A Minute Collection of Haikus

Once upon a time
We sang in a circle and
Time flew into mist

We are a world of
Children covered in layers:
Dusty energy

Find us, keep us, for
We are like a butterfly
Whispering freedom

Anything you want
Take, take away from the slopes
That menace madness

Eyes sharp as the wind
Mouth quick as a basilisk
He roars like thunder

Eat, drink, sleep, dream, but
Don’t forget to brush your teeth
The sun is rising

“What you are?” I ask.
“What you will be,” you whisper.
“Come, join me this time.”

We are gone with you.
Obviously, we aren’t home.
Why’d you ring the bell?

Bright and bubbly nets
Layer the cloudy rainbows
Sparkles of rain fly

Much hectic cramming
For today’s spectacular
Denial is gone

Oh my dear baby
Life will come to you in steps
You can feel freedom
On the small tips of
Your itty-bitty fingers
Don’t throw it away
