I stared at the sky
my mind flew high to the moon
stuck among the star light

I like it too. However, strictly your third line has 6 syllables, not five. I do think the poem turns on that line though with "stuck". The difficult thing in haiku is to make that turn; not so much the strictness of the syllable count. The haiku masters made the nature images work as symbols for man's condition and for insights into that condition. Very pleased you linked today. Thank you.
