As the clock struck five

One by one the shadows grew

And thrived in the dusk

There in the lamplight

I saw a shadow passing,

My heart coming home

The sentence pairings read

As the clock struck five, one by one the shadows grew.

One by one the shadows grew and thrived in the dusk

There in the lamplight I saw a shadow passing.

I saw a shadow passing, my heart coming home.

This week’s pairing is five and thrive and this pair of Haiku was the result
