This week's words areapartmentbegannumb
I like. As I am moving house, the second one struck home..if you know what I mean.BTW, your link at 3WW takes it back to the 3ww post, not here!
i think so often about all of the peoples lives that are consumed in money problems,, facing shut offs foreclosures.. this is the first time in my life since i was 15 years old that i have a home i will not loose to such avarice... i cannot tell you what calm that allows one to feel.....
I really loved them all--how they wove into each otherAs I'm selling an apartment in one of the last remaining good areas and planning to buy a townhouse in a down area, I feel a bit as if I'm profiting off others misery
A nice progression, and I think you had more in your head too. ;)rel
very nice, i like how well they flow together.
An ode to these troubled times - nicely done!
Very nice... You can find my entry here: The Fire Have a great day!
the first for me ...such issues are the worst..
These were all really good. You could feel the entire story in each of them.
Thanks to all of you for dropping by and commenting.gautami--thanks for the link Rx! I went and recommented on bone's site.paisley--I couldn't agree more. Though I don't come from that socioeconomic range, I see it a lot in my dealings with United Way and other groups, and I have come to understand it more and more.pia--no guilt. the whole point of "buy low, sell high" is to be a better planner than the other guy. if you've ever bought or sold stocks, it's the same thing.rel--I still like yours better. :-)leigh, tumblewords, laane, and UL--thanks for your kind words!tc--too late to read yours tonight, but I hope to on Thursday.
Why do I suddenly feel poor? Great use of the words. Timely to the country's woes.
great haikus - always amusing, always an interesting read.
I like these. Your previous one about the toad was funny also.
Loved them all..but especially the second. You do this so well, seems so effortless and they all seem to blend together, one falling into the other.
three great kus.. all so numbing.. now you're talking No.9 in no.3... we're all losin little bits every day... just a little note…b/c thrz another gal named littlewing in the poetry blog community im changing my name from littlewing to onemorebeliever…tho my blogname wont change
You have captured the current state of so many people in your phrase: "soul numb with fatigue"A shame it came to this, whether by their personal mismanagement or misleading business practices - or both.
