haiku wednesday - November 4th, 2009

This week's words are
karma
obey
wither

I was psyched when I saw three short words this week. Only six syllables, giving me eleven all to myself! Well, guess what? This is a really tough trio. I'm not sure why. I think it's because karma is very specific, and obey and wither are both verbs... neither of which karma can really do or have done to it. Plus, this being NaNoWriMo, I am distracted and funneling my creative energy elsewhere. But here goes anyway.


grow, age, wither, die
leave all but karma behind
obey life's cycles


make your own karma
don't wither under pressure
but, obey your mom!


they obey conscience
bodies wither, karma soars
prison hunger strike

Thom is right. These were all good.

Good luck with NaNo. I'm plugging right along with it, keeping on pace. Turns out that 3WW and reading other people's work was a great shot in the arm.

Yeah. Shorter is not always easier. But you do so well with these.

Short is tough. For everyone but you! :) Good luck with Nanowrimo.
