Haiku Regional Message Board

On this message board
Everything is so quiet
And I wonder why

'Net is far too full
Of frenetic feline frisk
We want more of you!

Calm, purring, stretching:
Rainy day cat's lassitude
Is what most appeals.

This Region is cool,
But not fitting with my own,
Embassy Closure.

Halt Melons they cool,
Luxury is needed yes,
Keep them for now good?

A little red dot
Is gliding across the floor
I am chasing it

Dreams haven't come true,
How can I still dare to dream?
Because birds still sing.

Fleeing Bethlehem
I post "no room at the inn"
on Trip Advisor.

Enveloped by night
Walking alone on the road
The air is humid

There is only me -
And my endless loneliness
keeps me company

The weather is nice
Apparently to mock me
For I'm lost in storm

A storm is raging
Deep in the core of my heart
My thoughts are gloomy

How funny it is
To be surrounded by pals
And yet feel alone

No friend is a friend
Unless they can see your soul
And you know - they can't!

Nor do you tell them
What you have been going through
For it is painful

I had to jump off
Into a murky abyss
To evade demons

An uncertain bliss
is better than certain doom
That's how you leap off

Now I'm falling free
Not knowing where I will land
Through the deep dark pit

Still walking alone
I wander and I wonder
What tomorrow brings

There stand on the shelf
One two three four five glasses
I push them - none left

Gravity is fun!
Baby humans think so too;
Ask me how I know.
