Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Spring 2015

Write 2-3 alternative versions of these haiku attempts.


awkward smiles
timid conversation
blooming love





warm hand
against my cheek






the sun is setting
his eyes become the light source
so glad i said i do




walking down the aisle
away from my past
into my future


being in love
much simpler
when she was alive






time hangs on lightly
invisible spider webs
then it falls away





the weather turned.
everything is cold
just like his heart






passing eager inmates
wagging tails behind bars
just hoping to come home





the daylight escapes
our eyes meet in the darkness
my breath is taken






worn suitcases
mountain of cardboard boxes
a heartbroken goodbye
