Haiku Challenge for Sept. 5: ‘Year’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

year after year, we
drift apart like two buoys
lost at sea, floating.

we thought this year would
be different, a new start.
But same old, same old.

a year without you
is unimaginable.
And yet, here we are.

A relationship
measured in daily moments
becomes yearly ones.

Another year old,
“Get busy livin’ or get
busy dyin’.” Tired.

I’m busy dying
Year after year of dying,
and dying to die.

Depression makes a
year compressed into a day,
and exhausting you.

There once was a time
where the earth lost the sun’s glow
for a year: darkness.

The bee lived for a
year; he was happy buzzing
doing what bees do.

The lion made it
a year, and happy to get
another to sleep.
