The Gooseberry Garden Poetry Picnic "children"

The Gooseberry Garden's Poetry Picnic

For The Gooseberry Garden a few haiku about children and their actions. It wasn't easy, but I have search my data base of haiku and found some nice haiku with children as theme (or their actions). There could be a haiku you have read earlier on this weblog, but also new ones:

on the beach
next to the prints of the little boy
an empty shell

peacock throne

my granddaughter
wedged between the cushions
on the peacock throne

a peacock throne is a large chair with a large fan-like back


the little child sobs
'I want to cross it!' -
the rainbow bridge



on bare feet
a street urchin plays
in the snow


the pouring rain
young boys playing on the beach
soaking wet


an abandoned shell
cracks under the foot of a child -
cicadas singing


little birdie, little birdie!
the little child screams
on the golf course

look daddy!
the little child yelled
the full moon

And a last one, about questions of children.

cochlea (or snail house)


empty cochlea
hidden under fallen leaves
'where lives that snail?'

Well I think this has to be it. Children, love them, they are so pure and honest.

Sincerely,

Until the next Poetry Picnic.

Thank you. It's my passion to write haiku as beautiful as nature is. I hope you will come back again.

freezing cold
the light of the full moon
even brighter
