#Haiku Happenings #6: Ellen Grace Olinger presents Haiku Lessons!

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

blue-grey sky
light on birch trees
and evergreens
the icicles melted
yesterday

kitchen window closed
no flowers nearby
the fragrance of coffee
and fresh vegetables

Creative Note: The five senses are often mentioned in poetry. The haiku lessons I helped create at The Haiku Foundation (THF) include a plan that features the five senses: Haiku Writing Plan for Grades 5 – 6. “The overall theme for this plan isThe Senses In Our Everyday Lives: what we may see, hear, touch, smell, and taste.” Jim Kacian is editor and the plans link to other content at THF. Many people contribute to education at the foundation.
