The early mornings inspire poetry. I sit quietly for a time. Today I looked for poems about the stars in my archives.
stars in the night
of garden mums
in the rain . . .
new poems begin
the same poems
for the rest of my life
stars and tree branches
Haiku Lesson Note:
Our Haiku Awareness Plan for Grades 3 – 4 at The Haiku Foundation features a beautiful haiku about the prairie and stars by Billie Wilson.
As stated in the lesson, “For this Haiku Awareness plan, we feature haiku from the anthology, Montage: The Book, created and edited by Allan Burns (Winchester, VA: The Haiku Foundation, 2010, 2012).”
