Some classics I posted back in the day at MZO....

 

Tree falls in forest

No one is around to hear

+1 for BigDork

 

Spam spam spam spam spam

Spam spam spam spam spam spam spam

Spam spam spam spam spam

 

My haiku is quick

Creative juices flowing

Spam flying all over

 

(The next few are from the 'I Hated My Job' collection)

Forever today

The clock on the wall sits still

Forever at work

 

Tick tock tick tock tick

Time moves at a snail's pace

The snail is dead

The syllables are:

Five in the first line, and then:

Seven, and then five.

 

No rhymes, no reason,

Evocative if possible.

I like the dead snail. :nod:

Here's some of mine posted there [when I was still working in the U.S.]

 

Paperwork slithers,

Foul and vile, across my desk.

Why doesn't it die!?

 

A stolen moment.

A silent dab of sweet joy.

Scribbling more haiku.

 

Chained to desk and chair.

Flogged raw with stupidity.

Dreaming of escape.

 

Gray skies hang quite low.

Icy rain hurls down from above.

Folks shiver and cough.

 

Gray, damp clouds hang low,

Impaled upon skyscrapers.

Their tears wet the streets.

 

Far away, dawn breaks.

Turquoise seas purr, white with foam.

Soaring seabirds laugh.

Feeling obsolete

The circle of life moves on

I love cheap pizza, :)

Glist'ning globs of greasy meat.

The obscene cuisine! :D

Last night coming home from Tagbilaran, breathtaking sights inspired two haiku:

 

Low, indigo clouds

Iridescent pink above

Dying turquoise sky.

 

An apricot moon

Hangs in the stygian sky.

Moonbeams dance on waves.

4 in the morning

I should be snoring loudly

But instead I write.
