Haiku Challenge for Nov. 19: ‘Rest’

Today’s haiku challenge:

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

ain’t no rest for the
wicked, they say, but I’ve been
napping peacefully.

rest my head on your
shoulder, a compartment made
for me for sale now.

I come to rest on
the shoulder of life, waiting
for the open ditch.

After sleeping, I
take a rest, then nap; living
exhausted, worn down.

rest my eyes behind
a curtain of pain, mothballs
like little grenades.

for the rest of my
life, I’m the gravedigger for
my own burial.

for the rest of my
life, I have the depression
monkey on my back.

for the rest of my
life, I rest until death comes
and I breathe again.

for the rest of my
life, add potential pins to
my chest through the heart.

for the rest of my
life, fight my shadows for me;
I’m too tired to now.
