From a CDHK challenge: «… create a haiku with the … “baransu” (balance) … technique … through association on the separated lines of the haiku.» The challenge goes on to illustrate how an association with one of the ideas in each line can inspire the next line. (Of course, it is also good to have some unexpected twists between lines.) Here are two balanced haiku for an unbalanced world, with pivotal word(s) highlighted.
(BTW, the [Menu] button atop the vertical black bar reveals the widgets.)

Shinto shrine ritual:
wash hands before entering.

Virus-laden spit may fly

Hmmm. Now spit can fly beyond two megameters.
