Haiku Challenge for Oct. 10: ‘Perfection’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

perfection sat in
a glass inside the china
cabinet, sparkling.

perfection puddle:
I step in, reflecting my
insecurities.

perfect orbit,
earthbound depression, standing
still on the axis.

perfection cupped in
my hand — sleight-of-hand magic —
gone, if ever there.

my perfection teems
beneath the surface, a swarm
just waiting to fly.

perfection’s breath burns
on my skin, luring me in
promising fortunes.

perfection, a fool’s
errand; I run with a smile,
not seeing the hole.

perfection kisses
me at night in my dreams, and
I wake forgetful.

perfection is the
underside of a dumpster,
but at least they roll.

perfection drains me,
swirling to the bottom, and
slurping me back up.
