Haiku kind of day

Today in second grade English, the students were writing haiku poems. This little haiku refresher has unleashed some creative energies in me on this strange Tuesday evening. If you want to share some of your haiku's, please add them as a comment at the end of this post. :) (The basic structure for a haiku is 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables, and the haiku's are usually but not always related to topics in nature.)

Lonely, staring out,
She sifts through all the answers
And finds life obscure.

Tailing up the tree
He gaunt eyes stare back at me
I stole his dried corn.

Sleet and trains on tracks
Empty, metal promises
that ting through the night.

The pattern demands
Thought beyond ordinary
We like all of them.

This one is from Lauren:

Haikus can be fun
But sometimes they don't make sense
