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: Fiction

    You think I can’t tell?
    Looking down, guilty swallow
    Speaking in fiction

Harmless fantasy
Brave new worlds, flying dragons
Lover of fiction

    Balancing budget
    Trustworthy politicians
    Wouldn’t that be nice

Children’s fairy tales
Mythological creatures
Faith in the unseen


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

Next week’s theme: Freestyle (your choice)

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)!

    Great haiku again. I love ‘faith in the unseen’ best. And fairy tales! I have never stopped ‘believing’ in them.

  2. Enjoyed all of those. Fiction from every angle.

  3. Beautiful set of haiku! Fairy tales can come true.

    Have a great week, all!

    I’m not so sure that Dragons are Fiction!
    Thanks for hosting…G

  6. Bruce says:

    It’s so hard to separate fiction from reality in a media-soaked world; as your haiku set nicely points out!

  7. Kendall says:

    I love your politician haiku. I like all of your haikus but especially that one. Well done!

  8. Helen says:

    Jenn, will you please remove both of my links .. for some reason I was unable to successfully connect.

    My Haiku

    Tell me it’s not true
    Please say the news is fiction
    Truth so hard to bear

  9. Helen says:

    I sincerely apologize to all of you … I thought I had it right the third time, checked spelling, etc .. but nothing seems to work this morning.

      Hi Helen! You were using the wrong Blogspot url – you’re a Canuck, so use .ca instead of .com :)

      I found you and got you fixed up, not to worry! I tried to leave you a comment but you don’t have Name/URL enabled and I can’t…

    Every word of your haiku verses rings true.

  14. Maryden25 says:

    I love this verse from your Haiku today:
    “Balancing budget
    Trustworthy politicians
    Wouldn’t that be nice”
    If this happens, indeed it’s a nice one.
