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: Pressure

    Queen: Under Pressure
    The first thought that came to me
    Try not to sing it ;)

Packing tape, bursting
All worldly goods spilling forth
One way to do it…

    Hosting this Christmas
    Already starting to plan
    Lots to live up to!

Not been eating right…
Few too many “comfort foods”
Jeans a little snug

Happy 18th birthday to the Teen! Well, it will be on Friday. Wait, if I have an 18 year old child, that makes me… oh wow. I need to sit down.

Haiku-ers – if you should be on the Hooked on Haiku List and you’re not, please leave me a message below! With the move and chaos, I’ve fallen behind not only on visiting you all (sorry…sorry) but keeping up with the list. Just let me know – I’ll get you up there ASAP.

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Spooky

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. That’s a lot of pressure. But nicely done.

  2. Pressure has different faces all connected to tensions! Great series of haiku!

  5. Teresa says:

    I have to say, I’ve had Queen’s song running through my head since last night when I started thinking about writing today’s haiku. :-) We have way too many pressures on us this time of year.

  6. How To Haiku says:

    Oil up your hands. Start
    applying gentle pressure.
    Rub and spread love.

  7. Mama Zen says:

    Yep! I immediately though of Queen.

  8. joanne says:

  9. Rachael says:

    Ha! I didn’t even get to your first haiku before I got the song in my head!
