attempts at haiku

I don't really care for haiku all that much, but here are a few that I have written recently for the sake of expanding my poetic experience.

1) i don't like haiku
being concise won't work with
my verbosity

2) light it up, breathe in
never to be free again
nicotine shackles
(inspired by an anti-smoking drawing by a student at Alcorn Middle School)

3) smell of sweet salt air
sounds of waves causing smiles

4) children in the streets
calluses on soles and souls
no shoes on small feet

5) first day of bright sun
pale skin used to long sleeves
white now painted red
