haiku wednesday

This week's words are
button
luck
pretend



search button, dumb luck
please pretend you like my site
comments ease winter


button press, bad luck
pretend fairy patterns lost
windshield ice erased


I press The Button
I pretend it isn't me
good luck, humankind

Great luck that I don't pretend to like those. I press the button to say those are good!

Happy 2008!

Now I remember, Mrs. O'Leary's haiku. I do like your site, and your comic/macabre and touching takes on the prompts. As to mine, some people would consider God a "hypothetical amusement," as well.

you know? i was going to try the whole haiku route, but then that whole scene unfolded in front of me so i decided to use it.

am i the only person left, in the world, that still counts syllables on their fingers when trying to construct a haiku? i feel certain i am.

you however, DO NOT appear to have that problem and i am jealous. excellent use!

And yes, winter sucks. Bring on spring!

We sure have a lot of buttons in our world! Nice lighthearted tone for serious themes. Thanks for reading my contribution to 3ww.

I like when I can picture what the haiku is saying and I certainly can here! Great job!

Just hoping to ease winter a bit.

I always count syllables on my fingers, whether constructing a haiku or reading someone else's.
