Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Fall 2010

tea made
sittting outside
the sun rises

tattered quilt,
banana bread
warm breeze in her hair

too young
to know she is
too pretty for him




that’s my brother
knock it off

juice from the apple
on the tip of Pocket Knife
wetting his stubbled chin

two girls walk by you
a silent tear




long strands of hair
draped over her eyes

a trail of footprints
with each rolling wave

frisbee whizzes
past cold nose
clouds of slobber in the sun



bike ride
by the mississippi
with friends

brushing the sticky sand
from the
backs of my legs
