Haiku Attempts 1 - Transitions

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Fall 2012


Cool lemonade
Drinks with friends

nothing gets better
but we must try anyway
so they say

every ten seconds a new wish
flashes across the milky way









knowing school
is just around the corner

Blue Ridge Mountains roadtrip
dog puke
no more court dates

extreme drought
dead grass
children do a rain dance









i'm handed lemonade and cookies
thanks Grandma

summer nights
toasted marshmallows
too good to let cool

tent camping at midnight
it's still too hot
to cuddle
