Welcome to the thread, Alchopwn :) 

(Psst... no one else will read this... that's right, everyone else, stop reading this grey part... so, just between the two of us: in this thread, you've got to take the last line from the previous poster and make it the first line of your haiku.)

spoons or stamps or their own lips

no, nothing else, nope

living water rapids or

plains flooded with life
