Poetry - 9th Grade ELA: Haiku




An old silent pond...

A frog jumps into the pond,

splash! Silence again.

- Matsuo Basho

I am over you.

Then my eyes meet yours once more,

and I fall in love…

- Alisha Mead


A misty morning -

Pumpkins in the air, while boots

Crunch on autumn leaves.

- Anonymous


Sick and feverish

Glimpse of cherry blossoms

Still shivering.

- Ryunosuke Akutagawa
