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: Crabby

      Two very great guys
      Stressed out and crabby some days
      But as always; loved

      Before the first rays
      Caress the green of my eyes
      Let me sleep will you??

      Stress, work, holidays
      Lack of caffeine, short on sleep
      Best tread carefully


Next week’s theme: Harmonics! Courtesy of JazzBumpa

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

    That no caffeine thing might be me. MIGHT be — except of course I am never crabby. (Although Amoeba might tell you differently.)

  2. Madeleine says:

    I loved them all! I was crabby yesterday because all dressed for the cold icy weather I then went into warm supermarket and felt very itchy and hot! :O)

  3. Donna says:

    Hope you are sleeping well and not feeling as crabby. Obviously, I am not (neither one). Can’t get enough caffeine, myself. Understand why we might be a little “touchy”. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thom says:

    Awww….moi crabby and stressed? NEVER LOL These are all great and I love them all. Very well done. Oh and by the way with my sweetness all the time I make Mary Poppins look like the Grinch Who Stole from those little beasts in Whoville. pffft

  5. Jessica says:

    That last one definitely fits me! Wow! It’s been a while since I have participated! You’ll see that I took the literal route this week! ;)

  6. Crabby? Me? Never!
    I’m far too easy going,
    To ever be crabby.


  7. I’ll never make 3 in a row, but when I can get here, I always enjoy it!

  8. Margo Benson says:

    I love all of these….I really resonate with the last one!

  9. Michelle says:

    Nice haiku! caffeine helps me out as well!

  10. *Phew* Nearly missed it! I only remember it was Wednesday when I saw Madeleine’s blog!

    I have added my contributions!

    It’s very hard to write these when you have no personal experience of the subject. ;P

    Loved these, especially the last one.

    I have my crabby moments, but always feel guilty afterwords.

    Grumpy Bumpa – not a pretty sight.

    And NOBODY needs that!


  12. Mad Kane says:

    Fun prompt and nice verse! There’s something fishy about my haiku:

    Crabby customers
    Survey the lobster tanks
    And settle for scrod.

    By the way, if any of you are into writing limericks, my weekly Limerick-Off is going on right now. This week’s first line is A jittery fellow named Fred…

  13. Amanda Moore says:

    all three are wonderful! Why is it when you’re a little kid you need to sleep but don’t want to and when you’re old you want to sleep but no one will let you? Haiku #3 is so me!!!

  14. RiA says:

    I’m in too good a mood today to ponder crabby… but I managed!

  15. Cathy S. says:

    “Crabby Appleton”
    She said, but I wasn’t yet;
    Now, it’s my default.

    This just isn’t right
    I really must find my way
    Back to the real me.

  16. Jenn says:

    Well done, everyone! Yay, we’re getting our numbers back! So happy…

  17. Nimue says:

    The last haiku describes me best :|
    I wish i could sleep a bit more :)

    PS : My entry has a haiku poem – overlapping haikus in fact 5-7-5-7-5

  18. Mama always warned
    Crabby is as crabby does,
    Trust me, she should know.

  19. Melissa B. says:

    I’m sorry I missed
    this, for I’ve been crabby all
    week. End is in sight!
