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: Antique

      Truth in the numbers
      Days filled with stiff, aching joints
      But am I antique?

      Rubbed mahogany
      Hand carved legs gleam in the light
      Such rich history

      Days spent wandering
      In search of the perfect piece
      A polished presence


Next week’s theme: Crabby! Courtesy of Nessa (and J-B and Thom!!)

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

    Polished mahogany legs … I thought for a moment that you were writing about a beach in Hawaii …

    As for next week’s word, are you sure Thom was making a suggestion and not describing his personality? Hmm? (That fight is on over at our places and it will last for the next 12 Days. If you missed out 12 Days of Christmas last year, you will not want to miss it this year!)

      It was suggested with HIM (and J-B) in mind, actually, not submitted by them ;)

      I’ll be by tomorrow (ok, later today) to check it out – just catching up with email and the like after a lovely shopping trip to PA with my hubby.

    Lovely prompt word suggested by Qullly!! I love the state, and/or quality of being antiquated and jaded; also antiquities from the ancient past!! It has its own old-age charm!!

  3. Madeleine says:

    Great take on th theme. Well if you are antique then you are priceless!
    I’ve gone for an odd mix. I wonder what that says about me LOL!

  4. Michelle says:

    Ah yes…but as quilly says…we’re just old (unfortunately)…but I, too, view some in my life as antique! Great haiku. Have a great day.

  5. “Antique” is mostly a state of mind, I think, although the body DOES have some say in the matter!

  6. Hi Jen

    Madeleine reminded me that it is Haiku day today!

    I have tried a couple :)

  8. Amanda Moore says:

    Jenn if our Mahogany was rubbed would our joints still ache? Just askin’!

  9. RiA says:

    I ALMOST FORGOT it was Wednesday – work has me all weirded out! I will come back to read everyone’s poems tomorrow! Promise.

  10. Cathy S. says:

    Why is antique good
    For cars and furniture, but
    for us, not so much?

  11. Nanka says:

    The lovely thoughts in your mind are as priceless as antiques!!

    Loved the Haiku’s and the mahogany one is beautiful, just like the mighty tree which when crafted and polished goes richer and deeper.

    These are perfectly polished pieces here!!

    Have a great day!!

  12. Late again but wrote one anyway.

    Ancient Of Days

    the antique building
    stood alone amidst moonlight
    ancient of days calls

    I’m more of a limerick writer at my humor blog, but I had to give this haiku prompt a try:
    Morning legs dangle
    Off the bed, as antique joints
    Brace for contact.
