National Poetry Month Contest: Day 17 – Rain

Today’s theme is “Rain.”

It’s raining in Dallas today. I love rain, especially since we don’t seem to get enough of it here. Still, I had a bit of a challenge coming up with a rain haiku. But, here it is:

rain, where will you go
after you visit with me
I want to go, too

National Poetry Month: Day 15 – Children

Today’s theme is “Children.” 

I couldn’t find enough time to make myself sit in front of my computer yesterday, so I missed Day 14. I’ll post a haiku for both Days 14 & 15 today. (Feel free to enter any haiku on any day’s comment!)

For the “children” theme, I’m reposting one of my favorite “Allie” haiku. I wrote it one day while trying to get her to eat her bananas. 🙂

No more bananas
No more “Here comes the airplane”
My hangar is closed

National Poetry Month Contest: Day 13 – Summer

Today’s theme is “Summer.”

I love seasonal metaphors. Like Summer. Sometimes, in the heat of the moment, we wish away our summer. But it passes too quickly.

lovely summer day
when sunlight glimmers through green
‘til autumn leaves fall

Water may seem soft and fickle, but give it time. It gets where it wants to go, no matter what’s in its way.

water trickles ‘round

rocks wither away

National Poetry Month Contest: Day 11-Clouds

Today’s theme is “Clouds.”

Unfortunately, due to being out of town, I didn’t get to post a haiku for Day 10. But if you have a haiku with the theme “Books,” feel free to enter it in today’s comments!

When I was a child, I used to look at big, puffy clouds and imagine angels sitting on them. As an adult, my imagination isn’t so vivid anymore. Yet, having lost people I loved, I still find comfort in imagining them as angels, though now, they hide behind the clouds.

National Poetry Month Contest: Day 9 – School

Today’s theme is “School.”

There’s nothing like seeing the world all new again through the eyes of my grandchildren. Through Tommy’s eyes, I can wonder about the whale that lives in the neighborhood pond. Through Allie’s eyes, I corn on the cob never tasted so good as that burst of each kernel’s flavor when she held her first cob.

Class is in session
I learn the world once again
Through eyes of a child

National Poetry Month Contest: Day 8 – Trees

Today’s theme is “Trees.”

Sometimes I miss the quiet of living in the country. One of my favorite “sounds of silence” was the way the wind whispered through the trees. Living in Dallas, I occasionally hear momentary whispers. But too soon, they’re interrupted…

That day, I stacked rocks in whispering trees . . .

trees whisper secrets
like a breezy lullaby
‘til traffic wakes me
