Heard of a 'haiku'?

Wordsmith, the home of A.Word.A.Day newsletter, celebrates 17 years, and featured five 17-letter words this week. To further mark the milestone, subscribers were invited to take part in a haiku contest - send in a haiku to define or illustrate each of these 17 letter words. (What is a haiku?)
My entries -

predestinarianism
My will or your will
Have no doubt - it is His will
that has the last word!


triskaidekaphobia
Did thirteen say Boo?
Will you fear an extra loaf
in a baker’s doz


contradistinguish
At either end of
V I B G Y O R
reside Black and white


laryngopharyngeal
Out comes noise or sound
while air water and food go
their ways - up or down!


perspicaciousness
See, observe details
read not only ‘tween the lines -
but also letters


That exercise was enjoyable. And I continue to look forward Wordsmith's daily doses sent to a million+ linguaphiles.
