Week 6

Seasonal Haikus


Fall
Jump into the brown
Twirl in wind and knit those scarves
Crunch the leaves away

Winter
Bare skeleton trees
cold for cuddles and stories
With mittens and tea

Spring
Poofs of pink pollen
Tart sweets for picnic mornings
Dandelion sneeze

Summer
White lace sundresses
Tired sleep beneath tall limbs
Let the season last

And a few extra:

To find a lost key,
Will it lead you to a door?
Just folly searches.

Behind a giggle
Up those tress and with scabbed knees
You've found your childhood.

She sits, quiet and shy.
Beyond the closed door she's there
Dancing by herself

    Just my favorite lines from the pieces. =D
