One Minute

Park bench. Break from work.
For one minute I have all
the time in the world.

Awesome! Official writing forum hot topic! I'm glad I got it started.

This one is called A Time Once Taken For Granted...

Mem'ries slip and skew.
However it was back then,
wish we could return.

Sitting by the lamp,
a somber book's my only

Bagging Groceries

Eight hours: the store
in my hands. Skin stretches tight

As you probably figured out from my recent haikus, I had long shifts at work the past two days. Today's my day off, so how 'bout a more uplifting poem, eh?

Darkness

If you stay in the
dark for long enough, you'll see
that there is still light.

Masturbation

I saw a future
in the land of lies: I made
a promise to her.

0_O Maybe that one was a little too personal...oh well.

Here's making up for one of my missed days...especially since my haiku yesterday was lazy.

Facing Fears

When I arrive here,
I can't tell if my legs are
just weak or broken.

The greatest of strengths

Thanks! :D I don't think there's really any proper way to interpret anything, especially a short poem written by a high school-age kid in 90 seconds. XD I was sort of thinking about how sex requires some sort of devotion, whereas masturbation is solely for selfish personal pleasure. Masturbation simply creates false expectations of a fantasized partner, especially when pornography is involved. That's why I mention the "land of lies." The goal of masturbatory fantasies is, in a way, to create a feigned sense of mutual devotion. Anyway, interpret it however you want, though. XD


my haiku yesterday was lazy.

I didn't think it was that lazy...just clever and amusing! ;)

Idol

Frozen in a past
cracked with burden; honored
with time and dust mites.

The book sinks into

Sign in Blood

For the world had grown
to neglect what He would save.
Forgiveness remains.

I'm not really religious...but religion sure is worth writing plenty of haikus about, eh? :)

I don't know why you would think that, because in my mind, such a thought like your last sentence needs explanation for me. Not that I'm condemning you or anything, I respect you -- it just strikes me as strange.

Anyway, being religious myself:

When alone in bed,
I hear His distinct voice -- "Child,
Sleep in peace and light."

I agree. I can say the same for myself; I'm not religious, however I know of the impact it has on many lives and I think something as ancient and influential as it is deserves to be written about, drawn, sung about, etcetera. With that being said, I suppose it's Religion Day here in the Haiku a Day thread, so let's go :p

Being the Bigger Person May Come Off a Tad Egotistical (hoorray for titles that are also haikus!! controversial though they may be...)

A fierce slap, met with,
“Thanks, may I have another?”
The other cheek turned…

Haha! That one was good! :D

Interesting how the religious people here find it strange that I find value in writing about religion (given that I'm not religious), while the non-religious people perfectly understand! XD I definitely WAS NOT trying to disrespect anyone, btw. I just think religion is really interesting, and it's definitely worth telling a story about. After all, The Bible is easily the best-selling book of all time.

Anyway, haiku incoming:

Morning Jog

I suddenly stop,
body leaping ahead of
itself. Finish line.
