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: Meditate

    Quieting the brain
    Awaiting slumber; darkness
    Holy crap! The blog!

Instantly awake
Race to the office, flick switch
Just have enough time

    Quieting again
    Allow psyche inner peace
    (Relief!) Meditate

Saved today’s haiku!
Time to destress, meditate
Vacation needed


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: Ponder

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!)

    I literally finished and hit save less than 2 minutes ago! …and now I’m REALLY going to bed. Good night, Haiku-ers!

  2. G-Man says:

    Thanks for hosting…G

  3. You always do such a great job. I feel a little bad going sillytastic this week…but it’s the first thing that popped into my mind about the theme and I had to go with it. And might have to rewatch Grease this weekend. ;)

  4. Madeleine says:

    Loved your haiku’s this week, full of humour. :O)

  5. Jamie says:

    Okay I’m in.
    Know the feeling in your haikus very well. Well written!

  6. Great haikus! I really know how that feels. Sigh. I need to destress right now. Take me with you on vacation ;). Thanks for hosting again.

  7. This week it’s “meditate,” and next week “ponder.” Looks like you’re developing a theme again. What’s coming in the weeks ahead? “Ruminate”? “Contemplate”? “Daydream”? Or perhaps “woolgather”? Can’t wait to see!

    Mine is up for this one!! I think I need to destress too!! Burning too much of that midnight oil!! :)

  9. Hello again, Another haiku wednesday this time meditate as prompt. Not an easy one, but I will give it a try.

  10. I find that contemplating haiku is meditative itself. The rhythm of the words can calm the mind like the sun’s warmth.

    I hope I’m not too late as I just found this web site an hour ago and so had to try it! But I think I submitted my haiku twice. It has only been recently that I have been writing them (in groups if that is allowed?). Thank you.

    I hope I am not too late to post this. Thank you.

    Hi, I posted a comment just now, but I’m not sure if it went through. I don’t want to post the same comment twice. I just want to say that it’s a wonderful prompt. Thank you and have a wonderful week.
