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

    Joining new song birds!
    Been a long time quieted
    Honoured to be asked

Lusty young ladies
Corseted and full of fun
Nero’s Fiddle, hey!

    Quiet no longer
    Main Street a wonderful past
    The future spells fun!

Sudden path; taken
Throwing caution to the wind
Three Jenns… look out world!

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Reaction

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)!

You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0 feed. Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    listen and write rhymes
    don’t think, just let the rhymes flow
    to a dope beat

    Brassy songbirds five
    There’s never a dull moment
    What’s with all the Jenns?

    The holiday week has me all off, so I’m just now linking up. I love your series. The last one sounds like something fun is afoot!

    I just ran across a site that reviews movies with haikus. They are funs to read —short and sweet —and sometimes a bit snarky. If you want to check out the site, you can find it here:

    Also, I thought, if you are searching for a weekly theme, it might be fun to write haiku reviews of movies, past or present.

  11. Can’t seem to get the button on my post. What am I doing wrong?


  12. So sorry, I can’t seem to post to this site. I am doing something wrong but do not know what. Help! I have not had any problem with other sites.
