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: Photograph

    Your life in a shot
    Photographs for the youngsters
    A lasting memoir

Camera panic
Point it away from me please!
I’d rather take it

    Envy those who smile
    Know the camera loves them
    Me? Rarely good ones

Perhaps self image
In need of developing
Something to ponder…

Let’s see if the Linky publishes this time… if not, I’ll check first thing in the morning, and get it set up. I have no idea why suddenly it gets stripped out every week when I schedule a post. *sigh*

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Revisit

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)!

    See a scene you like.
    Frame it, adjust the focus.
    Snap of the shutter.

  5. Lolly says:

    I debated whether to post mine. It’s morbid, but in a historical way.

  6. Michele says:

    photographs fill the
    holes of fading memories
    the autumn of life?

  7. becca givens says:

    Happy New Year, Jenn … lovely set … the first is my favorite!!

  8. Michele says:

    Heather’s haiku:
    priceless memories
    your face in a photograph
    captured forever?

    Chelsea’s haiku:
    Photos of canyons
    Change to Giza Pyramids
    Spring may bring Red Woods! ?

  9. unfetteredbs says:

    happy new year and thanks for doing the prompts

  10. Jenn says:

    Some fabulous haiku in this list, and some new people – welcome aboard!

    Also a few people I can’t leave comments for, because you don’t have Name/URL enabled. Know that I tried, anyway…

    Also, please remember that the meme is 5-7-5, so at least one of your haiku MUST be in that format. Thanks!
