Stars in the Sky

The early mornings inspire poetry. I sit quietly for a time. Today I looked for poems about the stars in my archives.

stars in the night
and colors
of garden mums
in the rain . . .
new poems begin

night sky
seeing stars
through leaves

short days
stars brighten
winter sky

the same poems
for the rest of my life
stars and tree branches
another sunrise

Haiku Lesson Note:

Our Haiku Awareness Plan for Grades 3 – 4 at The Haiku Foundation features a beautiful haiku about the prairie and stars by Billie Wilson.

As stated in the lesson, “For this Haiku Awareness plan, we feature haiku from the anthology, Montage: The Book, created and edited by Allan Burns (Winchester, VA: The Haiku Foundation, 2010, 2012).”
