Reader Response Essay:
Aubrie Cox's Haiku

Haiku Collection

Michelle Holsapple

The collection of Haiku I put together I believe to be the best of what I have written. I like the way that each of them represent who I am or have been. Each one of them is a reflection of some memory that I cherish.

sister’s dress
how pretty she looked
now it's mine


Kool-Aid mustache
chalky hopscotch
star wishes

paddy cake, hopscotch
double dutch, rhymes
bell rings, till next time


closet full of clothes
nothing to wear

five o’clock shadow
in the waiting room
. . .is that a cry?


another page turned
another chapter read
too new beginnings

mom’s hand
the last things shared
banana popsicle


grandma’s quilt
from her mother
to mine

echo of laughter
the walls
he built


branch by branch
a canvas
of trees
