809 - Sundry Haikus

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: filth, addicted, and defiant.




Haiku 1.

We choose what offends—
One’s muck is another’s cream.
Filth is subjective.

◊◊◊



Haiku 2.

Addicted to gods;
Faith in fairies and voodoo—
Why do we need them?

◊◊◊



Haiku 3.

He stands defiant,
Denying the obvious—
The rich coal miner.

  5. I feel that there is more addiction to goods than to gods alas.. But maybe it's still the purpose of those divine beings.

  7. All three are dope... the 2nd. I often wonder, tho I believe in a God, that belief doesn't rule my life and way of living.

  9. Delightful and true! We deny our truths and affirm our wrong choices. This is most surely the cream of haiku!
