haiku wednesday - August 13, 2008

This week's words are
intimate
river
waiting

Since I enjoy wordplay, I'm disappointed in myself that I did not use intimate as a verb or waiting as a noun. I'm guessing very few people will. Anyway, I am so fried from too much work and too little sleep that I took a fairly straightforward, brute force approach this week. Happy hump day!



waiting for spring's warmth
snow sleeps, intimate with cold
a river one day


intimate whispers
rumors--a river of lies
waiting for your truth


remote river bridge
soldiers share intimate thoughts
waiting for doom's fire

There all good, but that last one was particularly excellent.

You got as intimate as you can!

:D

Reflecting on writers groups

The second was my favorite. I think it speaks much truth that often gets ignored.

Thank you all for dropping by! I always enjoy getting the comments. I like how people choose their favorite. I try to make them different, so it's interesting to see what speaks to you.

Regardless of whether you chose verbs or nouns, this is a lovely series. The first is my favorite-- snow dreaming of being a river-- what a great image.
