Five Haiku by Kim Deslaurier

Sound of their razors

electrifying the night

drowning my music


Flexing of tymbals

like the heartbeat of a drum

pounding decibels


Lush petals turn brown

their beauty remains

dried flowers


Sun glistens on dew

morning walk through the garden

~ a watermelon


soft metal tapping

I hear it on the stovepipe

gentle rain begins


Kim R. Deslaurier taught writing for 20 years, and while her students were writing, she was writing with them. Highlights in her life were receiving a National Writing Project Fellowship, hosting poetry events, and promoting young adult writers through the Young Writers Project. Inspired by her prayer group, daily devotions, and the grace of God, Kim writes haiku every day.
