haiku wednesday - the new year's hangover edition

This week's words are plausible, taint, willingly

There's nothing romantic whatsoever about the word plausible.


they die, willingly
blood and tears taint the desert
threats seemed plausible


plausible future
our histories taint the night
willingly you come


willingly, I fear
don't taint my world view with facts
plausible or not

The first of today's three haiku is my favorite. Strong. Evocative. Relevant.

So glad to have you back with 3WW. I think, for some tough words, you've done such a great job with these.

Thanks, y'all! I am off to see what you wrote today, if I can break away from Day Job a little bit here and there. (Maybe tonight.)

plausible has never been said to me romanticly either! Sorry, I haven't stopped by lately. It's always fun to have 3ww words playfully done with your haikus. I am always impressed with the way you make them work, it's very smart and I envy it a little. I like a short story but it's rare I can make it haiku short. :)
