Haiku Challenge for Aug. 20: ‘Week’

Today’s haiku challenge:

My style is the five/seven/five syllable structure. Here are my 10 haiku poems:

Another week goes
by without a word from her.
What once was is not.

Surviving the week
always seems impossible
until it happens.

Every week was weak,
crawling along to get by,
then rinse and repeat.

Sleeping for a week
would be rejuvenating.
But add more weeks, too.

Take a week off from
the thinking and memories.
Give me a reprieve.

Week-long vacation
from himself. His brain was fried,
but still kept going.

The days of the week
get shorter during winter.
Darkness finds a home.

He likes when it gets
darker during the fall and
winter weeks. His friend.

The bees could spend a
week preparing the nectar
for us to take it.

Lions can almost
go a week without water,
but need meat each day.
