A Haiku Experiment

May 31st, 2012

I’ve been trying all kinds of different poetry experiments over the last month. One of my very favorite things to do is ask my four-year-old daughter to collaborate with me. Here’s what we came up with on Friday, May 4.

Some are hard to read, so I’ll write them out here.

My Poems

she whispers
do you know ninjas?
thunderclouds

 

thundercloud
because you can’t see
green

 

green
that’s why it goes
here

 

open
all night long
top hat

 

when
gray is grey
O, Canada

 

number eight
you can’t tell
the difference

 

baby food you love the baby’s mouth

 

TV it cozies your life

 

cotton candy
going down under
the escalator

 

helicopter oh my aches and pains

 

sun
you can’t see
candy

[also]

sun you can’t see candy

 

a warning for babies T-shirts

 

Her Poems

cloud
because you can’t see
purple

 

[my note says, "noun is a person, place, or thing"]

 

80s the number eight you can’t tell the difference
