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: Dull

    Far from dull, was Frank
    Spending days on trails with Zack
    Far too soon, taken.

Leaves gone, colour dropped
Winter creeping in, cold nights
Dull days loom ahead

    Grey skies swirl with cloud
    Rain mixed with snow. Dread these days
    Autumn too soon passed

Depressive outlook
Geese flying past my window
The only life signs

For those who have been around for a long time, and remember my group, Main Street; we lost Frank this past weekend to a massive heart attack. We are shocked and saddened by his death, and he will be missed. RIP Frank Waugh, 1937-2012

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Fierce

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)!

    Stay home to do nothing
    Make no plans. Stick to routine
    Waste no time on arts

    Thanks for the thoughts, friends! I organized a wake for Frank last week, and J-B and I are singing at his memorial this weekend. We have sent him off the right way, and he will always be in our hearts.
