Haiku Challenge for Sept. 2: ‘Over’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

over was a word
with two syllables able
to demolish me.

“It’s over,” you said,
setting off a silent bomb,
a new surreal life.

over there where the
bees hang out in their beehive —
where I want to be.

over there where the
bears take a dip in water —
where I want to be.

over there where the
lions yawn, full for the day —
where I want to be.

over there where the
birds fly anywhere they want —
where I want to be.

over there where the
trees stand at shaking their leaves —
where I want to be.

over there where the
darkness breathes with new daring —
where I want to be.

over there where the
numbness begins, inviting —
where I want to be.

over there where the
welcome mat is, warts and all —
where I want to be.
