In 17 Syllables


Thanks to Susan for linking us to the recent project at the New York Times. Readers were asked to submit a haiku about one of six aspects of New York City life: the island, strangers, solitude, commuting, 6 a.m., and kindness. Reading teachers especially, this is a great thing for you to share! Some of my favorites are below.

On the 6 to Spring
two cops help a tourist whose
map is upside down
Frances Richey, 63, Manhattan

Riding through the park
no daffodils blooming yet
— but unbuttoned coats.
Sharon Rousseau, 50, Manhattan 


Union Square Market
Blueberries for ten dollars
New York City blues
Sharon Cohen, 33, Dallas
