Selected Haiku

Caroll C. Keller

This book contains the 10 best haiku that I feel I have written while attending Dr. Brooks’ Global Haiku class. The inspiration for my haiku comes from my family—my husband Jim and my 2 year old son, Tristan. I would like to thank them for who they are and for everything that they have done for me. These 10 haiku are my favorites because they all stem from actual events and have a special place in my mind and heart.

sand on my feet
wet towel on the chair
falls to the floor

the waves rush in
the sun sets
they walk hand in hand

anohter argument
I close my eyes
to see again



October moon
the pumpkin on the porch
half-filled with candy
