3WW (CXXVIII) entries

Image of two models on the street in Cambodia, one in a short dress, one in a short skirt, one with a Santa Claus hat on.Dear Gentle Reader,

I just returned from China, but here are my 3WW haiku before I lay down to rest...

This week the words are burden, natural, and ubiquitous.


Tschuess, Chris




HUNGRY HUNTER'S THOUGHTS...


Ubiquitous birds
hide in natural cover,
burden hand better.




WHAT CIVIL CRIMINAL LAW BELIEVES AND COMMON CRIMINAL LAW DOES NOT


Ubiquitous thief!
Natural burden of proof
should fall on you, no?




WHAT CAME FIRST (THE CHICKEN OR THE EGG)? A.K.A. HOW DO WE MANIPULATE THOUGHTS IF WE HAVE NOTHING TO THINK ABOUT?


Tabula rasa.
A ubiquitous burden
to natural minds.




Finally, a naisaiku...


Natural beauty
ubiquitous onanist...
burdens wipes supplies
THAT LOVE THAT DARE NOT SPEAK IT'S NAME
burdens wipes supplies
ubiquitous onanist...
Natural beauty

burden hand better than tuna bush

Great work. Love every one.

ThomG said...

As do I.

(Oh, I appreciate your comments about the book, I surly do. I'm trying to figure out a way to make that very thing come true, whether I start getting the stories in literary journals, or go to a couple of publishers with 20-odd stories. We'll see.)

Timely & Terrific, Scribe Chris; particularly considering your travels! (I missed a post on Tue, but explain Thurs.)
So you went Mainland, Eh? We know about that. Good you came home, Bruddah. Aloha-

Hello PJD,

Love your response.

Hello ThomG,

Thanks. Surely or surly? Surely not surly... I say small book...

Hello Tan,

Cheers! I tried not using it and I received copious spam comments that I had to delete...

Hello Tumblewords,

I blush.

Hello Cloudia,

I blush some more.

Hello Prettyme,

I am very pleased! Thanks!

Tschuess,
Chris

May I ask what time of year it is in Hong Kong? Is it still Christmas there or do mannequins wear santa hats year round as tradition?

Sepiru Chris said...

Hello Heidelweiss,

That photo was actually taken in Cambodia, in December of last year.

It's spring here in Hong Kong. That means a balmy 24°C (a bit more than 75°F) and 84% relative humidity right now at 11:15 pm.

But, back to the Santa hat.

(Interesting, the vanishing point from my perspective is farther south...)

So, the Santa hat might have been considered normal when that photo was taken in December.

Except that the clothing market in Phnom Penh where I took that photo was in a total locals only, Cambodian enclave--and Cambodians, generally, are not Christian so they do not celebrate Christmas.

And, these were the only Santa mannequins that I saw. (Well, there were more, but they were all at the same store.)

My attention was drawn to the economy of fabric, though.

There was only so much fabric, apparently, per model.

So, the more the models wore on their head, the less they could wear lower on their torsos.

If this is a fashion rule I was hitherto unaware of, I shall become an unabashed and vocal advocate of increased headgear for women. And gloves, too.

:)

Tschuess,
Chris

pleasure to read all!

holding on

susan said...

Enjoyed. The fist is my favorite.

Jeeves said...

Hunter one is my favourite.

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

Very clever. I wish I could do so much with so few words!

Sepiru Chris said...

Gautami,

Thank you.

Susan,

Thank you so much.

Jeeves,

I quite like that one too, I liked using burden that way.

Ann,

But you do, you do.

Tschuess,
Chris

Angel said...

I like the first one best this time! Love that you do more than one with the words each week.

lissa said...

I like the first one the best, but the others are interesting interpretations, though the last one's unexpected, all of them nicely done

SweetTalkingGuy said...

Hi Chris, some big words here and I had to look them up to make sure I was reading you right - you will of course be familiar with the term 'merchant banker'.

Fun post!

thoughtful commentary reflected in ku.. i had to laugh, had to smile, everything writing should be...

Sepiru Chris said...

Angel,

First one was fun for me, too.

lissa,

Cheers Lissa. They just pop out in the small window of time I allow myself; there is no time to edit for content. :)

SweetTalkingGuy,

Cheers, STG. And I don't believe that you had to look any words up. I have read your posts. Your verbal prestidigitation is as quick and elegant as anyone's. More so than many, in fact.

one more believer,

How very sweet of you to say! Welcome here, come back anytime!

Tschuess,
Chris
