My Words - Simple and Straight..



Written for 3WW and Sensational Haiku Wednesday

First 3ww...
Prompts: Mob, Jettison, Behave


My Words - Simple and Straight


My words have always
Behaved pretty nice and well,
Kept themselves simple
Never jettisoned humility
In spite of getting mobbed
By some atrocious thoughts
Of embellishment
Have never played
Against the rule or slipped
They do fear getting caught
And face a long sentence
My words – simple and straight
Say, I'll keep them that way...

Also  Wrtitten for Sensational Haiku Wednesday



Silence of trees
A quieter morning 
Absence of wind

  12. The three lines of the haiku seem to be saying the same thing. Compare

    waking alone . . .
    the silence
    of the trees
