New Haiku for my poem-a-day project

The average for this week is falling short of target. I fell back on this format, as it seems to work for me.
I was having trouble creating poems in longer formats. Lots of ideas, but no real progress towards new poems. very disappointing!

Rain lashed ears of corn
Heads bowed, swaying in the wind
The cold earth waiting.

Dark flowing water
Mirroring  pain in my heart;
Silence hides the hurt.

Old age saps spirit;
Old age consumes memories;
Memories do fade.

Again unsure if these are traditional; subjects, but at least this keeps the average up. Hopefully be back soon with more poems.
