Life is a Haiku

I've been attempting haiku writing off late...inspired while reading Kerouac's Dharma Bums mostly. Some crude attempts below (all are not technically correct).

Happiness-

meditating
under bodhi tree;
writing haiku poetry

the inane brings
sublime joy;
kills mundane

yellow wildflowers
sing in autumn;
riverside blues

Depression -

need that love
in you;
i sink

thanks for the drink
tonite;
i die

i fall into
the abyss;
rising from within

waves of melancholy
rising and falling;
time stands still

feel so gone
at my age;
i need - a drink, a good meal, dessert, deep inane silly conversation, love. besame mucho. s'il vous plait.


Random -

bored
on my workstation;
coffee spills

she fills the blanks
of an excel sheet;
colored boxes

Nice to see people (some I know, some I don't) actually utilizing their time in doing something constructive while I laze around, watching videos on youtube and other such mundane tasks
