Haiku Attempts 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • June 2015

a box in the attic
covered in dust
a beautiful gown


dirty hands
the smell of fresh green beans
fill the house

a woman screams
a rat scurries quickly
dust flies


the smell of coffee
the shuffling of feet
he takes his children to the bus stop

looking up
the star filled sky
seems so far away


someone sits alone
a knock on the door
no ones home

puppies barking
little kids
yrying to pet them


sun shining
people cheer
another win for the team

sirens zoom pass
a dog chases behind
friendship never fails


runner out of breath
a pink ribbon sweatshirt
pink ribbon ring
