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: Growth

    Confusion of thought
    Enlightenment, new reason
    You are not for me

Reaching for the stars
Touch nothing; figurative
Expand horizons

    Look back and see it
    Missing all too obvious
    Appreciate past

Thankful for guidance
Hard won praise, respected man
Look to the future

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: Attention

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

  1. Thanks very much for your role in inspiring some of my Political Haiku and Tanka post. (Normally I post from my other non-political humor blog.)

  2. I forgot to say in my last comment how much I enjoyed your haiku. :) I liked them all, especially the first one. Thanks again!

    It grew on my face
    I tried to cut the thing off
    Now I’ve lost my nose.

    It was yesterday
    my babies were both very small
    Now they’ve grown very big.

    vegetation, gain,
    words found in the thesaurus

    There you go. Three for the price of one. And you get what you paid for them. (cuz they’re horrible!! LOL!)

    I like to try and figure out the meaning behind these as I read them so I can do a quick psychoanalysis – kidding! Very nice….

    I’m baaaack!

    Loved your haiku. I’ve lived the first one, am always striving for the second, spent some time liiving the third one yesterday, and the fourth one is of course about my relationship with Amoeba. ;)

  11. RiA says:

    Your’s are so good! The second one is my favorite.

    lovely set of haiku, jenn… a life-changing enlightenment is a gift from God to open our eyes and see the man (who thinks he is God’s gift to women) for what he really is (or is not). :D

    blessings to you!

  14. Beautiful haiku! Wise words to live by. The last one is my favorite.

  15. Like you, I am “thankful for guidance.” Unfortunately, I don’t seem to be getting much of it these days!

  16. Oops! I forgot to add my name to the linky yesterday – sorry!
