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: Battle

Note: Did you read my last post? Please take a minute…

    Parenting battle
    Teen living in a junk pile
    Time to kick her butt

He can, but she can’t?
Guess again, adjust your head
Or she’ll knock it off

    Too much belly bulge
    You have the power to change
    But have to want to

Butting heads, ire flares
Figure out priorities
Forget the battle


I’m on a business trip, and won’t be back to visit for this week! I know you’ll share the love amongst yourselves though, as always!

*** Please read the 4 simple guidelines above before you post your link – thanks!

Next week’s theme: Fiction

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)!

    We have similar parenting battles here and I am all too familiar with the Battle of the (Belly) Bulge… I like the diversity of your haikus :)

  5. Ah, those parenting battles. I know them well.

  6. Helen says:

    Like Anthony, I know them … however they are so buried in the past, I’ve almost forgotten. My children tell me they have. Now it’s grandchildren I watch do battle — from the sidelines!

  7. Kendall says:

    Love the topic!

  8. Ellecee says:

    I enjoyed your Haiku. The middle one applies to me personally. I am mid battle :-) The others too but not as closely.

  9. Teresa says:

    That teenage battle sounds so familiar to me. I’m glad my boy is older now. :-)
