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.

Haiku #179 (June 21)

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

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.

Haiku #182 (June 24)

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

Cheryl’s Everyday Haiku 2013 (Week 03)

January 21, 2013

January 15 – 21

Haiku #15

Poet aims pen
To capture words between the lines
Hunter and her prey.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #16

Deceptive sunshine
Much illumination while
Secret things occur.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #17

Curious young frog
Practices lily-pad leaps
Races reflections.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #18

Obnoxious night owl
Hoots wisdom from high branches
While everyone sleeps.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #19

Soft shade serenade
Budding rose and dewey glade
New lovers picnic.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #20

Quick right hand grabs loot
The left remains unaware
A thief on duty.

by Cheryl Crockett

Haiku #21

High tide approaches.
Carefully crafted walls fall.
Crumbling sand-castle.
