I'll start:

To fast
I cant keep up with my thoughts
they lead me astray
to many unfullfilled jobs

thinking way to fast
everything cluttered and messy
how do I slow down

purple flowers at rest
tranquility, peacefull, hope
showing me the way

Summer time shunshine
warming my soul to its core
freedom from the cold

Where is happiness
Does it come at a high price
Afforded by me?

race car
my mind is racing
tonight it seems so much more
cant get it to stop
though I try and try
itkeeps racing on andon
not knowing who wins
but does any one win?
how can I be the only
the lone racer won
is it one or won?
I can never tell which one?
which one realy won.

is there a syllable rule for haikus? i can't remember what it is, or how many lines.

the first line is five the second is seven the third is five, but I have seen them done with other patterns before, i think as long as you keep the pattern the same. say four six four, three five three, seven nine seven and ect. that way it flows.
