Haiku Challenge for Sept. 1: ‘Bend’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

I will bend to your
will, as always, ready to
be present for you.

depression bends me
to its will, which is nothing.
To bask in the void.

anxiety bends
everything; it’s cerebral,
everything clusters.

“bend over backwards,”
they say, for the one you love.
she doesn’t notice.

If you bend in the
void, nothing seems as it is,
which is the desire.

Book bends upside down,
waiting for me to pick it
up again, patient.

the flower bends to
the bee’s will, ready to take
the latest pollen.

the bear bends the tree
trying to get to me, as
I scurry away.

the lion bends … well,
every animal to its
will as rightful king.

bend moon a little,
so I can experience
the glow one last time.
