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: Conversation

    Close your eyes… listen
    There’s nothing better than this
    Our conversation

Little things I miss
Twinkling eyes, that charming smile
Too much time passes

    Impromptu moments
    Coffee shared, laughter flowing
    Best times of our lives

Human contact. Touch
A soft word, a light gesture
Unique and special

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

Next week’s theme: Spring

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)!

      That’s a shame – it’s one of life’s simplest pleasures! I’ve always thought sitting down with you over coffee would be a marvelous experience. One day :)

    Your description of conversation makes it seem to hover like a palpable presence in the air between two people. Beautifully done.

  8. Suzy says:

    Nice Haiku – liked the last one the most.

  9. Nice prompt, love to conversate with others and now written a haiku on conversation.

  10. I’ve given it a slight twist … when conversations turn to gossip …

  11. This comment is actually for kkkkaty: I would love to comment on your blog, but I simply don’t have the patience to wade through that wretched word verification. If you would kindly turn it off, you’d find me visiting regularly. Thank you!
