Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Spring 2017

time spent making perfect snowballs
only to be destroyed
time well spent



pool toys
water is now calm
children ready for bed



make-up and heels
the door bell rings
new beginnings



too many bags
more than one trip
familiar smells



winter wind whips
on campus, kids rush to class
sweating up to the fourth floor



sitting in bed
relaxing in pajamas
time flies fast



blankets spread
fingers intertwined
star gazing



heat intensifies
train horn in the distance—
summer nights



condensation trickles
Mom's sweet tea
bug lands on book



singing by the fire
with all of my friends
is the only way to warm my heart


sparkly dresses
sweaty gym
. . . cute boys



in the house
of someone else
