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: Stress

      Far too many things
      Pulling me hither and yon
      Need time to relax

      Breaking point is near
      Warning signs flashing brightly
      Just have to get through

      Just hold me tightly
      Make it go away for now
      Defending psyche

      My internet has been down for 2 days… believe it or not I’m sitting in J-B’s back yard stealing his WIFI as I write this!!

Next week’s theme: Waves

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

  1. This haiku is so me right now. Far, far too many thing. What a way to get an internet connection. LOL Have a wonderful week.

      Yeah it was pretty funny when he got home, found my vehicle in his driveway, but couldn’t find ME! :) Good thing he has a covered porch too, because it was raining cats and dogs.

  2. quilly says:

    Don’t break! Slow down and take a deep breath. i have learned that even blogging can wait. i have to take care of me.

  3. Thom says:

    Can I give ya a broom while you got all this energy to clean my house? LOL Take some time for yourself my friend. It’s very easy to do. You just do it. I know, easier said than done, but everyone has GOT to do that at some time during the day. You must take care of yourself :)

  4. Nessa says:

    I have found that focusing on one thing at a time reduces stress. Multitasking is very bad.

    • Jenn says:

      Yeah, I have one major contract that needs my undivided attention this week. Now that my net access has been fixed I’ll be spending the rest of the week on that.

  5. PinkLady says:

    “just have to get through…” should be my “national anthem’s” title. you nailed it, jenn.

  6. I stressed just putting this haiku together this morning! LOL!

  7. I have finally found that by giving myself limits each day I reduce my stress! I multi-task at school as much as possible to reduce bringing home work!

    • Jenn says:

      I think I need some better time management, personally. And better goal setting. It’ll work out – always does.

  8. j-b says:

    So, we address the “stress” mess . . . . Although, a little added pressure (like writing Haiku!) can be helpful at times.

    Hope you all handle your life’s burdens this week, and I wish you well! j-b

  9. amanda says:

    I am the opposite of Nessa, I multitask because it gives me the feeling of control but everyone is different! Hope everything calms down for ya Jenn!

    Good, Jen! :)
    I was helping serve lunch at the Salvation Army last Friday. One of the diners said he had had a hard day that day. I talked with him a bit and out of the blue, he aske, “would you give me a hug?”
    Not that I want to word to get out but I am a very good hugger. That is one of my specialties. Hugs do wonders, don’t they? :)

  11. Victoria says:

    Enjoy this process so much, and your haiku. Stress is inserting photo into post and not being able to correct line breaks. Oh well.

  12. Lovely Annie says:

    Underlying stress there is often serious fears…especially with family!

  13. Manny says:

    I’ve been away for a while but now I’m back. Here’s my entry.

    The moon is restless.
    Danger is in the alley.
    Grateful to get home.

  14. ShaMoo says:

    ACK!!! Look how late I am!! Geez Louise…. Well, at least I got my haiku in today, as promised!

  15. Melissa B. says:

    Hey, I wrote my haiku on the wrong day, but I guess I get credit for showing up, correctamundo? And mine is the “anti-stress” poem, btw. :)
