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: Bramble

    Bramble thorns prickle
    Hard going but worth the fight
    Juiciest berries

Prickly old bramble
Waiting silently to strike
Protective of fruit

    Shake together; Gin
    Blackberry, lemon, sugar
    Pour over crushed ice

Being chased by hounds
Ran through briars and brambles
1814 sucked

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

₪ Next week’s theme: Storm

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 was fun–I came up with it straightaway! That doesn’t always happen. :-)

    I like the idea of the thorns protecting the fruit….and thanx for the reminder of that tune – I sang it with my dad, and we’d always end up laffing,,..

    My first Haiku Wednesday. Just left daily Nahaiwrimo. Love this as first prompt for me! Am new to haiku since February but learning and open to criticism.
