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: Excel

    Images flitter, fleeting
    Coalesce, create

Talent, training, work
Instinctual responses
Excel and Conquer

    Terrific knowledge
    Infinite reality
    Become one with it

Excel, the spreadsheet
OCD Workaholic
Need to take a break!


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: Fleeting

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):

  2. This theme nearly stressed me out but I made it work… ;) Thank you for sticking around, even when I’m a lacking slacker. It’s good to be back!

    You made me think of sport, something I never excelled at! So I had a jibe in the last line.

    Great selection. I’m feeling haiku rusty at the mo’ so not taking part this week. I will resume again when the urge returns.

  5. I think “excel” will be difficult to write a haiku about, but I shall try

  6. Dear Jenn,

    This is one of those weeks that the prompt has me stumped. This is about the best that I can do:

    some words in haiku
    just don’t work at all–“excel”
    happens to be one

    Or this:

    in the haiku form
    some words should never be used–
    “excel,” for instance

    I’m so looking forward to working with “fleeting” next week!

      Awww thanks Becca!! :D You’re a sweetheart!

      I “think” in haiku/senryu/otheru, so it just seems to flow easily I guess? Never takes me more than 5 minutes to write mine.

  11. i agree with Becca! you epitomize excellence, Jenn. ?

    I wrote some senryu on excel charts. I generated random data.
