Some attempted Haikus

Just for the uninitiated( as i was earlier in the morning), a haiku is one of the most important form of traditional japanese poetry. Haiku is, today, a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.

I am enlightened;
neglected bath does the trick
Scald mends broken heart.

The sun shines too bright
And hides the moon from men's eyes
In partial darkness

Autumn has set in.
The leaves blow away from him.
He drinks all alone.

Freshness of the morning sun.
The day's best part is often
missed in sleep.
