Haiku #23

Is Earth Day worth it?

Or now just some green washing?

Our actions will show

Since it is National Poetry month and Earth day is in April I have decided to tweet a haiku a day.  Follow me on Twitter @beau9609.  I love haiku because it is easy (that’s not saying I’m good at it) and makes you think about word choice- an important lesson in life and writing!

Earth day is over,

Will we forget for one year?

Or try everyday.

On Friday I was walking to pick my son up at the bus stop and heard this unbelievable racket, I looked up and this was what I saw – mysterious plastic caught on the power line.  Thankfully it has since blown off into my yard and I was able to throw it away but it made me think about bad poetry –heh heh heh- Here goes

Plastic bags float by

Plastic blowing in the wind

Plastic caught in trees

Winds up in the huge gyre

Choking, killing animals

Celebrate Earth Day

40 years ago a call

To teach, learn, protect


Haiku #12

Grey unfolds to rain,

Nourishing it swiftly falls,

No drought this April.
