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: Spring

    Leaves, weeds, overgrowth
    Trimming, cleaning, planting, pots
    Hard work but worth it!

Savory or sweet
Asian, Euro, Everywhere
The worldly spring roll

    Speaking in whispers
    Silent then bursting alive
    Meandering brook

Tops made of rubber
Bottoms are made out of springs
A Tigger Haiku

Next week is our 150th week of Haiku! Amazing! I wasn’t able to visit last week (taxes, etc.), but I’ll try to get around this week!

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

Next week’s theme: Landscape

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)!

    I like all your takes on spring.

    • Dear KKKaty,

      Would you please consider ridding your blog of word verification? It makes leaving comments VERY difficult. Comment moderation will serve the purpose of weeding out unwanted comments quite nicely. You really don’t need word verification, and those of us who struggle with trying to decipher it will thank you for your consideration!

  2. Excellent quartet. Enjoyed them all.

  3. An interesting collection of images! Especially loved the melodic romance of the 3rd haiku!
