Let's see your survivor haiku!
Traditional rules are 3 lines: 5 syllables, then 7 then 5.
They don't have to be any good 🤣

---------------

stone smooth in my hand
thunderclouds gather and darken
bunny in the pot

taking careful aim
deer raises its head for a look
forgot to reload

family portrait
see broken swing thru window
floorboards creak softly

sleep to forget, heal
colours in the sky, a dream?
cold wind burns my face

run crouch hide and breathe
fingers frozen curse this day
ready here they come

Treading carefully,

Hear a growl but see no bear,

Sh** it's underground.

 

Climbing a mountain,

Throwing rocks off carelessly,

Nice I hit a wolf.

 

Running through the woods,

Two big antlers i'front of me,

Run the other way.

 

Also your first 2 Haiku's are 5 8 5 instead of 5 7 5, just so you know ; )

oops tx, fixed

stone smooth in my hand
thunderclouds gather,  darken
bunny in the pot

taking careful aim
deer raises its head to look
forgot to reload

 
my worries and fears
snowflakes hit the frozen ground
great spirit take me

I came to a place
fangs of sorrow, den of grief
frightened I ran hard

 

Dante's version, but he's not following the rules ;)

I came into a place mute of all light,
Which bellows as the sea does in a tempest,
If by opposing winds 't is combated.
...
The infernal hurricane that never rests
Hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine;
Whirling them round, and smiting, it molests them.

--from The Inferno

Stomach running low
Why do you taunt me this way?
Pancakes on the wall
