In conjunction with an Asian Art project, Room 116 wrote the following haiku poems. Enjoy!!
Flowing waves go side to side
Machines are at work.
Clouds float above me
Green peaks surround me near a
Glacial peaks up high
Blue Jay soaring in the sky
The lighthouse shines bright.
Rubies floating calm
Crystals lying on the pond
Glimmering at dusk.
Made by Chloe
Snow-capped hills up high,
Houses down low in the sand,
River sparkles blue.
Purple glowing sky
Mountains glimmering brightly
The day is ending.
Up high in the clouds
Waterfalls flowing down fast
Trees sway side to side.
Stormy mountain tops
Warm up in the mid-day sun
Which heats the valley.
Mountain peaks so sharp,
Petals falling from the trees,
To the flowing lake.
Early morning light
Bathes the mountains in sunshine
As the Earth wakes up.
The foggy mountains
Reach up for the azul sky.
Spring is in the air.
Mountain tops so sharp
Makes petals fly far away
Down to dark sea depths.
THE CHINA PEAKS
Sun shines over peaks.
Mountains are glistening gold.
China town feels peace.
The mountains glisten
In the soft twilight sky
Flowing to the sea.
THE PEACE OF CHINA
Mountains reach the sky.
The valley wakes up with light.
The temple shines high.
In honor of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Room 116 would like to share their poems of peace:
By A. H.
At the beach I’m at peace,
Listening to the waves roll in and out,
Sitting in the sand, the warm sun shines down on me,
Seagulls soar high above the sky so blue
Fresh salt air with every breath
Fills my heat with joy
by E. H.
Peace is the soft music I listen to.
Peace is the sweet dream I think of.
Peace is the nice school I go to.
Peace is the friends I like.
Peace is the nice teachers I love.
Peace is the class I am happy in.
Peace is the principal I admire.
Peace is the quiet and still when I’m sleeping.
Peace is the calm I feel when I’m walking at the beach.
Peace is the serenity of a babbling brook with woodland animals.
Peace is my happiness from the love in my heart and family.
Peace is the nonviolence of a world without war.
By E. G.
Peace is the sound of my cat’s purr
It’s the birds singing on a sunny summer day
Peace is the love and laughter of my family
And watching the sunset go down over the ocean
It is a feather that falls from the sky
and lands in my hands
Peace is the happiness of a dove
soaring above you in the beautiful blue sky
Peace is always in your heart
By J. S. P.
Peace is love
Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream
Of equality on earth for all children
Holding hands together whatever skin color
Peace is my family whom I love
And the places that keep me calm
Even when I’m angry
That’s how I remember peace
By L. C.
Peace is listening to the sound of the calm ocean waves
It is the joy of watching doves fly in the air
Peace is the calm of newborn puppies sleeping
It is the quiet of a sparkly spring day
Peace is the tranquility of watching a summer sunset
It is the silence of walking in the woods
Peace is looking up at the sky
and making pictures in the clouds
It is dancing to the music
in the middle of a floor routine
Peace is the love and happiness in my heart
By M. B. D.
Peace is going with my dad in his truck on a snowy day.
The snow is soft and white and quiet.
Peace is animals, all kinds of animals.
My cat, dog and bunnies are peaceful,
Because they are soft and fluffy, and they love me.
Peace is my friends.
They make me have fun and make me happy.
Peace is reading a good book like books about trucks and machines.
Peace makes me happy.
By O. E.
Peace is like having a magical power
You never knew you had
If I had the power to spread peace
I would teach the world
Love, respect, caring and acceptance
Peace is like having a best friend
by your side at all times
By D. N.
Peace is walking with my dog Kasha
in the silent green forest
Sometimes I have trouble sleeping
Peace is when I can sleep
Peace is playing Wii. Superstars Tennis
Peace getting 15 points, then 30
Peace is Everything
By E. L.
Peace is love and it is joy
Peace is not fighting
It is being nice
Peace is making good choices
It is being agreeable and friendly
Peace is dream of happiness
It is feeling love in your heart
Peace is like floating on a dove
It is something you can’t see but you can feel it all around
Peace is wanted all around the world
By J. B.
My breath is frosty
Little crystals fall from the sky
Everything is white
I blow snow from my hands
I hear sleds woosh down the hills
Snowballs fly past my head
The plows are out
The thought of hot chocolate warms my heart
By K. M.
Peace in the world
Peace on earth
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream
For children all around the world
To hold hands
Around the globe,
Doves show peace
If you see doves leave them be
If peace is around the world
Fighting will end
The only thing that would touch you
is a loving hug or a helping hand
Peace on earth
Peace in the world
Love peace forever
Peace is Love
By L. G.
Peace is like a walk on a beach
And listening to music
Or playing tag with my friend
Peace is spending time with my mom
And snuggling with my dog and my cats
Peace is love
By M. E.
Peace is the sound of the soothing sea
And love in every room
Peace is the sound of a baby’s cry
And happiness in my heart
Peace can be heard in the birds
And music playing as I drift off to sleep
Peace is a dove holding a laurel leaf
This week we wrote haiku poetry about the lovely season of autumn. A haiku is a Japanese poem which follows a set format of five syllables in line 1, 7 syllables in line 2, and 5 syllables in line 3. We hope you enjoy our haikus, and we would love to hear yours!
Cranberries taste so good
Leaves change colors everywhere
Fall Leaves Color the earth
Crisp cold wind blows hard
Cranberries bounce high
The dried ones taste like candy
Harvested in fall
Leaves fall in autumn
Smell of pie is great
Pumpkins on the steps
Jack o lanterns light the way
Bats fly on the night
Such a nice season
Going to pick a pumpkin
M .B. D.
Colored leaves fall down
Pumpkins on the step scare me
Orange, plump, with stems
They are tart but good
Cranberries bounce like small balls
Fall is their season
Trick or treat candy
Hot apple cider is good.
Fun leaves to play in
Fun treats for my friends and me
Pumpkins on the front step
Pumpkins are yummy
The leaves change color in fall
Halloween is great
Sis’s fall birthday
I can jump in leaves in fall
Jump in leaves all day
Skating at Tony Kent rink
Eating apple pie
To snuggle in warm blankets
My birthday’s in fall
