Unwind and slow down

                          Soon tension evaporates

                               It is almost done



                 Sense of acceptance sets in

                         Exhale and relax

… and now onto some weird, whacky and sometimes wonderful words (courtesy of the dag’s dictionary), to put a smile on your dial…

Dresstitute – descriptive of a woman when she looks into her crowded wardrobe and realises she has nothing, absolutely nothing, to wear.

Four-wheel-drivel – the stream of excuses that four-wheel-drive owners now feel obliged to offer as explanation for why they own one, despite living in the city.

Nom de womb – a nickname for a baby while still in utero…

    The top two were definitely relaxing haiku. And I love that there were two definitions of relief!

    Love your definitions. Your first two haikus really resonated with me 🙂

  9. Jenn @ You know...that Blog? on February 11, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    All terrific haiku! Loved your definitions too, and may have stolen the first one to use on Facebook…

      @Margaret ~ Your guess is as good as mine. LOL Actually,  it's part of the destressing process

      @Sarah ~ Thanks for the thumbs-up 🙂

      @Jenn ~ That definition is a classic, isn't it? Thanks for hosting.
