haiku wednesday - April 8, 2009

This week's words are
flirt
ploy
stunning

Crazy day at work. Leaving for vacation in the early morning. It was all I could do to get these done. May miss next week. Happy Poetry Month! The first two below are a sort of he-said, she-said. The third is unrelated.



you're stunning tonight
my ploy to make you jealous
I flirt with your friend


you flirt--I punch, hard.
your ploy ends in broken nose
how's that for stunning?


tough boys flirt with war
stunning ignorance displayed
this ploy failed before

Flirting with readers
Wonderful Ploy Pete-
Stunning post indeed!!

Loved them each... loved them all.

Was all smiles over the second one. You shoud seriously consider publishing a book on a collection of Haiku's.
