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: Drift

    Continental drift
    The separations it caused
    Will they meet again?

Nudge nudge and wink wink
Oooh say no more, say no more…
Do you get my drift?

    Drift along, silent
    Weep gently on thirsty fields
    Silver lined rain cloud

Drift away sorrow
Leaving lightness in your wake
Release from worry

*** Please read the 4 simple guidelines above before you post your link. I had to remove 5 links from last week’s haiku list, and that really made me sad. They’re pretty simple and reasonable instructions…

– thanks!

Next week’s theme: Celebrate

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 love how many of these you could do with such different feels for the same topic. I do like the last two best!

    A wonderful assortment…
    You always manage so many different interpretations of the prompt! I’m always impressed!

  7. Like you, I’d like to see sorrow drift away–far away from everyone!
