your haiku

I know there's the neverending haiku thread, but I wanted to make another thread, simply to post your own haiku.

haiku are sometimes kept to a seventeen syllable limit, but these don't have to be, but they obviously can't be too long!

A spider sits
in meditation
upon the window

A fly thrashes at the window
the cat
is fixated

I had to add this, Kerouac has some brilliant haiku
"Bee, why are you staring at me
I'm not a flower"-Jack Kerouac

Autumn scented leaves
tobacco wafting past me
into Kensington

Caustic cordite smell.
I see the leaves iced in webs;
Dew after fireworks.

Talking to chat bots
Cold and lonely winter night-
Echoing my words.

I write azure skies
from a dark and dreary room
birds soar from my lines
The Anointed

I sit at my desk
Composing poems for my wife
The love of my life.

angle lit by the sun
for cat to lie and slumber
until called for food

Don't walk behind me
Because I will never lead
I'll still be your friend

Walk in front of me
And I will not follow you
I'll still be your friend

But walk beside me
Hand and hand toward the end
And WE will be friends.
