haiku wednesday - December 17, 2008

This week's words are
hesitate
jealous
neglect

Once more, 7 of 17 syllables accounted for. But it's all good. I love a challenge.



I neglect to act
jealous of their fame, I yearn
still I hesitate


hesitate and lose
did I neglect to tell you?
jealous that I won


hesitate, jealous
you think they neglect your needs
while she has their love

Good good stuff. #1 is the one that struck me.

I like the first one as well although they all seem to have the same theme but that particular seems relatable to me

I love haiku, absolutely love it. And I love your first one most of all, too!

Although they're not really separable. I love the way you worked neglect, hesitate, and jealous throughout.

I like the first best.

And I don't envy your haiku skill. I look forward to read it every week.
