Haiku To Edit 1

PACE Global Haiku • Millikin University • Attempts 1, September 2010

chin on chest
sweaty palms
heartfelt prayers




the magic of coffee and snow
trip with my brother
a chirstmas tradition

lighting candles
a mother
calms her child’s fears

crowded mall
hundreds are walking
a child stand alone




wedding reception
family and friends
good times

talking out loud
too alone with her toys
a four year old's imagination

fresh fall snow blowing
a warm fire roaring
chicken noodle soup




fluttering in the womb
looking out the window

hot summer breeze
glass of lemonade
the dog on my lap

cool fall night
the fire blazing
listening to the guitar




birthday candles
water sprinklers
wading pool

for a difference in results
….still a negative sign!

trembling hands
walking through tombstones
the crickets




all alone upstairs
turning on the tv
watching MASH because I can

ten tiny fingers
grasping a father's hand
a gift from God
