haiku wednesday - October 7th, 2009

This week's words are
fallow
limit
vocal

Last week I missed 3WW for the first time in nearly a year. I didn't actually count, but I figure I was on a 40-something streak. Well, a new streak begins today. (No, sorry, I am not "streaking" in that sense, at least not without sufficient incentive.)


mattress limit reached,
vocal girl leaves bed fallow
'twas a pea, princess


watchdogs lie fallow
rich men limit our freedoms
without vocal foes


limit subsidies
above fallow fields of corn
vocal birds riot

I kepyt checking, and now you're back. Good!

Fallow is one of those words i'd forgotten about. I love it - how it sounds like the feeling of what it is. Because of that, I like #3 best, followed quite closely by #1...
