Today’s article will be about slowing down a little. The year of 2017 saw a great many events taking place throughout the world. From political scandals to massive acts of violence and celebrity intrigue, most would agree that everyone needs a little break from the world. So here are a number of haiku that were written by this school year’s seniors last winter. These were inspired by lovely images of winter, from lush landscapes to simple scenes. Here’s to a better year in 2018.

Told him I loved him

He would never believe me

You’ll find him in snow

***

Blood red fruit hanging

Always understood by none  

Poisonous to all

***

Small bunnies shiver

But none know how to climb trees

Winter hunger kills

***

The arctic snow clings

Nostalgic within my heart

Now stained with bright red

***

Birds sing in Winter

One flies away toward the fruit

One loses his song

The snow is falling

The little kitten is cold

Snow fluffs in its fur

***

They threw it at me

Frozen ball made of soft ice

My face scrunches up

***

Little fuzzy cat

The soft snow is attacking

Run away from it

***

With winter coming

The warmth of an animal

Is stronger than fire

***

Hey little baby

Isn’t your nose turning pink?

Want to come with me?

White snow falling now

Baby deer trying to live

Girl afar alone

***

She walks on the street

Deer wants to follow her but

She seeks darkness now

***

The night is coming

They are both alone in snow

It is cold and dull

***

Baby deer on street

Wants his mother to come back

But she disagrees

***

I am all alone

No one to be by my side

Dark forest is home
