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: Fresh

    Central vac, new build
    Dark hardwood, footprints, old dog
    Ten seconds… fresh dust.

Hand in jean pocket
Another expense comes up
Wallet wearing out!

    Fresh vistas… it’s dirt
    Awaiting grass, trees, paving!
    For now; potted plants

Pink toolbox workout
Bought as a joke but awesome…
Hand me my level!

We’re getting there! I still hate moving though. I’ve been using the pink girlie toolbox my hubby bought me a few years ago as a joke, but it’s really fabulous! Today I finished putting up towel bars and TP holders, etc. in all the bathrooms, and they’re all perfect, and level. I rock. Tomorrow I’m going in search of wire spice racks to mount on the appliance closet’s door, because I don’t have a spice cupboard in the new kitchen like I did in my massive last kitchen. Hopefully I’ll find something perfect – wish me luck!!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Bridge

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)!

    Good luck finding the perfect spice rack. I’ve just moved, too & although it’s not a new house, there are still a million things to fix up & change. Wish I had a little pink toolbox — that might make it more fun :)

  5. Kathy donlan says:

    This series of haiku is certainly fresh. There is such a newness about it.

  6. Love the connection between haiku ideas and your moving experiences! “Fresh dust” made me chuckle!

  7. JazzBumpa says:

    Good luck.

    I think you’ll find a way to make it work.

    I love the image of the dog prints in the dust! Memories. I’m new here, hope I linked up correctly. Thanks for hosting! I love haiku but usually don’t follow the 5-7-5 rule so this will be a new exercise for me.
