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: Happiness

    Just a single one
    Major internet snafu
    My unhappiness…

I haven’t had net access for a couple days, and had to sit in the Home Depot parking lot and steal their free wifi just to do this post :P Should have a tech here in a day or two to fix things, but until then… “happiness” is not exactly what I’m feeling!!

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

Next week’s theme: Annoyance

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)!

    After almost a month away from my blog I had a tendency to write more than the haiku..hope it’s o.k. to combine two posts in one, all with similar strain ;)

  2. My sympathies. I so hate when I lose the net! It’s so damn frustrating! Here’s an old limerick about a different type of web withdrawal (when my site is down)which you might relate to:

    Web Withdrawal Woes (Limerick)
    By Madeleine Begun Kane

    This outage has led me to think
    I’ve gone bonkers, berserk—need a shrink.
    I keep checking the site.
    It’s still down—what a plight!
    Web withdrawal may drive me to drink.
    Web Withdrawal Woes

    Good luck with your net connecction!

      Web withdrawal indeed! haha

      You know, it wouldn’t have been all that bad had I not realized how much work would be piling up on me while I was offline! And a few things required me to go sit in the parking lot at Home Depot again so I could at least get the most urgent things done. Other than that… I caught up on laundry and read a couple books, so not all THAT bad in retrospect!

  3. It’s no fun when that happens.

    Sorry you’re having such a tough day. I think I finally managed to fit the requirements for Haiku Wednesday this week.

  7. Teresa says:

    I feel your pain. There’s nothing so frustrating as not being able to have that technology.

  8. Kris Kennedy says:

    A walk on the beach
    Sand squishing between my toes,
    – A mind vacation

    Already sent a post out today, will respond next week through my blog making reference to your blog…great idea…glad you are sharing it.

  9. Ellecee says:

    So sorry to hear of your frustration. I can appreciate it – been there to often. Your haiku says it all.

  10. Rachael says:

    I hope you get your internet back soon!

  11. Mama Zen says:

    Nothing worse than wonky internet!

  12. I hate to say this, Jenn, but your unhappiness made me happy! (I feel your frustration, and glad that I’m not alone in having Internet issues!) :)
