I am in the midst of a snowstorm while trying to compose a haiku about meteor showers. Recalling summers gone by is a fun exercise on a day like today!

Today’s haiku is dedicated to my student, Owen Scott-Smith, who wrote a winning haiku last year for the United Nations International School (UNIS) Haiku Contest. I have included his haiku in today’s email for your enjoyment. It won first place in the high school division:

fireflies shine
no one’s watching

Thanks, Owen, for allowing me use a phrase from your poem in mine:

evening star quilt
meteor showers when
no one’s watching

Tomorrow’s prompt is “paintbox.”

Have a wonderful (possibly snowy) day!
