haiku wednesday - July 15, 2009

This week's words are
drip
hypnotic
sulk

Although I didn't have a very difficult time with the words this week, "sulk" was a reluctant participant. Plus, that's one of those words that sounds funny if you say it a lot. Sulk. Sulk. Sulk. sulk sulk sulk sulk. See? (Aloof is also one of those words.)



high clouds sulk, aloof
hypnotic waves smooth lake's sand
tears drip from willow


your wine-sulk bores me
hypnotic gyrations lure
I melt, drip in pools


it's hypnotic--gross!
that drip hanging from your nose
is your sulk done yet?

I like the first one but didn't really care to picture someone with a runny nose - still I am always amaze how you can come up with such haikus

Great - you did it AGAIN! I love the reference to weeping willow in the first, the seduction in the second and the plea of the third!

Stan Ski said...

Every one a winner!

Nice trio :) third one is as funny as it is gross!

Great use of the words in all three of them!

Very nice, especially the first one, although I found "wine-sulk" pretty captivating, too.

Eek - our landlord (when I was a kid) always had a drip on the end of his nose - and he was a BAKER! Did you have to remind me of that?!
