haiku wednesday - March 26, 2008

This week's words are
glass
question
token



token woman, I
question board diversity
glass ceiling intact


cough up token, bitch
sit there smug in your glass cage
what's your question, sir?


question fogged-up glass
does faith need token of proof?
hazy reflection

Loved them all (including the one on 3WW)...but the last one -- now THAT one I really get...very much!

Enjoy SF!

Each one effective, the second my fav.

When I first saw token, my thoughts went the very same direction yours did in your first haiku.

tumblewords said...

Yup, those shake up the head, for sure! Nice work...

perfect! *all three!* I have never been good writing haikus so when I read ones that are very well done, I get unglued!*a good thing*!:o)

because i am in a questioning mood myself today... i love the third one... although the connotation of the glass ceiling was definitely not lost on me!!

pia said...

First it was the first, etc.

On reflection the second was my favorite

Have a wonderful time in San Francisco

I actually tried writing a haiku this week, but never could. It's not easy fitting three words into seventeen syllables sometimes.

I liked the first. It feels like discrimination against women has gotten pushed to the background in recent years.
