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: Future

      Errant dreams… far fetched
      May come true, tho’ likely not
      Keep moving forward

Next week’s theme: Secrets

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 hope this poem is not depressing. It’s not meant to be. It’s meant to show that life happens …that circumstances occur that will severely change our dreams or future. In essence, that a momentous event, or events, will upset the outcome of the ‘plans’ that got us to a specific point in our life’s journey… But also the poem is meant to show that life does go on …definitely in a different ‘planning’ direction …but still goes on. It’s what you make of it from that point on that will now count…

    (Edit by Jenn: go to Brain Fart to read it!)

    God bless and keep safe and well…especially to my dear friends Jenn, ShaMoo and J-B….

  2. ShaMoo says:

    Wow, Knarf….you brought tears to my eyes with the intro, nevermind the haiku. These are incredible…. Big hugs :)

  3. ShaMoo says:

    So true my friend. This is a winner!! As for your theme bleak? Nope. Think Gotham City. My bad this week. LOL. :)

  5. Weezer says:

    I”m in. I know mine are too long, but I get on a roll and can’t stop. I liked this one.

  6. Nessa says:

    You and I were thinking along the same lines but I was a tad more shamelessly boastful.

  7. Michelle says:

    Wasn’t sure where I wanted to go, but came up with something! And how many far-fetched dreams have I had in my life….too many to count!

    Thanks for hosting this meme. I just found you through Nessa. I love haiku and so glad to find some folks who share my insanity!

  13. i love this week’s theme! maybe because i can relate to it as i have so many fears regarding the future. so i tried to talk myself out of those fears.

    you succinctly wrote it the way i wanted to express it. perfect!!! =)

  18. quilly says:

    I wrote about dreams that can’t come true if I am too fearful to pursue them. We both need some confidence!
