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: Ponder

    Life, living, reasons
    Falling leaf, children’s laughter
    On this I ponder

Music, voices, joy
Friendship, distance, changes made
Revolving world, thoughts

    Sorrow, anger, wrath
    Light banished, unclear thinking
    Echoes in the dark

Brilliant blue sky
Fluffy clouds, sweeping past, sun
Clarity returns


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: Absence

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!)

    Most of your haiku are very relacing. There’s just one with a black cloud. Lovely thoughts.

  13. Are you going to keep the list open for a few more hours? I might have something else to post. If you don’t keep it open, I won’t be so heartbroken that I won’t survive! Just curious…

  14. This is a very beautiful haiku, Jenn… And once again it suits me so well. Sweeping the past, sun, clarify returns. That’s what I really need right now. Have a blessed week :)
