haiku wednesday - August 5, 2009

This week's words are
accentuate
glamour
pitch

Just back from four gorgeous days in Tahoe. Great fun camping with my boys and my big brother. Nice to get a few days away from crazy work, but it means all the crazy work piled up in my inbox. Egads. This week's haikus pay homage to politics, pop tarts, and college softball players. Not necessarily all at once.



When you make your pitch,
accentuate the glamour
and downplay the slime.


those who love glamour
accentuate little things
and pitch righteous fits


diamond's glamour babe--
accentuate smile, strikeouts
mascara fast-pitch

Very clever--all of them. But the last required a re-read and a re-smile.
