haiku wednesday - January 21, 2009

This week's words are
cadence
humble
resolve

The post-inauguration edition! Yay! I love the word cadence.



humble silence breaks
fingernails rap loud cadence
my resolve tested


smug bitch ain't humble
tight-assed stair stepper cadence
I resolve revenge


firing squad cadence
keeps me humble in my cell
resolve to escape

Second offering is dark and twisted, especially coming from you. Like them all, of course. I declare a tie with OxyJen (gotta keep it down the middle).

i think the first is my favorite but they're all really great! and clever.

I loved all three, but especially the second one! Each one created a whole different mood.

Great job - these are not just words but stories! I can feel each one!

Ooh! Very nice! I, too, especially like the middle one.

You have foiled me this time, but not the next, villain! *shakes impotent fist*

couldn't help put to smile at the first one, cracked up on the 2nd one and gasped at the third... an array of emotional resolve... didn't know you were tomlinson, absolutely loved your ascension story, congrats!

A tie? A TIE?!?

Hmm.

Yes, well. I demand a rematch.

Thanks, all y'all for reading and commenting. I finally got a chance to visit the other 3WW sites and enjoyed what was put forth this week.
