The following, given in response to a Quora question asking after poems and haiku about entrepreneurship; five minutes to create, a haiku chain. 🙂

the hopeful innovator
seeking out a niche

Like a new mother,
contractions, new and scary
push at new ventures

The not-yet-born child,
mystery, waiting;
will it be healthy?

Pacing waiting room,
straining to hear any sound;
the board delivers

Financial doctor,
from the mahogany door,
with papers in hand

Birth certificate…
or declaration of death,
date and time fresh signed?

Cigars and champagne,
or quiet apologies?
Life, so uncertain

Impassive clock ticks
while unknown futures await;
