Poetry Friday: More Late Fall Haiku and New Year Postcards

IMG_1077Welcome to the first Friday of December. Oh, my!  Mary Lee at A Year of Reading is rounding up the poetry this week.

The fourth-grade students shared more haiku with me this week.  But before that, I want to remind people it’s time to think about sending New Year poetry postcards.  You can choose to send 5 or ten.  They can be all the same (I created a photo postcard with a haiku on it and bought multiple copies) or different, your choice.

And now for student haiku.

Bright breeze shining leaves
Falling from high
Sun coming from dawn

Death to all the leaves,
No more green I like,
Wildlife fleeing south

Golden singing wind
Shimmering sparkling sunlight
Glimmering warm leaves

Drifting blowing leaves
Yellow red-brown crunchy leaves
Gold dancing shining

Brown leaves golden red
Gray smoke floating in fresh air
Leaves piled small/big
