3WW CCLIV

Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.
Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and past it to Mr. Linky below). As  always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

But I invite everyone to check back often to read and  comment on other contributions. This is, after all, a community for writers who clamor for feedback.
 
(Program note: I am in the process of packing and moving 3WW to Wyoming and will be pretty quiet as far as dropping by your contributions. I apologize in advance.)
 
This week's words:
 
Gasp; verb: Inhale suddenly with the mouth open, out of pain or astonishment; strain to take a deep breath; noun: A convulsive catching of breath.

Mute; adjective: Refraining from speech or temporarily speechless; not expressed in speech; characterized by an absence of sound, quiet; noun: A person without the power of speech; verb: Deaden, muffle or soften the sound of; reduce the strength or intensity of (something).

Viable; adjective: Capable of working successfully, feasible.

Thanks for the inspiration. I've written five haiku, the second of which uses your three words: Sundry Haiku

I really struggled with the word viable for some reason. It ended up a little something for fun!

These seem to come around so quickly and I really enjoy taking part in them and reading others who are taking part in it too.
Thank you.

Not exactly the happiest story I've ever written... good words as always though!

While I have used some humor in this setting, the conflict between musicians at rehearsal is potentially ever present, at least beneath the surface of a well-run session and can erupt easily.
