OK. Drumroll please…..
This is the haiku poem I wrote in the third grade!!! Thank you to my teacher Mrs. Mylnar for introducing me to the awesomest form of poetry ever!!!
Now think about this. When I was 9 yrs old I lived on a dead-end road out in the middle of country. I find it so cool that I have this poem as a personal piece of history to actually reflect on what I was thinking about in the third grade.
Where the green grass grows
and the hot sand burns your toes
That’s where I live best
My inner third-grader wanted to live by the beach and guess what???
Thirty years later I -I –I live by the beach! There you go -the power of manifestation. magic. poof. The universe is too cool.
So this silly little poem is what prompted me to write haiku poems in the middle of the night. Alas none of them could ever be as good as the one from 3rd grade. Mic drop. I should have quit while I was ahead :)
This will be in the beach line of notecards for summer 2017.
