3WW (CXXVIII) entries

Image of a pond of eyes, at night; a public art installation outside the Sha Tin Town Hall in Sha Tin, Hong Kong.Dear Gentle Reader,

It's 3WW time again.

A chance to discover the world through different eyes, when you discover how others have used the same words.

(There are talented prose and poetry writers who play 3WW... I know my place, it's not with them. But, I enjoy reading what they have crafted.)

This week the three word prompts are cajole, recluse, and temper.

I wish you all the best of luck. It's haiku time for me.

Tschuess,
Chris



WHEN THE BREVIARY OF FAITH, OR SIN, IS WRONGLY READ

Temptation cajoled...
with tempered blade the recluse
expurgated rot.




IN FLAGRANTE DELICTO; CRIME OF PASSION
PART ONE: THE ACTOR

His vows? Reclusive.
Fled. Cajoled by lust to go.
Passion tempered naught.



IN FLAGRANTE DELICTO; CRIME OF PASSION
PART TWO: THE AUDIENCE

Reason? Reclusive.
Fled, cajoled by revenge and
delicious temper.



IN FLAGRANTE DELICTO; CRIME OF PASSION
PART THREE: THE END

Him: Recluse in grave.
Her: Not cajoled--cuffed, forced, gone.
Her: No temper. Dead.




IF THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD,
FIND THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB
(a.k.a. SEEKING NIHONTO NIB FOR AN INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST)

cajole reclusive
Sensei to forge and temper
one folded steel nib




BECAUSE WE DON'T WANT THIS MAN JUDGED BY A JURY OF HIS PEERS...


"Recuse this recluse..."
Cajoled the attorney
"His temper... He's ill..."

I like the ninja one! Go sensei! These are cool especially the part one and two and so on. You don't give yourself enough credit-good haiku is hard to find!

These were all very clever...I especially loved 'recuse the recluse'!
