Write a Long Dark Haiku

The snow falls to earth

Covering without judgement

All is connected

Okay, sorry. Prepare for a wall of Haiku...
I am about to copy and paste some of my haiku poems from the Fan Creations subforum on Steam... ( https://steamcommunity.com/app/305620/discussions/9/133257959063605451/ )

Snow, you deceive me.
With your face of purity.
My ice cold lover.

I almost made it
One percent, zero percent
Fade on my doorstep.

Greed, weighs like boulders
Haste, an impatient scared kit
Fear, these will end me.

Wind screams and lifts snow
A blinding white sheet of death
Cold white curtain falls

Alone in the cold
Every day is my birthday
Perhaps my death day.

 

Fine, fine. I hear the grumbles and growls... you can read the thread I linked at the top of this post. Lots of good stuff, by many good people on Steam.

A tale of forgetfulness, regret, and the reason why I tore up several perfectly good articles of clothing.

Can't make the climb out.
I'd better rest up a bit.
....where is my bedroll?

Start in the cold night. 

I'd better seek shelter soon.

Did I hear a bark?

 

Starting a new game.

Trying out Interloper.

And now I am dead.

Night, still and silent,
Slogging sleepily through snow,
Shelter, so distant.

Feral and fearsome,
Frightened by furry fury,
Fortified by fire.

Rusted sardine can.
I'll take the chance...bottom's up.
And I'm blowing chunks.

You should not eat those.
Unless as a last resort.
Here, have some reishis.

It Won't Last

Shimmer - Firelight

Glow softly - Gloves on numb hands

Echos - Lament of wolves

 

Just putting one I've already posted here so that it's compiled.

Sorry I'm late with a haiku but here are a few.

 

Wolves, leaving me dead,

Fading into the long dark,

Better luck next time.

 

 

 

Mournful howls echo,

Wolves, shadows in the tundra,

Watching us, always.

 

Hypothermia,

The candids stalking behind,

Wolves, biding their time
