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: Middle

    Middle Aged? Really?
    Half over, or half to go
    Life… what you make it

Decide which way now
Can’t spend your whole life choosing
Middle of the road

    That which is neither
    To the left, nor to the right
    Must be the middle

Common sense dictates
Rules of the road. But you, sir?
My middle digit

*** Please read the 4 simple guidelines above before you post your link.

₪ Next week’s theme: Talent

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)!

  1. Do you really wave that middle digit at obnoxious drivers? :)

  2. That middle digit can come in useful at times :-)

    Not the oldest nor
    the youngest — the middle child.

    Jenn, it would be hard to pick a favorite out of all your haiku because I like them all!

    I keep wondering if there is an email reminder of this challenge…I keep forgetting to search for it, and then last week forgot to post what I wrote.

    I do love the challenge…like the prompt “middle”…
    so many ways to go with it.
