Haiku Friday: Running Away

Here’s my haiku for today, on the topic of “running away”

when your dreams appear

full-fleshed, staring eye to eye

please don’t run away

It’s Haiku Friday again.  For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose.  I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog.  Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those).  That’s it.

One thought on “Haiku Friday: Running Away

  1. the topic was hard
    I nearly ran away from
    this Friday haiku

    running away is
    not the best way to resolve
    every crisis

    confronting my fears
    can work sometimes but there are
    times to run away

    the dark and evil
    always makes me run away
    instead of staying

    if nightmares, not dreams
    wake me and scare me near death
    then I run away!
