Cheryl’s Everyday Haiku (Week 24)

July 7, 2013

June 11 – June 17

Haiku #169 (June 11)

Big brother arranged
A national party line
With my Uncle Sam.

Haiku #170 (June 12)

Securing trash cans
Anticipating a storm
Racoons follow me.

Haiku #171 (June 13)

I can’t find the words
After the death of a child
So I am silent.

Haiku #172 (June 14)

Swings sway in the wind
Dew slides and see-saws are still
An empty playground.

Haiku #173 (June 15)

Hit and run driver
Fearful, fled the scene on foot.
Could she be a mom?

Haiku #174 (June 16)

Child’s belongings packed
Charitable donation
Grave visitation.

Haiku #175 (June 17)

Children bring daisies
Funeral for a classmate
Emptied desk and chair.
