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: Harmonics

      Slightly off the note
      Fighting it and righting it
      Takes years of practice

      Merely seeing you
      Rings true, blending greatest joy
      Key of happiness

      Hiding true feelings
      Family harmonics shared
      Often takes some work


Next week’s theme: Noel!

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

    Excellent my friend. I’ve been practicing all my life and I just gave up. LOL :) I can clear a room quicker than anything LOL :) I like the second one the best. Nothing better than good old Friendship and Family :)

    Jenn I really liked the Haiku about family harmonics, it rings true for me also (Pun intended!)

  7. Donna says:

    Most notable post. Always an adventure when family gathers, too. Often hear Grandma’s repeated stories and always interested still, in yours too!

  8. I love the variety. The first one is my favourite.

    Enjoyed the prompt and your lovely haiku. Here’s mine:

    Harmonics converge
    In a dissonant parade
    Of the marching bands.

    If you like limericks and limerick prompts, my latest Limerick-Off is here: Prompt first line: “A high-flying fellow in sales…”

    I like being slightly off note!!!

    I’ll check everyone’s… eventually. I need to go to bed early – I’m picking up ANgie for her winter break! Yay!

    A posted haiku
    Surfaces one in my mind
    And the wave rolls on
