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: Transition

      Reality change
      Brakes hit hard, unsure of route
      Regroup and move on

      Move to a new beat
      Open mind to the future
      Good things are to come

      Stark reality
      Dreams cloud the issues at hand
      Blue eyes in the dark

Folks, a quick note about comments: I do visit everyone, but a few of you don’t have Name/URL enabled on your blogs, and I CAN’T comment in that case (and prefer not to have to email). Take a moment to enable that, will you? There are other ways to combat spam and still allow people with their own domains to leave their homage to your greatness ;)

Next week’s theme: Disclosure

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

    I like the middle lines:

    Brakes hit hard, unsure of route
    Open mind to the future
    Dreams cloud the issues at hand

    OTOH, blue eyes are gray in the dark..

    transitions give us the chance to re-think our steps and our options. maybe they’re signs for us to change course. i love all your haiku pieces for this week’s theme, jenn.

    i enjoyed reading the entries this week. they are all uplifting and positive.

  14. Nimue says:

    Loved the third haiku a lot :)) .. like the sound of “stark reality” …

  15. Some folks transition
    From career to career.
    Others multitask.

  16. Mama Zen says:

    I really like that last one!

  17. Melissa B. says:

    Frankly, I’d love to
    think about “transition,” but
    I think I’m snowed in.
