haiku wednesday - July 30, 2008

This week's words are
gamble
omitted
temporary

Tough words this week for haiku. Oddly, the one that is giving me fits is omitted. You'd think temporary, which insists on hogging up so many of the 17 available syllables, would be the problem word.



temporary bliss
he omitted herpes fact
no-condom gamble


omitted Mom's name
wedding invite gamble failed
life's temporary


temporary sweat
omitted jewelry from form
gamble at customs
