Haiku Friday: Deaths in 2016

Chris Barker of London created the Sgt. Pepper-style montage here, showing some of the famous people who died in 2016.  There is a good comprehensive list here.

Let's haiku about those we lost this year, whether they were famous or not.

Here, I will go first:

Quiet, graceful, true
I saw her planting flowers
Not by her own house.

Now it is your turn-- just use the 5/7/5 formula, and remember well.

Oh death; Whooooah death!
Won't you spare me over ‘til
another year? Death.
Watch out there Princess!
Troubles you never imagined
Awaited you unseen.
So many unknown
So many accomplishments
So many endings
We all die, ya know.
You. Me. Everyone someday.
Its the way of things.

Concepts died this year
'16 saw the death of facts
"Feeling" rules the day

"Truth" now subjective.
Is this the end of reason?
Auld lang syne indeed.
