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: Fantasy

    Nothing can hurt us
    We’re strong, together, ok…
    Ah, such fantasy

      What you mean to me
      Mere words can only touch on
      Beloved. Heart strong.

    Horrid silent world
    Without laughter, embraces
    Meaningless. Empty

      This too shall pass by
      Hope returns, refreshed, healthy
      not this… fantasy

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: Hope

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

  2. Madeleine says:

    OOh your haiku sound very profound today :O)

  3. Nanka says:

    Horrid world is a reality and always full of fun and laughter is a fantasy.
    Only a strong heart and an united front is the hope which can ease the difficulties in life.
    Your Haiku’s are very strong and thought provoking.
    I’m sure all can easily relate to it!! Wonderful!!

  4. Margo Benson says:

    Wow, these are so powerful, beautiful and very deep. ‘Hope returns’ is a lovely link towards next week’s theme.

  5. Interesting haikus today, lots of hidden meanings! I’m so excited about your new house, are you going to be visiting it to take photos while construction is taking place – we did that it was so exciting (kind of sad too though!).

    Hopefully see you soon,

    If a dream is a
    Wish your heart makes, what, pray tell,
    Is a fantasy?


  8. jazzbumpa says:

    Ooops – that last note linked to my mean-spirited stern and serious blog.

    It should have gone here – my fantasy land.


  9. jazzbumpa says:

    Never mind. I’ve disabled the RSS feed.

    Here’s the link.

    JzB who is not quite with it today.

  10. Snuck in by the skin of my teeth this week – has been a bit hectic.

  11. Donna says:

    The emotions ebb and flow like the tide, sometimes overwhelming and crashing down, other times beautiful creations of surf and waves. Your haiku has a certain element which is very dialectical – feeling two different, even opposing emotions, same time.

    Here’s to hope and next week!

  12. RiA says:

    Late again… sigh. Your haiku is very deep. Slightly disturbing but I don;t know exactly why,

    I went light… as snow and ice! My fantasy vacation spot for your pleasure.

  13. Sometimes (oh, probably most of the time!) our fantasies are hard to face head-on. That’s one of my take-aways from what you wrote, Jenn.

  14. Rosie says:

    I’ve just discovered your meme, Jenn. Just had to enter my link. Your haiku is inspiring. Mine has a lot of photographs as my recent visit to the Alugu caves inspired my haiku.

    • Jenn says:

      Very powerful haiku – welcome aboard, Rosie! So happy to have you with us!

      Can’t leave you a comment though… :(

  15. trisha says:

  16. quilly says:

    My fantasy seems to be health. I slept through most of Wednesday. Today isn’t looking any more energetic.

    • Jenn says:

      Poor Q… *hugs* my sniffly, coughing friend. Only virtual though – I don’t want your cold!!!!

  17. “Nothing can hurt us.” I’d like your fantasy to become reality.

  18. I’m glad to see the Linky is still open. I’m considering posting Saturday morning, so I hope I’m not disappointed then! (Thanks, Jenn!)

  19. How sweet you are! Because I can’t sleep, I’m working on my latest piece at some unearthly hour Saturday morning. It’ll be up soon. Thank you, Jenn!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Rosie says:
