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: Waves

      Making waves is fun…
      You never know the outcome
      Until it’s too late.


      Note: I’m sitting in a Starbucks right now drinking an overpriced, fat and sugar laden iced chai tea latte because my ISP is down YET AGAIN and this is the closest place with internet access that doesn’t feel like stalking (remember last week? I hear he’s thinking about getting a guard dog and electric fence to keep me at bay). I can’t stay too long so I apologize if I am tardy visiting your brilliant haiku today. I will get there, I promise.

      By the way, today’s word is brought to you by J-B (it was almost cauliflower – he doesn’t like to be put on the spot) and next week’s word is courtesy of ShaMoo (she says “you’re welcome” to the ladies, who will find that one a breeze!)

Next week’s theme: Shoes!

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

    • Jenn says:

      Once I figured it out it was pretty easy – a few limitations, and trying to schedule it crashed the WP app, but otherwise it was pretty good! Even better that I did it whilst we were singing! I am a multi-tasking MACHINE!

  2. PinkLady says:

    happy haiku-ing to everyone!
