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: Paradox (Definition)

    Life and happenstance
    Harbinger of happy change
    Fear of the unknown

Twinkle, laughter, love
Withheld and kept at arm’s length
Paradox: Blue eyes

    Excitement in change
    Certainty in knowing course
    Fearful of changing

Warmth. Inclusion. Love
Paradigm and Paradox
Cold separation

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: Growth

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
