Respond in Haiku

This side of the forums is so quiet it makes me sad! So, I wanted to maybe bring some life to the Library by starting something new.

A group that I used to be a part of on Deviantart started up a journal where everyone would respond in haiku, trying to add on to the previous part. I found this was a fun exercise and got my brain really trying to think, especially with how a haiku is formatted!

For those that don't know, a haiku has a fairly strict format. 3 lines, and a count of 5 syllables in the first and last line, and 7 in the second.

So yeah, I'll get this started!
Lost
My heart is racing,
my body falling behind,
but my mind is dead.





If you have trouble counting syllables here is a handy dandy syllable counter site that I found!

Also, lets try to keep the haikus in a fieldset box! I feel that will make it a bit easier to find them as the posts move on.

Feelings flutter by,
or race 'round like bumble bees
Leave me feeling numb

please try to use the Fieldset when responding so we can keep it straight~

Thank you so much for playing along
A Hug
The numbness holds me,
like a suffocating hug,
it's hard to breathe.

not gonna lie, kinda bummed you made that into a haiku.

Open gaming is a bit of an odd place to have a haiku game, but I can roll with it. Looks like it's been going on for a bit!

Continued
Let this continue,
the fun can be had here too,
on this tiny thread

so small as it stands
but with dreams and ambitions

I wished for more once
A small thing in a large place
Watching the world pass

A simple respite
From a hectic existence
Here we can just be

We Are But Nails
What you say is true
This place is our safe haven
When life's hammer falls

But what else? What else?
We are kin, but beyond this
What are we, ourselves?

leaves
Like leaves of a tree
Together yet still apart
Tumble falling down

Fall, but also rise;
We blink out of existence
Then return renewed

Strange days are now here
Isolation the new norm
I was made for this

I'm serving up to
Eighty customers a day
My colleague falls ill

They say she's being
Tested for COVID-19
And I'm feeling ill

My mom's 82
And she has COPD
Much anxiety

Happy children, though
