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: Anticipation

    Quivering fingers
    Eyes widen, breath quickens, pause

Fluttering heart strings
Longing to stretch out and touch
Yet just out of reach

    In the horizon
    So small, drawing slowly near
    That which makes your world

Leather, sleek, softness
Inhaling heady tannins
Truly love shopping! ;)


(Wow, what were you guys thinking??)

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: Dare

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):

    Love the word ‘anticipation’ uses up 5 syllables all in one go!

  16. Laurie says:

    A day late and too busy. I hate when an entire month is taken up with traveling! Sure takes away my ‘play time’!
    I couldn’t come up with a quivering, fluttering in my Haiku. I like yours! Have a great week.

  17. Rosie says:
