Haiku Kukai 6

Global Haiku • Millikin University • January 2020

cloudy mind
I have to
stand tall



dancing lights
on swaying trees
happy new year

blending in with
the foliage
two brown eyes

quiet humming
of computer monitors
falling asleep



heard before
the elevator door opens

a sea of jellies
the alcove

whispers of the wind
in the night
remind her she’s not alone



the abandoned cat
perches on a stone
a lion protecting its land

the old shelf filled
I’ve never read

dark eyes
open to no one



colorful crocs
filled with feet
taps against the wooden floor

the man
rows his boat
no destination

thunder clouds
rolling in
sunshine behind the rain



darkness hidden
by a lamp
corners filled by light

filling her heart
with holes in her arms

high five coffee
down low
too slow



hard at work
the student
dozes off

white walls
almost hiding
a quiet girl
