haiku wednesday - November 26th, 2008

This week's words are
fury
guilt
thankful

How could I go nearly a month without haiku wednesday? Maybe it was such a complete, thorough failure with NaNoWriMo that I inadvertently made it NoNoHaiKu as well. Or maybe it was just work, which has been overwhelmingly busy but terribly interesting.



Plymouth Fury chokes
gas price goes down; so does guilt
thankful it still runs


despite your fury
I feel no guilt in her bed
thankful it's over


mom's fury, no guilt
just thankful she don't call cops
I'm outta here, man

Tough words, tough words. But you pulled it off. I like what you did with all three.

The haiku in the 3WW comment area was superb, as well. Love the currency of these - hard hitting truth that hides on the surface. Love it!

Hello PJD, I absolutely love that first haiku about O. J. Every word so well placed. Have a nice night.

Tough words but you made them work for you.

The second is my favorite!

I guess those 3 words just sort of make one want to write morbid poems, I like the one you left in your comment at 3ww, but these sort of write themselves don't they? don't really care to be reminded of the first one, still well done with the words

not sure what's going on with the comment dates - this is new work, I'm sure and I really enjoyed it. The Plymouth Fury tickles me....

Re the comments: I accidentally overwrote an old post instead of creating a new one. Thus my haiku over at the 3WW site indicating the backups are good. (I do have the original post squirreled away.) But I didn't realize until now that the old comments from the old post persisted with the new post. Of course. Sigh.

Lots of venom but tightly controlled delivery! Well done!
