Sally Clark poetry: Berry Blue Haiku

 

red strawberries
dangle from their stems
pick three

 

six black seeds
red fruit, green rind
watermelon grins

 

yellow sunflowers
filled with black seeds
too many to count

 

 

Author’s Notes: I wrote these three children’s haiku specifically for a delightful online publication called Berry Blue Haiku which is no longer being published. They appeared in the June 2010 issue.

Sally Clark and her husband, Mike, owned the Auslander Restaurant in Fredericksburg, Texas, from 1985 to 2001. Since retirement, Sally has been writing poems like clear pools, the kind where you can see all the way to the mossy rocks on the bottom. She writes about simple things like laundry and yellow highlighters, huge things like the trials of Job and the sins of Abraham, funny things like ice cream and penguins and Halloween, and scary things like heaven and hell and the color of dirt. Her award-winning poetry has been widely published in books, anthologies, magazines, gift books, and online. In 2017, her poem, "Los Compadres," was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

Sally's first publication for children is "Where's My Hug?" a lift-the-flap board book published by WorthyKids/Ideals. Buy it for a child you love.
