march thirty one: national haiku writing month, in honor of black history month

Because I fell behind with my daily postings, I have decided to put a little twist on this week. I have declared this week “Black Creativity Week” and In honor of the final week of Black History Month, I’m going to wrap up the last week of National Haiku Writing Month with some poems I previously shared with you. Enjoy!

Bonus: You get two poems

focus

is to wish upon a star

and on the last day

for twenty-eight days

we celebrate history

America lives

march thirty one: national haiku writing month, #12 and #13

Trying to keep up with national haiku writing month, here’s poem #12 and #13

 

#12, college life

 

living on campus

 

should be safe away from guns

 

for some it’s like home

 

 

 

#13, fugitive

 

running from the law

 

drama takes over tv

 

up in flames it’s done
