haiku wednesday - October 28th, 2009

This week's words are

Egad! I missed two 3WW in a row. I am losing balance in my life. I must regain my balance, or I may fall off my chair. Incubate, nightmare, vanity? Sheesh, tough words for haiku. But here goes.

incubate ill will
with conquerors' vanity
endless nightmare war

please her vanity
with praise, incubate her trust
lies feed your nightmare

Swallow vanity!
They incubate your career,
those nightmare bosses.

But you always do so well with my challenges. I like the secodn one best as well.

You did a great job using the words in your haiku! I don't know if the first or the second is my favorite.

As always you pull perfection from the pen. I enjoyed each but the first one rang loudest for me. Good luck with Nanowrimo. After four years and three novels, I'm taking a break. LOL Probably. Although I did sign in just in case.

tough 3ww words but you use them well, I think number 3 is very relatable and good advice, and number 2 is very much something all spouses should learn to do now and than

I liked them all but the first was my favorite. I loved your comment on my story too :)
I am a nanowrimo newbie - this will be my first attempt.

Awesome job, as usual.

That balance thing is so precarious.

You did one! I thought maybe you'd gotten out of the habit, Pete.

For me, it's #2.
