Princess Polar Bear

When writing my Haiku, I wanted to write about the most extraordinary people on ordinary days in an everyday paradise. I love to create Haikus that evoke feelings of love, compassion, and laughter.

eating celery
the cupcake talks

curtains rise
music plays
the sound of point shoes

summer breeze
mist from a child;s squirt gun
falls in my drink

our morning walk
the dog piddles
on a neighbor's rose

red hair flows
she draws back her arrow
she hits the target

cold wind blows
a winter wind fills the air
the cold never bothered her anyway

ball gowns swish
the elegant princess
kisses the young boys cheek


running to tell him
I love you
he turns the other cheek

I fall into his arms
I see his smile
up close for the first time

Christmas morning
a beggar asks for money
I empty my pockets

Summer sun
the flowers peek
from my cousins grave

as the polar bear sinks
I wonder
can one person save the world
