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!

    P.S. This is a really busy time for me – I may not get around to everyone each week. Sorry about that, but unfortunately I need to attend to business before pleasure!

This week’s theme is: Draft

    Carefully written
    Version after version penned
    Spent with final draft

But what kind, dear heart?
Sketch? Design? Scheme? Plan? Drawing?
No, Love, just a beer!

    Running over me
    Goose bumps and shaking shoulders
    Close the window, please!

Irish ancestor
Raising such magnificence
Working draught horses


(No relation to my family's horses I'm sure - just a lovely example!)

Next week’s theme: Fortitude

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! Use This one (dark), or This one (light)!

    Thanks for hosting this…

  2. I enjoyed each haiku!

    This is just a draft.
    It may resemble haiku,
    but I fear it’s not.

  3. Great haiku, as always.

    I changed the domain and got strange comments the first day.. and changed it back. I will try it one more time for you. :) And leave it that way for a week and see how it goes. Thanks for hosting.

    And forget the beer… I LOVE the Friesian horse. (I have a Friesian Sport Horse). Can’t believe I didn’t think of this… maybe I’ll have to add a photo… :)
