Haiku Challenge for Aug. 24: ‘Sneak’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

i sneaked out of life,
refusing to play its game.
i’m existential.

i sneaked out of life,
reality too hard to
take — exit stage left.

i sneaked out of life,
taking the road to nowhere
was better than here.

i sneaked out of life,
a life now unrequited,
essentially exit.

i sneaked out of life,
‘being’ was impossible;
nothing essential.

the bee sneaked
around the flower with its
familiar love dance.

The lion sneaked up
on unsuspecting zebras.
Premeditation.

the moon sneaked up on
the horizon, shining bright.
A friend to darkness.

books sneaked up on the
bookshelves, one by one, until
there were too many.

she didn’t sneak out,
more like a blunt object to
the head; lifeless now.
