Poems

A choking earth

Hello! I had given in three haikus for Gelina’s haiku contest cause why not! The results came today and I was…second! Congrats to everyone else- since there were so many people with AMAZING haikus I am not gonna take particular names right now! I really loved the contest idea and it not only was fun but I am sure created slight awareness or at least made the people writing think about how bad a situation global warming and climate change is at. Either way- my haikus came out pretty well so here they are-
And honestly the intro is longer than the rest of the post-

Engines running smooth
Smoke fluttering to the sky
Making our Earth cough.

Crisp heat licking Earth
As rain patterns switch and change
The climate askew.

Rivers flowing dry
As droughts grow long, mean and fierce
Earth sick and coughing.
