Haiku Monday: RESOLUTION

Hello all! Señor Karl somehow saw fit to bestow upon me the win for last week's HM. Given that both Christmas and New Year's fall so close to Monday for the next couple weeks, I think this will probably be our last meme of 2012. So I thought the theme of RESOLUTION would be appropriate.

The usual rules apply: 5-7-5, season reference optional, visuals nice but not required. Drop your 'kus in this post's comment box on or before midnight PST on Monday, December 18th. I'll announce a winner that Tuesday or Wednesday.

Good luck!

here are my entries

empty words spoken
fall dead as leaves from a tree
this time I promise

promises one makes
by morning light forgotten
resolutions suck

I'm up with visuals. Two this week:

The Way beckons on,
Sore foot blocks pilgrim’s resolve.
One day, I’ll return.

Resolved in New Year,
Nine months to train, escape planned.
One hour victory.

Gym memberships rise
with promise of a New Year.
Gone by Valentine's.

Making and breaking
Daily. Veneer together;
Insides collapsing.

Good stuff, folks. Thank you!

Seasonal theme Moi, but since I don't do once a year resolutions, I went a different direction.

Happy HM, everyone.

Ten more steps to tree;
I’ll stop up at that rock, “Phew!”
Packing winter’s meat.

Coworkers harass
to join illegal action.
They’ll never break me.

Serendipity

Battle ropes, treadmill
Personal trainer in house
Extra pounds must go


That's just off the top of my head ...
no visuals or anything.
I'll try and be back later with another.

Good luck to all! :D

Good evening Moi,

Howdy all.

Societies wane
Cultures winter of demise
Virtue holds high ground

Be compassionate
Still try as I may, not PC
Goldbrick butt meets boot

@ Boxer: The last of the migration as the February flyers leave.

Congrats again, Moi! Hi, all!

Visual up and:

Somnolent seedling
labors through April's chilled berth;
courted by the sun.
