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: Review

It reads like a song
Country… angst, lost love, big sighs
Blech. Let’s just move on!

    A wish for better
    Looking back largely pointless
    Get moving forward

Apathy, sadness
Dark days from lack of sunlight
Just get over it!


Sorry I didn’t get around to visit everyone last week – no excuse past that it was Christmas and I was swamped with people, presents, and packaging (alliterative, if not an excuse, yes?) I’ll have more time to get around this week, and will “see” you soon! Hope you’re all enjoying the holiday season!

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: Resolve

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!)

    Woohoo!! Happy to be part of the last entry for the year! As always, it’s a great prompt, and I enjoyed writing my haiku for this prompt. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. May the new year of 2012 bring you a more peaceful year and this website can keep going strong. I find myself enjoying writing haiku tremendously, and it’s all thanks to you. :)

  7. Wonderful idea to take this prompt at the end of year.

  8. I’ve reviewed this year:
    Most voters fared quite badly,
    and the pols did worse.

    Happy new year! And thanks for all the charming verse and fun prompts!

  9. “Looking back largely pointless”

    This line especially resonates with me after my recent trip to Mexico. I accidentally left my laptop’s battery charger in the Zacatecas airport, and didn’t discover the loss until I got home to the U.S. I raged for about 24 hours, then decided I needed to “Get moving forward,” and went out and (*sigh*) bought another battery charger. Lovely to be back online again!
