8 Haiku


This was a writing challenge; to write 8 haiku that are related by using one word from the previous verse in the middle line of the next, except for the first which uses teh word from the first word of the last verse in the middle line of the first verse. I left the alphabetized lines which helped to show which line the word should come from. The 8 haiku are numbered.
There is a theme here; Outside. I had to keep looking out my window to come up with things to write about. This prompt was more fun than I thought it would be.

A. A red robin hops
b From branch to branch on my tree — v
c Snow falls to the ground
D. Snow covers the ground
e Robins outside my window — a
f It’s snowing outside
G. Evergreen bushes
h Covers the front of my house – d
I And it’s cold outside
J. No one is outside
k Or lurking in the bushes – g
l Because it’s too cold
M. The winter chill cuts
n I don’t want to go outside – j
o My coat keeps me warm
P. A car passes by
q The driver leans in the cut– m
r Do you think he’s cold
S. Outside on my porch
t The seat from my other car– p
u Sits quietly there
V. The branch of my tree
w And the back porch of my house – s
x Contact like old friends
