You Can’t Punch The Clock

9 Apr

You can’t punch the clock—
clicking keys for poetry
throws time to the floor.

Instead, punch the dashboard
for this chance car radio
news alliteration,

sources in Sadr
city say certain sectors
of the city seem. . .

Happenstance hardly
hurries handy helps or hints.
Haiku hesitates.

Forest by Caleb Eells

Roots as thick as arms
Lots of trees towering high
Rivers running fast

Caleb wrote this haiku for his second grade writing class.  The picture is from a collection he is creating called “different faces.”
