Haiku Sticky #135

I generally try to adjust my word choice so that the haiku, or, in this case, the senryu, can appear in three lines. However, I find the word "chitchat" perfect for this type of conversation. I could have used "gossip," but the feeling is not the same. What do you think? Would "gossip" have worked as well for you?


  1. Absolutely no. It must be chitchat, a most fitting word!

  2. Thanks Jenny the P, I'm glad you agree! (Ooo, that rhymes!)

  3. I agree, chitchat is lighter, gossip implies meanness & this is just that, chitchat. Fits the time well too.
