Haikubes

I have a lot of word-based creativity games stashed away in my room, so today I thought I would pull out my trusty box of Haikubes (Chronicle Books) in an attempt to get the creative part of my brain working again. They're very easy to use. You roll all of the dice, put aside the two with statements on as your 'inspiration' for the haiku, and you make a 5/7/5 syllable poem out of what's left. The statements on my dice today were 'A DESIRE FOR' and 'MY CHILDHOOD'. That's a pretty meaty topic for anyone. Here's what I came up with:
