Autumn Haiku

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Ms. Anderson's 7th Grade Language Arts class ventured out on a nature walk to find inspiration for haiku and sat on our front steps to compose. Here are a few musings on their walk through the library and out into the neighborhood.

The blooming flowers

Are supported by the grass

Waiting for water


See people with care

Who are giving clean water

To their desperate plants

    Books are scrambled out

    Clutter, clutter everywhere

    In the creaky room


    Students whispering

    Their plots in their grouping books

    Exchanging interests

    Elmo lunchboxes

    Purple bookbags, hockey sticks

    Crushed dead goldfish smile


    This old rock will sit

    Plants will grow around it, but

    This old rock will sit
