposed to somehow use the force and make this appear on the other site but considering that I can’t even figure out how to link my post to the box above?? Well….it’s not gonna happen today. Baby steps, girlfriend ;)

    [edit by Jenn: And yet… somehow it magically appeared on the other site… strange… ;)]

    If I remembered
    every Wednesday as
    I should, I’d enter.

  12. This was a hard prompt–which was why it took me so long to post today!

  13. Broot says:

    Home, O Canada,
    One day I’ll go back to visit
    flights are expensive.

  14. quilly says:

    I made it! Wednesday still has 4 hours in my part of the world!

  15. quilly says:

    Oh, and that “something about home” … it’s also where the job is that makes all that wonderful travel possible.

  16. Cathy S. says:

    Came home to my friend.
    I met her years ago but
    She’s always the same.

    Kate and Anne, Betsy,
    Sharon,and more, waiting on
    The bookshelf for me.

  17. So true haiku, indeed. As pleasant as traveling can get, I always miss home at the end. Have a wonderful week.

    • LOL. I didn’t realize that I was beginning to confuse the syllables in my haikus. Thanks for taking them, Jenn :) . But I’m going to work on it :) . Have a wonderful week.
