Setting Sun

Brett Coffman

The title of my chapbook happens to be part of a haiku that I wrote. The haiku turned out far better then I had originally expected and has become one of my favorites among my work. However, that is not to say that the rest of the haiku I've written didn't turn out good. In this collection are some of the works I have written and have deemed as some of my best. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did in creating them.

I'm currently an accounting major. I play video games as a past time. I've come to understand and respect haiku in Mr. Brook's haiku class. My favorite types of haiku are those that involve word play and common, everyday, situations. My favorite haiku author is Miriam Borne.

snow covered house—
empty silence
broken by my favorite song


flowers blossoming . . .
through a bitter smile
I wish them luck

sun's warm beams—
the flower
opens its petals


under the colored leaves
your lips for mine

sunny day
staring at my homework
a headache ensues


full moon
from nothing

no power . . .
my hand guides me
to the bathroom


cherry blossoms
don't taste
like cherries

setting sun
glistening off the water—
soft sand


Haiku from a youtube video: <>

two astronauts—
holding the world
in their hands
