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!

This week’s theme is: Commit(-ted, -ting, etc.)

    Black sheep of the clan
    Born to raise a little hell
    Committed lifestyle

A lifetime of smiles
Relationship of the friend
Whole-heartedly stuck

    Judgmental error
    Made with the best intentions
    A shrug; let it rest

Our relationship;
Just believe in each other
Fully committed

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Freestyle

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)!

You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed. Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    ‘Whole-heartedly stuck’ made me smile. Commitment does wonders in a relationship.

  2. Enjoyed the haiku and a great message in the last.

  3. My first link is not the correct one. Please delete it. Thank you!

    “Fully committed” is the best way to be!

    Still some folks using everything except Name/URL in your comment forms. I can’t leave you a comment if you don’t let me :) Know that I tried!

    One may call it co-dependence, but my hubby and I are the very best of friends and laugh loud and often together, just like in your 2nd haiku…..and the black sheep of the family? That was me (or is it “that was I?” thanx for hosting a fun blog

    I am really impressed. This is such an interesting idea for a meme. I’ll join you occasionally when time permits. Have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary
