Haiku Monday Winner: Resolution

Howdy, folks.

Unfortunately, this round up and winner announcement is going to have to be short and sweet. Internet's been out most of the day and I've got a bunch of stuff to catch up on. Thanks to all who resolved to play—and did!

Here are my top three out of the bunch:

Chickory, with:

The whiskey river
flows from New Years eve into
Lake Reformation

No kidding, right? This reminds me of one of my favorite songs.

Czar's pitch-perfect mix of humor and despair:

Making and breaking
Daily. Veneer together;
Insides collapsing.

Which reminds me of another favorite song.

And, finally, Grumpy Granny's

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

Which also happens to be this week's WINNER. And not because it reminds me of the theme song to Rocky, which I happen to think is pretty sucky. I like it because it's such a compact and vivid execution of the theme, and something with which I can personally relate.

Thanks to all who played and congrats, Grumpy Granny! I hope you "resolve" to host a whole new theme in the New Year!

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!

Haiku Monday: Class

This week's host, Señor Karl (aka: the most interesting man in the world), has come up with a fun topic for what I'm beginning to think is one of the longest running Blogger memes in the history of the universe. So drop by his place to chime in on the topic of CLASS.

* * * 

Youth’s sartorial
slips forgiven. At fifty?
Girl, put it away.

If you still got it, at least flaunt it with some . . . class

Haiku Monday: Pretend

Is it that time again? Sheesh, where did the week go?

This go round Miss Fleurdeleo is hosting Haiku Monday over at her place, with a theme of PRETEND.

Drop by, por favor, and play.

Wee-billed grey-winged bard
trills brethrens’ symphonies. Mock?
No, that’s flattery.
