Haiku to Edit 2

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Fall 2013

Leaves crunch
under my bike tires
I like it










the old woman straightens
her husband's tie
unspoken love

as though everything
is okay


I want to be there
but the smoke
suffocates me









tracing hearts
on your hand


summer dusk
a distant scream
the old train tracks


fresh fall breeze
the soles of my feet
enjoy the challenge







my tears run free
museum fetus


the walls
speak to me
my grandma's old home
