End of the Year Haiku

I was cleaning out my file cabinets today when I came across an absolute gem — a handwritten page of haiku from a student I had back in my first year at IHS. I doubt he’d mind them being posted, so here they are:


when the school year ends

kids reign free from restrictions

happy to be young



seniors won’t return

they have better plans for life

move forward now



friends never come back

but new ones take their places

to fill emptiness



relishing only

memories of nobody

an old door closes



begin with new hope

new faith and new memories

a new path taken
