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: Onward

    The brand new year waits
    Fill life with kindness, laughter
    Let true purpose shine

Of the best soul mates
Aging, evolving, nurtured
Friendships move onward

    Promises. Easy.
    Commitments worth making; hard
    Fulfill, move forward

Scared, doubtful, worried
Future full of decisions
Eyes open. Forward

Happy New Year, Haiku Friends! The holidays have been hectic, and I spent some quality time in Emergency just after the ball drop, but I’m moving forward, onward, and looking at a bright new year! Cheers to you, with hopes of a wonderful year! ~ Jenn

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Photograph

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.

      Hi Carol, Happy New Year!!

      I have NO idea why the linkie keeps getting stripped out of my post. Sometimes it publishes fine, other times it gets taken out. I guess I have to stay up until midnight every week and keep an eye on it! It’s up now – sorry for the confusion!

  2. Wonderful haiku ~ like the soulmate one the best ~ Happy New Year to you ^_^
