One liner haiku

Since about the middle of this month September, I have been experimenting with one liner haiku following a daily subject prompt from a haiku poet. As you will see, they consist of just one line with no punctuations. So far I have written about mountain, river, animals and beach. See if you like or can understand these ultra-minimalist poems. Here's my latest on top, No. 6 for my late wife. Today 9/24 on children is now topmost.

7) children 9/24
new children's game cyber bullying

6) autumn 9/23/11
autumn blues wife's death anniversary

1) mountain 9/16/11
hardest to climb mountain of self-doubt

2) river
slaughtered whales lifeless in blood-stained water

a veteran feeds a one-legged bird

4) beach
letter in a bottle widow's beach find

5) beach 2
a half-empty baby's milk bottle aground
