Hello Haiku

We started our annual poetry segment of the 100 Day Writing Challenge today, and as always, I have been totally charmed by my students' writing. So far it's just been haiku, but there is something very fresh and honest in so many of these simple little poems that I am exceedingly optimistic about the rest of the month.

Let me give you a couple examples:

The wind blows all day
The clouds are so dark and gray
and then comes the rain.

Today is awesome,
tomorrow may be better,
yesterday is gone.

I wake up sleepy
Too cold to get out of bed
But I have to pee.
