Three Haiku

Haiku poems are difficult to do well. I think getting the ‘turning point’ of the mood/realisation is more important than sticking to the 17 syllables!
Here are my attempts anyway. Feedback is always welcome. 🙂

Three Haiku

Basho’s life was hard –
what have I to complain of:
all mod cons and a bus pass!

Cat pounces at a shadow –
Can I tell
shadow from substance?

The roof not leaking –
Is this as good as it gets?
Body and mind fleeting. . .
