Haiku Wednesday: Spontaneity

Join the fun!

Started by Jenn at You Know...That Blog?
To start your haiku you need to know the basics. 
At it's very core haiku is simply 3 non-rhyming lines
of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. 
Come Join the fun.

This week's theme: Spontaneity
Next week's theme: Parent(s/ing)

Been waiting for this all week!
But I'm not prepared.

What to write about?
How to be spontaneous?
Hence it wouldn't be.

A vision came thus.
The best diversion of all!
Marital "whimsy"!

Please enjoy my prose.
Unconventional for me.
Hubby will be pleased! : )

"Loving Embrace - Magnolia Blooms"
Painting by Heather Hurzel

A quick, furtive glance;
Stolen kisses from true love;
Igniting passion.

Wow, above and beyond this time! Awesome haiku!!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking you like to haiku...

Polly, whats with all your friends writing you haiku comments but NOT PARTICIPATING in our fun group? Are they closet haiku-ers, afraid to come out? Are they CHICKEN? I think you need to challenge them to participate. Call them names if you need to. ;)

I don't know how you do these things. You've either been doing Haiku forever or spend all week on them.

Been gone a few days.
But I'm back and checking in.
Writing a quick note.
