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: Freestyle (anything)

    A distant voyage
    Separation of two hearts
    Hurry back my friend!

Butterfly soft touch
Sunshine warms pale skin and hair
An idea forms

    Time cures almost all
    Yet the heart wants what it wants
    Happiness; a crutch

Torrential rains fall
Green everywhere – spring has sprung!
Now… where’s the sunshine????

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: Fog

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

    • Jenn says:

      Nice catch!!! I knew I forgot something! I’ve changed it now to “Fog” – because I can’t see more than 10 feet from my window right now. Thanks for letting me know!!

  2. Thom says:

    These are all awesome. I especially like the third one. Maybe the sunshine is with Aquarius ya think? :)

  3. Madeleine says:

    Great haiku. I think the last one is my favourite. :O)

    I wait for the post
    Debbie takes a long time
    to send my letter.

    chocolate, oh chocolate
    you make my face all pimply
    you are too yummy.

    School starts on Monday
    Vacation was way too long
    We want to go back.

    fabulous haikus jane. everyone is gorgeous. you are repeating this week’s theme next week, right?

    • Jenn says:

      Hi Trisha – thanks, but I’m Jenn, not Jane :)

      Nope, I made a mistake. It’s corrected now to “Fog” for next week.

  6. Jillien says:

    This poem was beautiful. it is so true how no matter how beautiful things are around us, its hard to find happiness when your heart is aching.

    lovely, my friend.

    • Jenn says:

      I’m not really “aching”, but things are never as great as you want them to be. We just have to keep trying, right?

      Also, J-B left early this morning for a Mediterranean cruise with his wife, so I’m going to miss him! 3 weeks without a J-B haiku! Ah well, we’ll live… and they’ll have a fabulous trip :)

  7. Amanda says:

    wow those tug on the heart strings a bit Girl! Hope all is well up there Jenn!

  8. Donna says:

    What a wonderful journey. Love the trip you take the reader through. And sunshine, your words are it. Smiling and hoping happiness finds its way! Thanks for hosting another Sensational week!

  9. My complete freedom
    to write anything at all
    scares away my muse.

  10. as always, your haiku are amazing!

  11. Mary says:

    Loved your haikus Jenn !

  15. A lovely group of haikus on different topics! I especialy love the soft thoughts in the second haiku!

  16. This isn’t haiku. Instead it’s part prose, part limerick about feeling free to dance as badly as we please. :) Couple On The Move.

  17. Jenn says:
