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: Escape

    Wall to wall (to wall)
    Precarious boxes perch
    Waiting to escape

Decade left behind
Memories and Wee One made
A good place to live

    A long time coming
    Trials and tribulations
    Escaping what’s past

A last look around
Future is bold but unclear
Deep breath. Move onward

* I’m not around this week or next (I have things scheduled, not to worry!) We’re moving and building/painting/tearing our hair out, and I most likely won’t be online too much. Wish me luck!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Chapters

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. Yes, I do wish you luck on the move. It’s always an adventure to escape one place for another. Be well, all of you!

  2. Such a hassle for a while, but such a sense of achievement at the end! All the best!

    wishing you a smooth and gentle move to your new home ~ haiku speaks well to your new transition ~ Ain’t life grand ~ hmm ~ most of the time ~ Thanks for hosting ~ despite all your life demands ~ (A Creative Harbor)

  5. Kathy donlan says:

    I love these haiku. I can feel the sad, sweet surrendering of the past.

  6. Lovely haiku! Good luck with your move!

    I’m compelled to rhyme
    and must lim’rick ev’ry day.
    There is no escape.

    Good fortune to you…..Moving is a trial, and just about most people’s least favorite chore…..I hope never to do it again!

  8. Green Speck says:

    All the best to you :-)

  9. My friend I am not on the list but would love to be.
    Much thanks, Melanie
