I am not the most creative person, but I felt very confident about the haiku that I created. Throughout the process of making different haiku, I really wanted to do something that I have never experienced before. Going into this class, I did not even know what haiku was and what it could do for someone’s life. Creating haiku has been very entertaining and it keeps my mind focused on stuff. It has opened my mind to so many different ideas that I will cherish. It has taught me that we do not need to complicate stuff to make stuff more beautiful. Usually, the simpler something is the better it can become.

mother and daughter
argument about clothes
sound cancelling headphones


at the grocery store
so many


after the rain
my sister jumps into
reflections of herself


men are trash
block his ass
you can do better


down the river
calm morning breeze



Busch Lite
gradual conversation
with the old man


friday night lights
crowd roaring
a hug from grandma



silent snowflakes
going door to door
helping neighbors


playground full of woodchips
no children
