Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Spring 2013


in the uncertainty of candlelight
a tear of joy on the microphone
dreams come true





roof top
a sweet country tune
summer heat

sometimes all you need
is a little

sun gleams
on his barren head






Kindergarten program
scan the audience
my mom's happy face

Tears well
from a mother's eyes
her first child leaves for college

yelling, screaming
laughing and smiling
I love family






childhood would not
have been the same
without my dog

two youths
hidden treasure

I wear the coat
but the memory
does not wear





small fingers stretching
the black and white maze
finding my way

midsummer's night swim
sneaking out
for a dip

tickle-fights before dinner
my dad laughs
the hardest






smiling face
behind the glass
