(I attempt at haiku)

I pause from pithy
prose and my dry doggerel
to write bad haiku
——–

Ages pass it seems
until the one asks you how
you have felt lately
———

A jaundiced moon beamed
down on old 101
and she rode with me
———-

I watched her recede
and walk away out of sight
the sun was way harsh
———–

Mid happy chatter
I rise for a quick breath
of isolation
———–

Thought that burns right through
the fabric of a subject
like a cigarette

    ha, jaundiced indeed it was last night! Cute and playful haiku.

    The last one is the best.

    pregnant pause.

    so natural at it
    he needs not try hard
    it comes from within

    Thanks all.
    I was going for the 5-7-5 syllable rule, which I understand from some more look-up, is not necessary.

    “Ashes of a mind
    lay scattered
    by uncertainty”
