sen-SA-tional!


The Sensational Haiku Wednesday topic this week is, in fact, sensational. Ha!

Sensationalism

Thirty two ounces
does not a fat man make. Preach
but don't steal freedom


Sensational News

Teaching positions
blooming around me. A sign?
Fate might be speaking...


Sensational

Eyes closed, skin tingles
with a heightened awareness
feeling the moment

Do you have something sensational to share?

I remember once having 3 mins each on 10 topics of the sensation of space, it was awesome! I especially love the last poem! Thanks for sharing! (-:

Feel the moment!
Sensational? I just brought back a teleporter from the future.

J. A. Bennett said...

I agree about the soft drink thing. It's like, really? That's not going to stop people from gaining weight.

Julie Luek said...

I love your Haikus! This was very fun and vivid.

Dana said...

Love these—as usual!

Have a great Wednesday, Tara. ☺

LD Masterson said...

These were great. Especially the first one.

M.J. Fifield said...

I love that third haiku. Very awesome!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Another great set of Haikus on a Wednesday. Thanks Tara.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Wow. That last line sent chills through me. Great writing Tara.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Love it!! Totally agree. I'm chunky and I only drink diet. They'd have to limit chocolate.

The last haiku is sensational !!!

Jessie Humphries said...

I am not nearly at poetic as you. I got nothin'! But I did enjoy that :)

Christina Lee said...

OOooooh very good, you!

The soda thing is sort of ridiculous. What about all the places that just sell bottomless drinks. I heard a better proposal: tax a penny on every soda in the US. It'll generate enough revenue to actually come up with a good way to fight obesity (about 5 billion a year).

Mark Means said...

While I'm not, usually, big on haikus....those were great!

Especially the one about the drinks...lol :)

Christine Rains said...

Awesome! I think that maybe 2013 will be a lucky year for you. :)

Elise Fallson said...

Ooooo, your last one was sensational! (; Seriously though, loved these.

anthonynorth said...

Definitely sensational haiku. Enjoyed them.

Brinda said...

You are too good at this!

Hazel Ceej said...

Wonderful take. I wonder when was the last time I felt my skin tingle. Memories :)

Optimistic Existentialist said...

These are awesome! Love the one about the soft drink :)

Nicely done.

But I don't share your view on sugary sodas. They are totally empty calories. 272 in a 32 oz Coke. That's almost a half hour of walking at 4 mph to burn off.

Plus - it isn't stealing freedom. Now - The Patriot Act - that's stealing freedom. Ditto forced ultrasounds.

Cheers!

My brother drinks pop all the time, and he's still lean and lanky. Though in place of gaining weight, he's had some problems with his teeth because of all that Coke he imbibes.

Nothing sensational, just too much going on. Hoping for a drama free weekend.

Tara Tyler said...
