An ongoing home for Pearl Jam (and non-PJ) haiku

aurynsdadaurynsdad Posts: 862
A lot of folks seemed to enjoy the recent haiku contest that was put on by PJ Soul. Based on that, njnancy suggested to me that there should be a place for Pearl Jam haiku, not as part of a contest, but just in general. So, here it is.

Troubled souls, unite
We have got our place to write
So... drop the haiku!

    My head is spinning
    from the abuse my ex spews;
    my son at his side

    Dance with abandon!
    Tribal beat; sweet guitars; song,
    Cleanse my mind and soul!

    Had to thumb my way
    To get to where I needed.
    Followed rusted signs.

    Shiny signs often
    Draw us in; but, rusted ones
    always guide us home

    Came across a note,
    Written just a year ago.

    Now that you are here
    I no longer have the time
    To spend fearing death

    We feel the blessing
    Of suffering in the form
    Of our happiness

    once you said you loved me
    but I can't remember when
    the silent movement of passing cars
    time and time again.

    Godfather.

    My mind can't create
    It's on lock down; no feelings
    Survival, I guess.
