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: Weary

    Fighting with myself
    Always doing the right thing
    Drains my energy!

Random naughty thoughts
Where the heck did that come from??
Too weary to fight…

    Out of my dreams please
    No business invading there!
    Holy smokes I’m tired

What are you thinking?
That I’m one step away from…
Nope. Stronger than that!

Folks, a quick note about comments: 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: School

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 [politely] let me know!)

  7. Laurie says:

    Some day I hope to come up with something really good. But it’s fun anyway, when I get to really play. I’m truly corny.
    Couldn’t help that, it just happened :)

  8. I’m glad to have found you, thanks to Amy.

  9. This week’s haiku prompt was weary…I wrote one about my mother who had Alzheimer’s.

    Goodness Jenn, those could have been written about me. I’ve been feeling exactly that lately.
    Life has taken over and blogging has been taking a back seat, for a few days, though I did manage 3 prescheduled posts to appear this week, I’m now trying to frantically catch up, but I’m off out again soon for the rest of the day!

  11. Nanka says:
