National Haiku Day

It’s National Haiku Day!

I went through a brief period of writing these & haven’t since. Off the top of my head, here are a few new ones.

objecting to the cold
i stick hands in my pockets
how is this april?

the heat i carry
in the deep core of myself
burns like glowing coal

protective big goose
i will not bother your nest
i fed you stale bread

it is still so cold
wisconsin legs are too white
put some pants on, dude

Write one! Feel free to post it in the comments.

    shock of black and white
    eight huge pelicans flying
    overhead, they soar
