Selected Haiku

Kristen Woodbury

When I registered to be in Global Haiku, I didn’t know what to expect. I remember learning about haiku in elementary school but I do not remember much about it. I had no idea how much fun I would have in this class. Writing haiku has brought out so many of my emotions. I also feel that is a stress reliever. I know that I will continue writing haiku in the future.

she walks with me
to grandpa’s grave
all she knows is his name


cool evening
mowing the yard
one last time

porcelain doll
missing her right hand
last gift from grandpa


passing the puddle
can’t help but
jump in

around the campfire
cuddling to stay warm
he leans in for a kiss


broken handle
that wobbles when used
grandpa’s hammer

television news
of a wreck on my road
my father calls
