05 Matching Contest - Song Haiku - Spring 2021 • Millikin University

you're a firework
not only on the fourth

no one
holds you
(closer than the one you haven't met)

spinning in circles
I dance
the pain away

I drive past your house
wishing I could
rewind time

arrow down


arrow down


arrow down

top champion


Immigrant Song
no one is free
seeking refuge



bottom champion

arrow up


arrow up


arrow up

as the wind blows
let's get lost

star-speckled sky
dancing in the moonlight

don't you ever
come back

sun shines through . . .
the stained-glass windows
my soul lightens
