Hi, I had another haiku giveaway day for my Thursday poem this week. Wrote a haiku for anyone who asked for one. I had a couple requests, too, like "a limitless haiku" and a "climber haiku", which is fun cause it makes me feel (as Tim put it) like a Haiku DJ.
The first one, for my son, is probably my favorite.
DIEGO'S SKILLSAW: Your saw is so skilled / carved this knotted wooden heart / into a hope chest.
HIGHWAY SASHA: Your Way is so High / They call you Bridge now since all / the people look up.
BRANDON’S LOLLIPOP: Your lolli’s so popped / that center looks too good to / count licks on the way.
PADRA’S TEARDROP: Your tear’s so dropped / even your scary sad days / get down like they’re hot.
BIG WHEEL STEVE: Your wheel is so big / everywhere you turned I just / had to roll with you.
ANN’S WINGSPAN: Your wing is so spanned / the kids called it an earthquake / as their ground took flight
STEEL STRING TREVOR: Your string is so steel / stretched between mountains you walk / no fear, just music
MEGAN’S LIMITLESS HAIKU (as requested): Your hug’s seventeen / syllables playing tag on / your arms, still running.
COURTNEY AT LIGHT SPEED: Your light’s so speedy / somewhere between here and your / hope, the dark gave up.
TGIF THANK GOLD IT’S FRIDAY: Your day is so fried / Everything that you do is / frickin delicious.
CHRISTY’S SOFT COVER - Your cover’s so soft / they read you at night just to / hold you in their hands.
PHOEBE’S FREE REFILL: Your refill’s so free / no one in the room can feel / empty around you.
ALICA’S SUN SCREEN - Your sun is so screened / it prints on people like a / designer label.
TIM’S WALLFLOWER (a climber haiku, as requested): Your wall’s so flowered. / Jealous, gravity saw you / and moved the ground there.
REAL SIMPLE SARAH - Your simple’s so real / stressed-out fairies and dragons / pop you like a pill.
KATIE’S COOL SHADES: Your shade is so cool / the sun wears your shadow on / Fridays out dancing.
CACHET ON THE NORTH SLOPE: Your slope’s so North / you let it take its course but / it always points home.
KATIE’S STREET LIGHT: Your street is so lit / the word on it burnt holes the / dead keep wishin on.
STACY’S BRIGHT SIDE: Your side is so bright / ‘course your grass is greener, ‘course / we wanna be there.
HILARY’S GRILLED CHEESE: Your cheese is so grilled / every smile got that burnt flipped / look that’s addicting.
COLIN’S MUD SLIDE: Your slide’s so muddy. / You know life’s more fun if you / get a lil dirty.
SWEET TOOTH ANNIE: Your tooth is so sweet / that even the cuspids chew / nice when you’re around.
STEM CELL HELEN: Your cell is so stemmed. / Like any cage, you can just / flower out of there.
PATCHWORK MALIA: Your work is so patched / the broken places are what / make the quilt gorgeous.
