haiku wednesday - May 13, 2009

This week's words are
bicker
nervous
trajectory

thommyg revealed the solution to one of life's greatest mysteries today by explaining how he selects the three words each week. However it happens, I appreciate it. Thanks, Thom!



vain judges bicker
nervous idols wait for votes
star trajectory


sage and fool bicker
over orb trajectory
nervous mobs listen


sage and fool bicker
over DOW trajectory
nervous mobs listen

I like how you built the last one on the second. And sly creativity. Good stuff.

I don't know how you can do these. I take forever trying to put the words into TWO SENTENCES! Jeez you're cool...

pjd said...

Thom, thanks! I felt like I was cheating changing only one word between the two, but they seem so right together.

gigidiaz--you are too kind! Can't wait to get to your two sentences...

Sarah Laurenson said...

You really nailed the first one!

Every time, it never fails, I read twice and let your words sink in.

good. moves me to try things other than regular prose.

Oh you have certainly nailed the Idol one. I love vain judges - so simple - so very clever.

The last two are right together. Acts of god and acts of the stock market - so much potential for disaster.

The last two connect well!

Love the build and the play on these three!

Thank you all! I'm glad I got these written before I left the hotel this morning. While I'm back on the ground in Oakland, my bag is still in transit and I am fried. Difficult week.

Got a little cheeky there on the last two but you are right they are perfect together.

Evey time I read your 3WWs I get so tempted to start writing them too. But am not sure I'll be able to pull it off.

Here's how tired I am.

I just clicked over - saw the haikus, and thought - oh, wow, it's Wednesday again already? What happened to Tuesday...

and then I realized it IS Tuesday.
Good Lord.
