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

    Honesty and love
    Moments of darkness will pass
    Truth remains; solid

Windows to the soul
Trust what you see. Trust your heart
Nothing else matters

    Marriage, children, love
    Rocky roads, but stay the course
    Worth it in the end

Haunting memories
Dreams unfulfilled, and long gone
Open eyes, new day

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: Anticipation

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!)

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):

    Hi Jenn, thanks for dropping by my blog. In answer to your question: Have you heard of a Devon Rex? They are bald cats. I don’t own one though. :O)

    I know I linked to this but it is not here
    Do you ever visit your contributers at all ?
    I missed the next week because of tormentous trauma of lightening putting out the ADSL.
    Failure to leave me a comment on my contribution will lead to me not taking part anymore. Thank you.
