Cheryl’s Everyday Haiku (Week 25)

June 18 – June 24

Haiku #176 (June 18)

Grieving parents
Imagine their child in heaven
Meeting great-grandma.

Haiku #177 (June 19)

A child holds a toy
She’ll place in her sister’s hand.
The final present.

Haiku #178 (June 20)

On a day like this
Children can play outside late.
One girl is missing.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #179 (June 21)

Children play til nine.
“The street light isn’t on yet!”
Summer’s late sunset.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #180 (June 22)

Sorrow and regret
Are expressed in salty tears
Cried at funerals.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #181 (June 23)

Riding the right lane
Driving at the speed limit
Because I’m not late.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #182 (June 24)

Super Moon returns
And looks inside my window
Slowly he passes.

poetic resonance.

Haiku #22

Unmerciful sun
Generous only with light
Lets earthlings shiver.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #23

“I cannot help you.”
Says the moon, turning away.
“Go back, talk to sun.”.

Haiku #24

Prescription bottles
Stand like health helping soldiers
Ready remedies.

Haiku #25

Flake filled clouds expand
Across darkening grey skies
Snow falls, finally!

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #26

City dwellers move
Through bricks, chrome, trash and paved streets.
Urban survival.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #27

Flying city skies
Doves alight telephone wires
Pigeon mockery.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #28

Grieving hearts follow
Mournful dirge rhythms sobbing
Beside fresh mass graves.
