Haiku Challenge for Nov. 16: ‘Kneel’

Come on, I can’t hear “kneel” and not hear this.

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

kneel before zod, right?
my zod is depression, and
I do as I’m told.

kneel at your altar;
turns out it’s made of plastic
and bends under fire.

kneeling here for hours,
making friends with the dirt and
worms on my kneecaps.

the tree kneels before
a howling wind, with the moon
hiding behind clouds.

buds kneel like soldiers
to their superiors when
biting a lemon.

my own shadow kneels
to the pain emanating
from my draining pores.

the boy and his rod
kneel to catch river’s fish, not
noticing danger.

a life spent kneeling
for what could be instead of
standing for what is.

the depression kneel
is unseen since it’s in the
bed under covers.

anxiety kneel
like a haywire compass with
no clear direction.
