Writing Haikus

So, I signed up for a new writing course that focuses on using Haiku to express feelings. A haiku has 3 lines of 17 syllables: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. I didn’t spend a lot of time overthinking these. I had 5 different themes to write about. This is what came this morning.

Molecules collide
The teapot blows its lid off
Spews volcanic ash
Breath gasps, what is this?
Peering into the abyss
The pupa transforms
The dark noose tightens
Eagle wings cannot fly free
Mummified remains
Acids permeate the pit
Regurging its bile
Decay guaranteed
Buds unfold their radiance
Life is beautiful
