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!)

Please folks; while there are many different ways to write this form of poetry, to avoid confusion, for this meme we are ONLY using the 5-7-5 rule for our haiku. Thanks!

This week’s theme is: Malice

    Red hot rage turns cold
    Undercurrents run downhill
    It cannot end well

Absence of Malice
Malice in Wonderland (yuck)
Good and bad movies

    In the minds of men
    Such chaos often lurking
    Can’t let anger go

Shoppers; Black Friday
Christmas spirit? Avoid malls!
Women are crazy!


p.s. I can say that because I’m a woman! I’m also out of here on a mini, much-needed holiday with the Hubby. See you in a few days!

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: Preparation

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 almost used that Malice in Wonderland line.
    I’m glad I didn’t.
    You put it to MUCH better use.
    Thanks for hosting….G

    Love Malice in Wonderland. Must use that as a prompt for a short story one day!

  4. What a tough one. It wasn’t easy to write with the prompt “malice”, but I have given it a try.


  5. Great minds have thought alike this week, me thinks :-)
