Today’s haiku challenge:

This is actually a repeat of one done on Oct. 7. You can read the first version here.

My style is the five/seven/five syllable structure. Here are is my second version of this prompt:

end, one syllable
spoken with finality,
contains multitudes.

nothing ever ends;
there’s only new beginnings —
blades of grass anew.

living with end stage
disease of the mind, minding
my business ’til death.

end my suffering —
scatter my ashes like a
daisy drifting home.

how did we end up
here? sailing away on this
blue rock all alone?

depression end blues:
wailing a tune to the room
absorbed by the walls.

depression end blues:
attending group session with
me, myself, and I.

depression end blues:
swimming in a water bed
without the water.

end pain recipe:
depression Novocaine to
get that numb coating.

sun decides to end
it all, dips into the dark
sea until morning.
