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: Fog

    On little cat feet
    Soft white wall creeps in slowly
    Covering the world

Mental clarity
Struggle for a memory
Harder than it seems

    Darkness, a windshield
    Clouded over, heated breath
    Quicken, held, a sigh

Uncorking a fog
A genie in a bottle
There’s no going back

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: Addiction

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. Wonderful variety of foggy atmospheres in each of these haikus! Especially love the image of the “little cat feet”!

  2. I love the ‘little cat feet’ line too such a great way to descibe it. Have a fabulous day – thanks for the birthay wishes.

  3. I wish I could find a genie in a bottle–a genial genie, of course!

  4. Thank you for hosting this. I’m looking forward to reading through everyone’s haiku. I ended up not writing on fog (didn’t see the theme before I wrote), sorry I’m a newbie.

    Love your use of language, especially “Litte cat feet” and “darkness” likened to a “windshield”. Absolutely fabulous, all of them. Lucidity, is a word I used this morning and your picture of mental clarity is right on. Thanks so much for hosting. All my best!

  8. This is the first time I am participating in Sensational Wednesday Haiku. And will try to be regular here :)

  10. I enjoyed your haiku, especially the last one. Here’s mine:

    So many ideas
    begging my brain for some verse,
    fogging my focus.

    Very nice selection, Jenn on the prompt! I want to thank you for hosting this weekly. Appreciate the work, the challenge and the opportunity to visit so many sites.

  12. “Fog” was a good prompt for me, Jenn, but I can’t imagine how I can possibly weave next week’s prompt, “addiction” into a haiku. I guess we’ll see!
