  2. 22. "The Fire" In Haiku

    • By Andrew Mancinelli
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2013

    At age four, my house burned down at about 4 in the morning. I was inspired by a quote I found online to write about this. I absolutely love the style of Haiku, so I wrote one.... This poem is completely representative of my experience at such a young age, hence some lower-class vocab, such as "bed-head" and "annoying and loud" while most of the poem is written in a sophisticated manner, representing the age gap of then and now, both while attempting to create a visualization of the setting.

    I was in fire,
    The room was dark and somber.
    I sleep peacefully.

    That alarm then rang,
    The sound annoying and loud,
    But it saved my life.

    I had woken up
    Scared, confused, and sad alike.
    I knew what happened.

    My shelter burning;
    My bastion fiercely falling,
    I, at just age four.

    I'll never forget
    The face of mother possessed;
    The look of pure fear.

    Her light pajamas.
    Her dark and rustled "bed-head."
    She soon yanked me up.

    Along with my rest,
    My sister, brother, and dad
    Ran out of the blaze.

    My pets, left behind,
    Found the inevitable.
    They live now above.

    Out we stand, post-haste;
    The cold and wet post-storm land.
    We stand, soles chilling.

    Approach the neighbor,
    Seemingly calm and relaxed
    Amid inferno.

    Asked our well-being.
    We had no reply to give.
    She left with a sulk.

    All possessions lost,
    We drove far away, love lost
    To live for years more.

  6. 26. Ideal Day

    After school ends, you think what to do during summer break. No one to bother you from what you're about to do. You walk to the balcony, a book in your hand, and sit on the chair outside, the sea breeze facing you, as the sun beams down on you. You sip tea as you turn the pages until the sun starts setting. A seasonal rarity as the light fades and you see the beauty go down peacefully.

    Peace In The Summer Time

    Sea breeze blows ahead
    The book flows and the sun glows
    Perfect summer day

  7. 27. Sweltering Climes

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    The poetic season of monsoon in North Indian plains is preceded by intense summer when temperatures soar up to 47 degrees Celsius. Heat and dust prevail everywhere and humanity seems to buckle down with languor and lethargy. To those unaccustomed to the harsh weather conditions, venturing out at peak hours may be perilous, with risk of succumbing to heatstroke. All eyes are pinned to the skies above, praying for clouds to emerge and descend down on mother earth and cool the raging fires.

    Poem About North Indian Summer

    Parched throat, roasted skin,
    Scorching sun rays, blazing winds
    Soul sizzling within!

    When I was younger we would play hopscotch in the day and have campfires at night. I wanted to capture the feeling of how summer doesn't end when the sun goes down because it's a never ending cycle of fun, and day and night just seem like a difference in light when it comes to summer!

    No matter what the season is, children always find a way to enjoy themselves. These haiku poems describe some of the activities enjoyed by children during spring, summer, fall, and winter.

    Haiku Poems About Each Season

    springtime shower starts
    kids are jumping in puddles
    formed in their backyard

    summer sun shines bright
    kids are building sand castles
    on a crowded beach

    autumn afternoon
    children pick fruit with parents
    in a vast orchard

    mild winter day
    children are skating on ice
    in a city park

  13. 33. Happy Spring Haiku

    • By Harold Corzine
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2018

    The spring season has always given me a spiritual lift throughout my 85 years of life. The greening of the land and the flowering plants each year are like a rebirth of the planet. Even the sky seems bluer. One of my fondest memories was seeing the crocus buds popping up through the snow near the library on the campus of the University of Wisconsin when I was a student there, the first vestige of the new season.

    Spring brings happiness
    Flowers, songbirds, and green grass.
    God's love on display.

  17. 37. Strawberry Moon

    I love the different seasons of the year, this tiny haiku style poem is about the Full moon of June, as summer really kicks in and sometimes we even see a pink or reddish tint to the moon or halo, usually meaning it will be a hotter day ahead, and also shows the power of the moon to control the ocean tides, and the thrill of fishing on a hot summer day gives a lazy, carefree feeling and a delicious dinner if lucky, that seems like something to whistle about! For my husband and two sons!

    June Haiku Poem

    Full strawberry moon,
    ushers in hot days of June,
    high tides fill the dune,

    hot sun rising soon,
    fishing in the afternoon,
