About Haikus

"About Haikus" —Dominic, 12

 

Birds fly in the sky

Oblivious to our life

I'd like to join them

 

A delicious cake

Made with the best recipe

I want to eat it

 

Haikus, I'm surprised they've been around for so long

Without a rhyme to move them along

Without a rhyme to move them along

 

Haikus, I'm surprised they've been around for so long

Without a rhyme to move them along

Without a rhyme to move them along

 

Fish swim in the sea

Eating, or being eaten

A dangerous life

 

A Japanese poem

Ancient, but very alive

Syllables matter

 

Haikus, I'm surprised they've been lasted so long

Without a rhyme to move them along

Without a rhyme to move them along

 

Haikus, I'm surprised they've been around for so long

Without a rhyme to move them along

Without a rhyme to move them along

 

Except this one, from "Avatar, the Last Airbender" to end my song

 

My name is "Sokka"

It's pronounced with an "Occa"

Ladies, I rock ya
