A Life of Memories

Lindsay Malone


In this class I have learned not only how to write Haiku, I have also learned how to read it. Before this class started I tried to read the Millikin University Haiku Anthology and I was totally lost. Nothing made sense when I read it, but I learned that if you read it slow, close your eyes and imagine yourself in the situation it makes more sense. Haiku can be very relaxing when you read it. My collection of Haiku is from different seasons throughout the year. I love the changing seasons and I have a lot of Christmas memories that I chose to write about. I hope you enjoy.

the bank of the river
he is waiting. . .
for a bite


whistles and laughter
all around
the diving boards

Christmas presents
Grandpa sneaks his open
out of turn


Silent Night
passing candlelight
through the pews

parade of lights
children watching
for that special someone . . .
