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: Freestyle

    Not even packed yet
    …and we move in three weeks! Yikes!
    Lack motivation

Can’t stop the shopping
Growing pile of new things…fun!
Until we move it

    Time to rest is now
    Soon we work into the nights
    Quick! Hire a painter!

Hoping good neighbours
Develop into good friends
Make moving worthwhile

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

₪ Next week’s theme: *Traditional* Haiku

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)!

    Thanks Lovely haiku you wrote.
    I have added mine…let me know
    if this holds true or not :)

  2. I’ve moved many times in my life – always a hectic period.

  3. It’s long time ago that I was here to post, but I had to try it another time … as you may the classical haiku 5-7-5 isn’t really my cup of tea, but I have written one. Enjoy reading.

  4. Mama Zen says:

    It’s really hard to get motivated to start packing!

  5. Teresa says:

    Moving is such hard work! I hope you have great neighbors.

  6. I don’t have time to post this on my blog, so I’ll just post it here:

    When a man’s life ends
    years after its past due date
    great sadness, relief.

    Frankly, Jenn, I do not envy you … in the moving aspect anyway (packing and unpacking)!!!

  11. Jenn says:

    This will be our 9th move during our marriage, and not the last one by any stretch :) Not looking forward to it at all, but I have very little stress with this one, believe it or not :)

  12. joanne says:

    I absolutely abhor moving! the last time was 11 years ago, and I procrastinated so much, my husband ended up doing almost all of it, and he said that if there is a next time, he’s leaving everything and starting fresh!
