The Thoughts of a Cycle

 

Summer: 

BDDA088C-BA95-441D-881B-B7A825C57D4D

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bubbles flying up

Endless blasting music

The humid air of a backyard barbecue

 

Waves rushing in

Sand seeping in my swim trunks 

Too much showering in July

 

Never knowing when

The hard work will be ruined

Of my castle of sand

 

Graduation day

Off to a new start

One things stands in your way

 

 

Metacognition: Summer was a fairly easy season to write haikus on. There’s so much that goes on in summer and there are endless thoughts and feelings about it which made writing poems about it enjoyable.

 

Autumn:

9280415D-36CA-4AD9-8C95-EA5DBB106E42

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leaves changing colors

Layers added on

School buses added on to traffic

 

Red, brown, orange, yellow

Falling, withering, blowing

All rakes 20% off

 

New beginnings

Meeting up with old friends

Who’s your advisor?

 

Leaves dying everywhere

Oh you poor squirrels

Better get to diggin’

 

 

Metacognition: This was definitely the hardest season to write about. Throughout my times writing the haikus, I kept putting this season off because of the troubles I had coming up with things to say. But once I got in the grove of the season, it was easy sail.

 

Winter:

1A620BB0-723B-4391-940C-E4C4B4DEC634

 

 

 

 

 

 

Floating crystals

Shoveling for mom

Cars slipping on ice

 

The inevitable 

Countdown of couples

Till the ball drops

 

Waiting at home

Bored out of mind

I still don’t want to go back to school

 

Cocoa in one hand

My phone in the other

Oh how times have changed

 

 

Metacognition: Winter is one of my favorite seasons so writing about it wasn’t too difficult. I tried to reminisce back to memories of the labor behind winter time. But it was also interesting to looks at it from a different standpoint.

 

Spring:  

5E89EE3C-3280-4A8F-ABB5-C5D3255A2258

The blossoms of daffodils 

The sightings of birds

Only my pencil stays the same

 

What is that smell

We should have never

Tried to clean the house

 

Frolicking in flowers

Rolling down hills

Only my allergies stand in my way

 

Raining one month

Honey bees in another

Oh how you confuse me

 

 

Metacognition: Spring is pretty much the ending and beginning of everything. It’s a time for everybody to relax but also start trying to become a better person in their daily lives. It’s also a difficult season to understand weather wise so I enjoyed the challenge of taking on a spring poem about weather.
