Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Haiku Wednesday - Freestyle

No particular theme today - open to imagination or flights of fancy.


Words in Haiku

I
Styled grouping of words
Arranged in set syllables:
Five, seven and five.

II
Verbal origami:
Meanings captured in folded
Groups of syllables.

III
Spoken in anger,
Strings of hostile words that hurt:
Bad comparisons.

IV
Flights of fancy, words
Taking wing, soaring, floating
For such a short trip.


Join the fun!
