Grimace : Haiku

Perfection she
Sip of coffee, Grimaces I see
Problem, for me?


*********************************


Still some pages to go              
Acknowledgements I see
Why so fast did I read?



***************************************



That boastful neighbor
My child would top and she would see
Ah, her results 


 *********************************************


With oozing wounds        
Grimace on the face
Yet he ran to finish the race




This post is shared with Haiku Heights # 317 and the prompt is GRIMACE

  10. Nice. I liked the last one best (and was going to say that even before I just noticed that Kathy said it too). I have mixed feelings about rhymes in haiku- case by case thing, and in this case along with the content it works really well.
