God must be sleeping.

nice haiku there ethan. since haiku is short, some may think it's pretty easy to compose, well i'm not sure about that...how you have to compress everything into a 17 syllable poem and convey the message through implication and expression of allusion . a poem written in this form is very difficult for me. good job!

The origins of haiku can be traced back as far as the 9th century. Haiku is more than a type of poem; it is a way of looking at the physical world and seeing something deeper, like the very nature of existence. And, for a first attempt - you nailed it ... well penned!

Thank you very much
I like this and I especially appreciate the hope you left even when the stars have been turned off. God has not abandoned us, he is just resting his eyes. But he is still here.

Nice work. Keep writing please.

I have never tried haiku before but i love the ending on an ambigious note. It sounds like something scary or bad is about to happen because God never sleeps. So if he slept then it means existence has no protector. Im sorry but i just found this poem way too beautiful and way too meaningful although it is very short
