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: Numbers

    Fine expensive wine
    Silver, laugh lines, a twinkle
    Age is relative

J-B; Silver Fox
Well loved, well lived, wonderful
Earned every great thing

    Celebrating you
    Don’t fight me, know I will win
    You ARE a smart man!

Happy Birthday, love
Numbers mean nothing you know
You’re still young at heart

Happy Birthday to J-B (Actually it’s September 13, but before our next haiku)!

He hates acknowledging his birthday every year, and yet I feel the need to celebrate him. He has learned to live with it, I think. It’s not like I give him a choice, really, although I met him half-way and didn’t throw him a party… this time. The men in my life have come to realize that I generally get what I want :) Besides, when you find a friend as great as he is, it’s pretty much impossible to ignore important moments in their lives, and I can’t bring myself to do it. Lest he get a swelled head, however, he is truly one of the most stubborn men I’ve ever met, too. Nonetheless, J-B is one of a kind, and I adore him. That’s all there is to it, really.

Happy 60th Birthday, J-B!

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: Freestyle (anything)

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!)

  6. I just happened to have written a ‘number’ haiku the other day on my Haiku blog.

  7. Don’t let 60 frighten you, J-B. It’s a nice round number! :-)

  8. Rekha says:

    Age is all in the heart and mind…the body cringes sometimes, its true…and then everything is just fine.

  9. Nanka says:

    Of course numbers are nothing, being young at heart is what counts!! I love it Jenn!! Cheers to that and celebrations!!

    So glad you’re shouting out a Happy Birthday anyway!

    Happy Birthday J-B!!

  12. I enjoyed your haiku. Here’s mine, which I haven’t gotten a chance to post yet:

    Math puzzles and games
    anchor a hollowed-out life —
    safety in numbers.

  13. Laurie says:

    I’m celebrating a milestone (for my mom) 5 months early.
    I finally did one that is more than the three lines. Hooray for me! Jen, can I be on your Hooked on Haiku list please? Have a wonderful week. ‘See’ you next week.

  14. Numbers…celebrate the years, the bigger the number, the bigger the celebration.

  15. It’s all about numbers..loved doing this one
