Mum’s The 3 Words

I love 3 Word Wednesday! Just like last week, it presents three words to be used in a poem, and a haiku immediately writes itself in the word order presented.  Weird, huh?

This week’s words are button, luck, and pretend:

Button up your lips
And, with luck, we can pretend
This never happened.

    Clever and definitely relatable. It leads to so many possible thoughts of what we’re pretending never happened :)

    Hope you have a wonderful 2008. We get an extra day this year, ya know!
