Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Spring 2016


current's pushing
sun's glistening
coasting, holding my oar




I drink my coffee dark
To prove I can
Handle you



looking out
listening to the raindrops fall
wanting to make a difference




gliding smoothly on the ice
holding his loving wife's hand
sliding into oncoming traffic



young couple
one loves more




headphones in
shoes laced tight
open road ahead



six, seven, eight
inches fall to the ground
school is cancelled




sideways glances
that's the only way
to look


they still giggle about
boys and love
but attend grown up weddings
every other weekend




stroller corral
his ice cream falls
the monkey's glare



snuggled in pajamas
excitedly waiting in the dark
the snow day announcement
