A Glimpse of It

Chelsea Taylor

Dedicated to the one's
I love the most.
Thank you for everything.

The haiku in this book are a collection of memories of mine. They are also ideas, thoughts, and things I have shared with others around me. Each haiku tells a story about something and shows you what is important to me. This collection is titled "A Glimpse of it" and the "it" is my life. A glimpse is simply a momentary view into my life. I hope you enjoy reading my collection.

Writing haiku is very exciting and I have learned to let my mind run free and to express anything I'd like to in my own way. I never knew haiku needed to be "born" until I took this class and I have enjoyed writing haiku freely, about anything and everything on my mind.

child lays still
on a trampoline
spotted: the big dipper


umbrella in my drink
and the sun on my face
. . . this is the life

the abandoned backyard
a child's playground
a pet cemetery


the woman's yoga pants
two sizes
        too small

a rumor
swallows the staff
company ink


in the mirror
the weight lifter checks out
his muscles


my friend smiles
at the cute boy
on the treadmill
