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 paste 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.

This week's words:

Downhill; adverb: Toward the bottom of a slope; into a steadily worsening situation; adjective: leading down toward the bottom of a slope; leading to a steadily worsening situation; without difficulty or challenge.

Freak; noun: A very unusual and unexpected event or situation; )a person, animal, or plant with an unusual physical abnormality; a person who is obsessed with or unusually enthusiastic about a specified interest; verb: Behave or cause to behave in a wild and irrational way, typically because of the effects of extreme emotion, mental illness, or drugs.

Sliver; noun: A small, thin narrow piece of something cut or split off of a larger piece; verb: Cut or break (something) into small, thin, narrow pieces.

Something topical and political for this week's limerick.

Interesting words. Difficult words for a haiku, and my result was not a true haiku following the rules of nature imagery, but I'm not entirely dissatisfied.

Nice prompt words again, thank you.

How awkward... the link I used for my first entry went to LAST week's limerick. I've corrected it now. Thom, feel free to delete that one.

Got a little micro fiction piece up for the week.

Her life went downhill
in a spiral of colored pills.
Freaked out when she hit bottom
and saw her life through slivers of glass.

Republican freaks
lack a sliver of candor:
Politics a sham.
