Word of the Day Haiku Challenge 3

This week we have Haiku inspired by two Words of the Day. Let’s take a look back at Tuesday and Friday!

Tuesday’s Word of the Day from Dictionary.com: Isonomy – noun. Equality of political rights

Your isonomy
is very important now
with elections soon.

Friday’s Word of the Day from Dictionary.com: Psittacism – noun. mechanical, repetitive, and meaningless speech.

Some psittacisms
like a Mother’s do”s and don’t’s,
haunt the guilty.

Smug bible thumpers
drone vapid psittacisms…
Actions speak louder.

Catchy talking points,
When fools use psittacisms,
There is no debate!

If you would like to join us this week, here are the rules! 😊

Word of the Day Haiku Challenge

1. Pick a day that works for you. Once you pick your day, stick to it. This is what makes it fun and quite a challenge.

2. Choose an online dictionary that features a word of the day. I use dictionary.com but there are others. Pick your go-to dictionary.

3. Create a Haiku using the word of the day. In this challenge, no synonyms allowed.

4. A Haiku is a three line poem with the syllable structures 3-5-3 or 5-7-5.

5. (Optional) If you want, you may also post a expanded history of the word, your thoughts about the word, or some unusual facts about the word of the day.

6. Post a link to your Haiku in the comments so I can find you.

7. I’ll post the weekly roll call list on Sunday. So you have until Saturday at midnight (EST) to post your haiku.

8. Have fun!
