1/. Grey gives me the blues Colour blind sky gods paint more clouds Dripping down like tears 2/. Haiku For Dummies Five-Seven-Five syllables No rhyming, three lines 3/. Stairway To Heaven Last chance for the Mile High Club Descent into Hell 4/. Clouds eclipse the Moon Fluff out-darks the black sheeting Rain works the night shift 5/. Doomsday Clock finger Bending into question mark This close to midnight. Arthur Chappell

Roses are blue, Violets are red, What's going on in my head? (Rhyming, not a Haiku just something that popped into my head earlier this morning.)

@kepweng these five poems are completely independent of religion, and I don't have any religious beliefs, thanks

Those are interesting, I am more of a conventional style poetry fan. I usually do four lines four verses.

@sumofalltears that is more like quatrains but as long a it is good to read the type of form is not important

I've heard you speak of this style before. It's an interesting read.
