haiku wednesday - December 10, 2008

This week's words are
enemy
shatter
vague

I love the word vague. Always have. Not sure why. Maybe because it's only an o's tail different from vogue. Which is one letter different from rogue. Which means something sort of like maverick.



shatter peace, kill truth
something vague about his war
who's the enemy?


"answer hazy"? vague.
shatter the magic eight ball!
enemy inside


coffee enemy?
oh! gross. shatter my groove, dude.
be more vague next time

Rogues with vague policies are no longer in vogue.

And today's verification is "diserdag". "this Trade Union of German Employees"?

Glad to see haiku time back...

My favorite is 'coffee enemy'. Gave me an interesting visual.

I love #1 particularly. Apologies for not stopping by much lately.

Sarah Laurenson said...

I'm with Robin. That "coffee enemy" was catchy. Loved the first one, too. And the second. Aw heck. Love them all.

gene, you are an ogre. Have some ragu.

ThomG, thanks! I thought the words would be easy, but I like to use them as-is, and I found the form "shatter" more limiting than I expected. I kept wanting to make it "shatters" or "shattered." Hopefully I'll get to make the rounds soon. Thanks for keeping this alive!

Tumblewords, always a pleasure to have a visit from you. The smile is always what I start out trying for, but somehow the others sneak their way in there.

Winnie, glad you liked it. If I were the type of person to select a favorite child, that would be the one for this week.

Robin & Sarah, I actually have no idea what came over me when that one poured out. Oh, sorry. I hope that didn't create any other interesting visuals.

WW, no apologies needed. I've been scarcer than puddles on Las Vegas Blvd at noon in August. Thanks for stopping by! Hopefully we'll see more of each other in the new year.

I'll take the ragu, and throw it at the rogue, thankyouverymuch. "shatter peace" was my favorite, though I liked them all.
