April 27-30 and Haiku 27-30
popsicle

On Friday, I left home at 5:00 a.m., drove to Houston,
did a full day's school visit and drove home again. 
It was not the most haiku-ish day, if you know what I mean. 
Which is why my piece for that day is about ... coffee.


Haiku 27
4/27/2012

First sip burns bitter
and still I take another.
Black sky grows milky.


And then it was the weekend.
I just love weekends.
And spring break.
And summer break.
I would rather have my kids knocking around here a bit than rushing off every morning like the world's a'fire.


Haiku 28
4/28/2012

A bare foot dangles,
feather duvets swell, settle.
Who says it's morning?


Haiku 29
4/29/2012

girl with basketball
dad with good time on his hands
unbeatable team


And today?
Today is Monday, in case you hadn't heard....


Haiku 30
4/30/2012

like swimming cross-wise
each stroke long, effortful
until I give in

There is no plural form of the word haiku. But how about a name for a group of such poems?

Reading your lovelies all together makes me think we should call them a break of haiku.

What do you think? :)
