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: Accident(s)

      Happy accident
      Bumping into you today
      Genuine and True

      Happenstance and luck
      Narratives of our good life
      It’s no accident

      Make your own future
      Accidental good fortune?
      It rarely happens

      You know it, don’t you…
      Hug me close, and hold my heart
      We’re no accident

      Big thanks go out to JazzBumpa, Quilly, phd in yogurtry, Nessa, Tortuga, and Bing for submitting a plethora of great words last week! Next week’s word is courtesy of JazzBumpa!

      Thanks also to Jade, for offering to Tweet out to her friends and get some new blood into our Haiku community!


Next week’s theme: Inhibition(s)

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

  3. Nanka says:

    This weeks prompt ‘Accident’ is unusual but loved the various forms it can take by reading those four wonderful Haiku’s :)

  4. Jim says:

    So, Susan, your work-around for accidental good fortune would be fate? I really wasn’t expecting the last haiku set. :)

  5. Nessa says:

    Those are the best accidents. Lovely haiku.

    I forgot I can twitter, too. I am off.

  6. Madeleine says:

    I love the positive slant to your haikus :O)

  7. PinkLady says:

  8. Amanda says:

    Oh I’ll tweet around too! Jenn your Haiku are very sweet too bad we cannot always feel like this!

  9. Victoria says:

  10. ShaMoo says:

  11. quilly says:

    Accidentally lost.
    The space/time continuum
    erased my Wednesday.

    I was all wrapped up in Tuesday and didn’t realize today was Wednesday until about 40 minutes ago. Mea culpa. Please forgive me?

  12. quilly says:

    I love the happenstance of bumping into old friends. I love the deliberation in keeping a relationship alive (no accident).

    Btw, my last post was NOT Bringing Up Baby. Comment Luv and I are not friends. They never seem to get it right.

  13. Cathy S. says:

    At least twice a year,
    Down I go! Knees and elbows,
    All multicolored.

  14. Great haiku Jenn! I kind of skipped the theme because I couldn’t think of anything positive and cheery so went accidentals over accidents! I love your haiku though, bumping into someone – great idea.
