Haiku 74-81/100

The following few haiku are my attempts at the more “modern” style of English haiku writing I was talking about a couple of weeks ago, at least my interpretation of it.

74
eyes long
for the untouched
stars

75
will the sun
catch a glint of gold
today?

76
in a world of
too much content
why write?

77
red numbers
the college fund
dissolves

78
plans unfold
the push of a button
starts something

79 and 80
to any eyes
but those of a dreamer
it is out of reach

to any heart
but that of a lover
impossible

81
only stars
to the dreamer’s eyes
points on a map

Maybe not exemplary pieces of modern haiku, but I found it fun to move out of the strict and comfortable 5-7-5 syllabic format while still trying to maintain a minimum number of words. I may craft a few more before the end of this little project of mine. Thoughts?
