I love writing Haikus. My best friend taught me how to write them. He said ' It's not that hard. All you have to do is learn.' So I did and I fell in love with them. Here's my first Haiku:

Clear like Crystals
It is clear, you know
that what some don't know, we do
albeit, they will.

I feel like balancing things out :b

Calm Waters
The water stayed calm
When a child came to the lake
And threw a lil' stone.

Large and Lovable
He came about here
His amiability
showed past his large frame.

Ha, ha, are haikus all about balance?

Wintry curtain
The white curtain fell
one by one, the white flakes fell
but the faces rose

Miscellaneous

What oddities these
the constant drone of nonsense
incessant, random

Two by two they go
one up, one down, both forward
soon they'll reach the end

Just realized that didn't come out quite right. It should probably be 'But a child came to the lake'.

Yes, actually. I would balance out yours, but I can't right now :/ Maybe later.

It works with when too. I like it better because it seems like an abrupt ending when someone's mad. lol

chimes rattle quiet
Wind is a tiny whisper
like secret gossip

As always, Endscape, your contributions are appreciated.

One day
One day I'll be rich
I'll have all the things I want
and I'll never work

not really, just saying.

Well, it sounded like 'even when a child came and threw a rock'. 'But' is more clear.

The Greatest Enemy

Tis not rare we meet,

Lives in my mirror

I ask to my friend,
"What is the meaning of life?"
And I get nothing.

This haiku is about the shallow people in my life. Asking them a deep question will result into a terrified stare.

Here's my contribution for now:

Happy Heart
Stare through the mirror
and see my heart shining through
that makes me happy!

Trees
The way the trees sway
makes me start to imagine
that I'm all alone

And then I wake up
to realize where I am
not really alone
