My first few haikus

So I figured I should finally try my hand at this marvel that is the Haiku poem
Following just the bare guidelines of 3 lines with 5-7-5 syllables here is what i got

Haiku 1

Wedding dress hangs there
Seven days till the big day
Nerves creating havoc

Haiku 2

Sun is not shining
Eyelids won’t open, feeling heavy.
Bedtime has arrived

Haiku 3

Blue sky, sun is out.
Chilly winds, cold hands, cold nose;
Winter approaching

Now be dreadfully honest

    Hiya Line,

    I really like the 2 and 3. I think if you change 1 around to

    Nerves creating havoc
    Seven days to the big day
    Perfect wedding dress

    it works better. It’s just ‘hangs there’ seems to conjure really ominous images!
