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: Noel

      My Children, sleeping
      the snow is softly falling
      Dreams in the distance

      Believe with your heart
      Hear the melody playing
      There’s no time to waste

      Much to celebrate
      Give your dreams the wings to fly
      If you just Believe

      I cheated a bit, and used snippets of the song “Believe“, which is my favourite Christmas song that Main Street sings. Every time we sing it, it makes me happy, as do the loved ones I sing it with.

      I wish all of my readers and with this post especially, my haiku friends, a very Merry Christmas, and all the best for the new year!



Next week’s theme: Frost, compliments of Victoria!

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

    Believing in santa and the nativity story. Great stuff.I think the last one is my most favourite. :O)

    • Jenn says:

      Exactly, believe in whatever Christmas means to you! For me it’s the most meaningful Christmas tune that we do, and the word “Believe” has become a key word for our group for other reasons too. I try to find things that have that word on them when I’m buying gifts for the group throughout the year. Makes me happy.

    I love ‘dreams in the distance’….these are lovely and evocative. Merry Christmas!

    I’ve added a link to another post I did a recently that has links to other bloggers who’ve had a go at a Christmas Haiku.:O)

  4. It’s those distant dreams that I’m striving for! Merry Christmas, Jenn!

    I love the lines “Give your dreams the wings to fly If you just Believe” This is so magical and so appropriate for Christmas. Very well done. Thanks for linking me up and Mele Kalikimaka to you and your family :)

    • Jenn says:

      The link (on the words “Believe”) is from last year’s recording of that track, and while we do it much better now, we haven’t been back to the studio to record in ages! Will have to do that one of these days now that things are calmer for us.

      I was still awake when I saw yours publish (you saw the Facebook post regarding too much caffeine???) so I figured I’d hook you up ;)

      *hugs* Thom – Merry Christmas to you and yours. Talk soon!

  6. Becky says:

    Hey! I just linked up for the first time! I will try to get around to everyone’s post, but if not today, then tomorrow. I’m still trying to get everything ready for tomorrow :)

    More old song lyrics:
    “Swear there ain’t no heaven, and
    Pray there ain’t no ‘ell.”

      Hi Roland, Thanks so much for joining us! I can’t leave a message on your blog either, because you don’t have NAME/URL enabled. (Someone tell him too? Thanks!!)

      Great haiku, and really stirring words for the rest. Brought me to tears. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    Sorry I’ve missed a few weeks. A little bit on overwhelm. We’re leaving for warmer climate on the weekend. Hope to visit everyone sooner or later.
