Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Welcome to “Sensational Haiku Wednesday!”

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!)

Here are the rules:

      Structure: While Haiku may be written by some in other styles, for THIS meme only 5-7-5 is acceptable. At least one of your haiku must be in this format.
      Theme/Prompt: We have a new prompt each week, and your haiku needs to be related to it, if not include the actual word in it. Feel free to leave a word suggestion in a comment!
      Linking: When you post your link, link to the blog post with your haiku, not to the main page of your blog.
      Reciprocate: If you participate and post your link on my website, you must have a link back here on your post. It’s only fair.

    Folks not complying with the above risk having their links removed. Don’t make me be all “Grrrr” and stuff, it makes me grumpy! Thanks for your cooperation!

This week’s theme is: Freestyle (whatever you like!)

    Tiny for most, a new look
    Bit of a shake up!

So this is winter?
Fog, rain, not much snow or ice
Feels more like it’s spring!

    Cowardly captain
    Abandons ship; no excuse
    Deadly consequence

I have a secret
My little friend flying far
Hope for safe landing…


Next week’s theme: Silhouette

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 ;)

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):

You can also choose to use only a text link, or either of these additional images I made for your use!

    Freestyle means Carte Blanc?
    Loved your Haiku’s Jenn.
    You are the Queen.
    Thanks for hosting

    • Jenn says:

    Little friend, hmmm?

    Holiday near done
    Back to school in a fortnight
    Mummy just can’t wait.

  3. Broot says:

    Accidentally linked with my main page instead of the haiku post. Feel free to delete my first link. ;)

  4. Rinkly Rimes says:

    For some reason my main blog address came up. It seems the previous writer had the same problem.

  5. I enjoyed your haiku. Here’s a political one:

    My head is spinning
    from Republican debates.
    I’m begging — please stop!

    • Ria says:

      We need to add a test of common sense to get on the ballot – of course then Washington would be a ghost town.

    • Jenn says:

      yeah, you folks certainly have your hands full down there! I have to say I still love Obama and hope he gets to continue…

      Great freestyle haiku my friend!

  6. I like the new look
    and all the rules in your book—
    by them I will play!

  11. becca givens says:

    Love the new image design for our blogs … will post tomorrow … as I am not posting anything today (Dark Wednesday)!

  12. Loved to do this one on silhouette in the classical way.

  13. Sorry I had overseen the prompt for this week. Well … I have already posted for the next week :)

  14. Olive Tree says:

    Submitted mine, but I hate that I have to wait until the next day after work to visit other blogs as I always seem to create and post one close to bed time. Maybe my creativity/right brain functions better in the evening, whereas my day time is taken over by the left brain. Yup, I think that’s the answer. So I will visit tomorrow. Thanks for the very fun opportunity to go any direction this week, Jenn. Loved, loved, loved it! :)
