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: Talent

    Give it your best shot
    Work hard, and then work harder
    Talent’s just a part

The best of the best
Olympians; World Elite
Sportsmanship. Talent.

    Voice of sheer beauty
    Paintbrushes on blank canvas
    Elegant movement

Everyone has one
Trick is recognizing yours
Nurture the passion

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Courage

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)!

    Loved the last one. I had something similar.

    I liked your second and third haiku most. With the Olympics you can hardly run out of words!

    “Trick is recognizing yours”, isn’t that the truth!

    Excellent haiku ~ upbeat and inspiring ~~ thanks, namaste, (A Creative Harbor)

  8. The trickiest thing in life, I suppose, is recognising one’s talent, and then nurturing it, no matter what anyone else says.

  9. joanne says:

    You’re so ‘write’….It takes more than talent to succeed at your passion….it does take work…worded so well….

  10. Please feel free to delete link 24. It was posted by accident. Thanks.

    Great series of haiku. I think the third is my favorite, but truly the Olympics make a timely display of talent for the prompt.
