Some sites do not have their handle showing in their Twitter share option on their posts. I have to put in the handle from knowing they have one when I share the post on Twitter. How to get your Twitter Handle to show when people Share your blog articles.
If you do not see your Haiku listed below, make certain the ping back or your comment with the link is in the comments of the Challenge Post. This year I won’t be checking for those who may have missed notifying the Challenge Post, in some way, of participation. Unfortunately it takes way too long to complete the review in that manner. My apologies if that offends anyone.
Thank you for so many checking their ping backs.

If an author does not have a comment, as do the entries, that means they did not have an entry this week, but I left their place here. Is it for the benefit of advertising their work? No, it is for the ease of my formatting their next entry in the challenge. It’s a bear to do those. (And maybe there is a little heart felt type thing I have for authors.)
NEW! Simple Girl: Memories | PERFERVIDDREAMS. Three Haiku with different imagery but with the same result. If you get what I mean. Read the following and you see where I got her name from. “I am a simple girl lost in her thoughts trying to keep a track of those…chasing some dreams and hopeful to achieve them..someone who wants to fly like a free bird and discover the skies..!!I love to read and write both..For me a day spent reading and writing is not just a day passed but a day Lived well…After reading something you are wiser than you were before you started to read…And so the scope to learn is infinity and beyond. Through this blog, I just want to put my thoughts (howsoever strange or common or ghostly or pleasing), express my emotions into … [click to read the rest].”
NEW! Mahitha Kasireddi: Trail of Questions | MagyKars. A thinky first entry. “Trying hard to fight my fears and depression. The only way I know to vent out my madness is writing poetry and prose… I’ll keep you posted !”
NEW! Cathy: Vintage Knots | Rambling in the Garden. Very nice first entry. Stuck to her theme, and she participates in the Weekly Photography Challenge with Daffy and Melissa. I really liked the photo used for the Vintage challenge. “I had not intended to write a blog, but was talking to a friend about how, now I had more time, I wanted amongst other things to keep a better record of the garden and nurture its spiritual aspects, as well as writing poetry more often. She suggested I…[read the rest of the story].”
NEW! Neel Anil Panicker: Armed and Fragrant! | NeelWritesBlog. So I came up with the title of the Haiku. I thought it a humorous take on the poetry provided. Go check out the poem and this BRAND NEW BLOG based on writing!
NEW! Lisa Greenbow: Gardens and Haiku | Greenbow. Evergreen and white. Lisa found us through one of our other New Offenders, Cathy. Lisa is one of our BlogSpot.Com members.

Judy: Seriously Fresh. | Edwina’s Episodes. I know, I know, it says Seriously in the title, but even though she says she went a little more serious this week, I think you will all agree this belongs in the humor section. @EdwinasEpisodes
Charly Priest The Beauty Fish | Crazy Life. Um, erm, (that’s me trying to keep my lunch from paying a visit) a Haiku with humor, imagery, and a great use of not only the prompt words but another as well. Down here in the South we have something called Hushpuppies that we eat with Fish.
Marie: Fresh Start | The Syllabub Sea. Not only a great message to this one, but also a well done use of photo and accessorizing.
Olga: The Write Inspiration | Stuff and what if. You see what I did there? Write, right? I so punny.
Nato: Desire of a Stale Heart | Chasing Life and Finding Dreams. Nato gives a story with a series of linked Haiku. I almost created a new category of WISDOM but then I would have one more decision in this old brain to sort through. @MichelleLunato
Clarence: Je Ne Sais Quoi | PrarieChat. For a moment I thought I was on TJ Paris’ blog. Okay, Clarence, too much thinky for me here. Grrr. Muahahahaha.
Ritu: Clothes Horse/The Freshest of Them All | But I Smile Anyway. Slave to trends and stuck in the past. @PhantomGiggler

Ared (anghulinghugotero): Politics | ANGHULINGHUGOTERO. Around the world it’s all the same.
Sandra: Vintage | Wild Daffodil. The Haiku prompt matched up perfectly with our PhotoChallenge ladies’ prompt word this week. Love the textiles she shared. You can find the list of this years photo challenges on Daffy’s blog by clicking here.
Oneta Hayes: Bittersweet | Sweet aroma. Oh how this one is so true. Things going and coming and going and coming and you moving along and watching it all happen.
Clarence: Lunch Time! | PrarieChat. A lot more to this one than you might first think of. Keep reading it and going over that last line. There is a story there.
jazzytower (PR): ReNew The View of The Old to You | Thoughts and Entanglements. So I got started with that title and couldn’t stop. Sue me. I mean as in Vincent, not like the legal way.
Terri: Fresh Style | The BeeSpeak. Making classics work. It took me a moment to recognize the image, but then I went way back to my childhood. We had some of these from a tree in the middle of a field that were as large as your head.
Pancake Bunnykins: Bread and Coffee | A Real Messy Beautiful Twisted Sunshine. Shopping list? No, she’s trying to make us hungry. Evil she is. For those visiting this blog, the like button is to the left of the top image. A little different than the usual theme’s we visit.
Suzanne Miller: Into the New | Art and Life. Going her own way. Funky, fly, and fresh.
Greg: Rebel with a Cause | Potholes in the Road of Life. Greg has a cause, I’m just not sure his Haiku does. Two this week and I think his illness tainted mind may have warped a bit. He DOES give a warning before reading them. @greg_wolford
Becky: Bundle Up Buttercup | Becky G? Oh, That’s Me! Style with sense this week.

VronLaCroix: Frost fields | Simply Snapshots. Frozen by creation.
Melissa: Vintage Vogue. | The Aran Artisan. Grandparents Vogue before Vogue was cool? Melissa and one of our other Haikumily members, Sandra the Daffy one, helped compile this years list of ‘photo word of the week‘ challenge. You have the words ahead of time and can plan ahead and have weeks of blog posts ready and set to go. She and Daffy like to combine the photo and the Haiku challenges into one. That spreads the post around to people with different interests. I believe at least 3 of our members participate now. @TheAranArtisan

TJ Paris: The latest in fashion |La vie est trop courte pour boire du mauvais vin. I almost reblogged this one just to have that photo on my blog. @Roccoco_a_GoGo
Elusive: Opaque | Elusive Trope. Very nice. Great photo and Haiku combination. The color of the subject of the photo is amazing.
Ken G.: Fresh Air | RIVRVLOGR. Can’t be it.
Andre Jayaprana: Somewhere near the Kitchen | andrejayaprana. I like to call this one Mother-in-law. Might be some humor there. Muahahahah.
Roz Hill: Standing up to Time | Small Spaces and the good life with Roz and Phil Hill. No matter the weather, some things keep lasting..
Denis: Styled Up | HaikuHound. Great photography of some Crested Pigeons. This is one of the great things about Denis’ blog, he brings a great deal of the animal kingdom from Australia into other parts of the world, especially birds. I’ve seen different types of pigeons at the bird feeders outside my window but we don’t have this type here, at least I haven’t seen them.
