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: Rare

    Elusive, wanted
    Never to hold; just a dream
    Impossible need

Brilliant bauble
So far out of reach, this gem
One of a kind stone

    Some call it blue rare
    Disgusting, dripping… yucky!
    Can’t you just cook it?!

A man of his word
Humorous and trustworthy
My father; good man.


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: Debonnaire… Still sense a theme? ;)

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!)

    Nice set of Haikus Jenn…
    Thank You for hosting.
    I have no clue why you couldn’t comment on my blog.
    But I did change something in my inner workings so at least you should be able to comment..Thanks

  2. Thom says:

    Love the haikus. I especially like the last one. Okay I’m trying something different. I hope my link works. If it doesn’t, well you know where to look :) MWAH

    The spotted and veined throughout with blue, blue-gray or blue-green mold, and carries a distinct smell. … Yucky indeed!! Love to possess that multi-faceted bauble. You must have inherited those great qualities from your father. What a lovely combination of wit, humor and trust!!

  4. Hazel says:

    Some baubles are fun to collect, especially if they happen to be rare. I love the last haiku; makes me miss my father.

    P.S. hurrying off to Thom’s, lol! The man’s back hahah!

    • Jenn says:

      Hi Hazel! Thom’s is on his Google+ profile, where he will be posting from now on I think. I imagine you can only see it if you’re on Google+…

      By the way, I can’t comment on your blog because you don’t have Name/URL enabled (see my blinky note up there…) but I enjoyed your haiku. I don’t think I want to see that movie though :)

  5. Hazel says:

    His link’s not loading up :( Elusive Thom. Rare type of comeback.

  6. jamie says:

    I came across your blog a few days ago, and decided to try your haiku challenge.
    I was thinking of ‘rare meat’ too, but you got there first! I enjoyed your haikus.

  7. Nice haiku!

    Here’s one I haven’t posted on my blog yet:

    A rare silence hits,
    disquietingly quiet
    to inner alarm.

  8. Margo Benson says:

    All these are such completely different takes on the theme – wonderful. Like others, I love the last one, it makes me think of my own Dad.

  9. What a nice little haiku-suite. Thank you for sharing.

  10. tara tyler says:

    you touch on all the rareties beautifully.
    especially the last one!

  11. RiA says:

    Love them – the last one is especially poignant

  12. zongrik says:

    i put up a science Haiku, with some made up science for the sake of poetic expression.

  13. becca givens says:

    Jenn – you amaze me with your multiple Haiku(s) each week. Thank you for sharing and hosting each week.

  14. Jenn,
    Found you through one of my favorite Haiku’ers, Becca Givens.

  15. knot2share says:

  17. Laurie says:

    Hi Jen. I didn’t get a Haiku done the past week. Crazy life and job too. Hopefully I’ll find a debonnaire haiku for this coming Wednesday :)

  18. One of my favorites among poems is haiku. It may be in it’s short form but has complete thought. Simple yet full of meaning.
