writing haiku, I have learned about my inner feelings and
myself and have found such a good way to express the way I
am feeling. I have created a way to bring the negative feelings
out and put them to good use.
class I conducted an author study on Garry Gay, he is a very
profound man and I was greatly inspired by his work, along
with Michael Dylan Welch, because they incorporate their photography
to the haiku they write. I am inspired tremendously by the
work they have done and I find much of my inspiration also
comes from pictures. When I am with my friends I am always
happy, so then I just think of writing haiku. I find so much
joy in the fact that I can write haiku because I did not think
I had any type of poetic insight in me.
is my signature haiku and one of my favorites.
into the covers
was one of my favorites because it really explains how I am
in the morning when I dont want to wake up. I am NOT
a morning person and especially when the room is cold when
I wake up because then I desperately want to snuggle deeper
into the covers. I think everyone could understand where I
was coming from because I am sure they have been through this
at least once. I like to write haiku other reader can see
eye to eye with me.
Here is another haiku, which is very close to my heart.
news at the kitchen table
tears like a flowing river
five lives changed forever
haiku was written about my brother when my sisters and I had
found out that he had been killed. What a tragic days this
was for us. I can still remember it like it was yesterday
and every detail just runs through my mind.
into the covers
haiku gives a great sense of comfort. The phrase "morning
chill" is easy for everyone to relate to because it is
a common experience. There are many morning were I would like
to forget about my responsiblities and snuggle into my covers.
This haiku does a great job of capturing a very common feeling.
haiku is so snuggly. I can relate to it so much. the word
snuggle is a textured word and it really makes this haiku
unique. So many times in the morning I feel like I just want
to snuggle into my covers a little longer. Especially because
when you wake up it's typically a little chilly outside the
covers. I can see the color here, I picture a big white comforter.
I can smell the freshness of the sheets. I really enjoyed
this haiku. AJ Cunningham
