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: Living

    You! Carpe Diem!
    Wasting time feeling sorry
    Life is for living

What is happiness?
Best friends, conversation, hugs
Happiness is this

    Melatonin… yesszzzz
    Seratonin… enjoy life!
    Released endorphins

Why are you waiting?
Your life is happening NOW
Get up! Enjoy it!

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. 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: Freestyle (whatever you want to write about)

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 (if you’re not listed and should be, please let me know!)

To participate in this week’s event, please use the following code in your post on your own blog (if you don’t have a blog, post your Haiku as a comment):

    Interesting train of thought, Jenn. I haven’t done mine yet. :O)

  2. Madeleine says:

    I’ve re-read them now my brain is more awake. I like the subtly of your haiku, yet they say so much when you peel away the layers :O)

    Hi Jenn, like your offereings this week. I can’t seem to get online midweek, and tonight when I did I posted without checking the theme first – whoops! I hope to participate again soon :)

  4. Hey, Jenn

    I took a similar approach to my haiku this week; although like usual, I didn’t get too serious (although the message is serious).

  5. I at last posted on time. Wrote two to make up for all the posts I’ve missed.The # 2 Haiku is an experimental Haiku.


  6. a great prompt and your haiku are lovely!

    I’m not sure I agree with the melatonin – I say there’s time to sleep when I’m dead

  8. Broot says:

    One cannot live well
    without a weekly haiku
    so here, I wrote one.

    too much work and no
    play can make Broot a boring
    person so I’m here.


  9. Yes, I agree, life is happening now…but most of the time it’s going by in such a blur that I can’t even see it!

    Hi Jenn
    Liked your poem. Couldn’t find the linky thing so here’s mine.

    The past is finished
    tomorrow is the future
    so live for today.
