Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • July 2013


weekend at home
kids creeping in
snuggling bed

weekend at home
kids creep in
to snuggle



meeting friends
wading creek
bucket full of crawdads

Hot summer days
kids playing street games
mother watching

stormy night
six telling stories
flashlight on





turning in my keys
the landlord inspects the house
no, that stain was always there

I drive by
my old house
with a new fence

rainbow created daydreams
astronauts, kings and queens





young mother
coastal breeze 

marching bands
battle calls
ole abe

a hard rain
a boy stirs oily rainbows
the sewer floods






warm summer breeze on my face
cool taste of beer

soft fresh sheets
warm press of her body
waken to the sun
