Haikus from a Child

What’s love? I’ve wondered.
Love is giving you the last
Fruit snack in the pack.

What’s hate? I’ve wondered.
Hate is stomping up the stairs,
And slamming the door.

What’s fear? I’ve wondered.
Fear is losing Mom in the
Aisles at the store.

What’s joy? I’ve wondered.
Joy is finding a cookie
In your school lunchbox.

What’s shame? I’ve wondered.
Shame is knocking over Mom’s
Favorite blue vase.

What’s pride? I’ve wondered.
Pride is Mom hanging your art
On the fridge at home.
