Schoolhouse of the Rising Sun

For this assignment, I wrote about an elementary school student who thinks he’s late for class, and panicking about the teacher’s potential punishment for that. After his classmate helps him with the haiku project, the teacher forgives him, saying he was tardy, as well.

Schoolhouse of the Rising Sun

I’m sorry I’m late.
Heavy traffic this morning
Has cost me a grade.

What are you, crazy?
No teacher’s ever been a
Perfection-seeker!

Even if that’s true,
My teacher will not approve
Of absent students!

Just take a deep breath,
Think of today’s assignment,
And you’ll be okay.

We’re …

Haiku Me, Haiku You

Haikus can be fun
Haikus can also be dumb
This is the latter

You must begin with five
Then you upgrade to seven
And then you regress

These are lots of fun
And when you read them out loud
Your friends will smile…

On the Shores of Gitchigumi

It’s a Haiku

On the Shores of Gitchigumi

Words written on paper

Probably about something

I’m not sure I know

Some say cosmic thoughts

Deep meaning from within you

Bearing soul to all

Is this comedy?

Am I only just a jerk?

Or is this Profound?

Haiku about Haikus

My dad loves to write.

Feelings flow out easily.

Haiku form of choice.

 

First child goes to school.

Haiku soothes parental wound.

His mark is left here:

 

“Bards apology

He has more feeling than skill

Haiku is blunt tool”…

Some tasty Haikus

5/7/5

Sitting on a word

Delicacy must not fade

You are what you write.

————————————

A haiku is love

Knowing oneself is not so

The two coincide.

_____________________

Love is what I’m for

Love and writing poetry

Which do you prefer?
