Haiku Challenge for Oct. 25: ‘Clean’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

clean me of debris;
my memories cling to me
and won’t let me go.

clean my soul for me,
it’s buried deep within, and
I can’t reach it now.

deep depression clean:
due to unclean grime stuck on
you, and festering.

deep depression clean:
scrubbing myself of myself;
naked and reborn.

deep anxiety
clean: must get every surface
until I’m spotless.

nobody’s hands are
clean in a dirty world, but
we can still atone.

can you clean me with
a sandpaper sponge? renew
the spoiled flesh here.

clean away today
to make tomorrow more fresh
and the past distant.

dark cloud cleans me with
purple rain in my eyeballs
until they’re flooded.

my bee clean: puncture
wounds from their stingers cover
my flesh to nourish.
