Poem-a-Day 2016 Writer’s Digest Challenge #17. Theme: Haiku (or a poem about a haiku)

Virtuous Sins:  In Haiku

10

Lust

Spark that ignites an
unquenchable thirst for wife—
gift given by God.

Greed

Better provider
for family, willing not
to settle for less.

Sloth

Working smarter, not
harder, saving energy
for more pressing things.

Gluttony

Waste not, vanity
free, more to love, no
anorexia.

Pride

In herself, her home,
and family—all for the
good of those she loves.

Envy

Catalyst for self-
improvement, comparison
to others a map.

Wrath

Righteous for a cause—
raging against injustice,
and other evils.
