Unusual Language

I am so excited that I came in 2nd with this post for Trifecta!!  My first time winning on there, and I’m honored.
Now on to this weekend’s challenge. 

HAIKU (noun)

: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively

Searching for perfect
words, unlike any ever written.
Longing to stand out.

  1. I think you hit the nail on the head with that one. It is hard to stand out when 100 people respond to the same prompt. And yet, most of the time, everyone does find their own little place, don't they? Thanks for linking up. And congrats on your win!

  2. Tell me about it…!
    Congrats on the silver : )

  3. Such an insightful and perfectly-worded haiku.

  4. That is the point, isn't it!

  5. Striving for the perfect word and syllable count… nicely done!

  6. That's what we all strive for, isn't it?!
    Congratulations 🙂

  7. Congratulations on your win!

    This is true. I doubt any of us would be content blending in with the crowd.

  8. That's what we all want–to be noticed. Great job!

  9. I believe that's what most people want whether they write or not, just to stand out, their voices be heard.

  10. Thank you very much. I guess that's what every writer wants.

  11. It is actually very hard. I'm not used to writing haiku but I like to try every now and again.

    aren't we all looking to stand out

    love the angst

  13. I do think this is exactly what we were all thinking… Good one!

  14. Congrats on your 2nd place this week. You deserve it. A great poem. And your haiku/senryu speaks to us all… longing to stand out.

  15. Ah… yes uniqueness in haiku is so difficult…
