Like I said, this was a project I did for school. There are three each of haikus, tonkas, cinquains, and limericks here, but that's not all I did for the project. Other, longer poems for said project that I have given over to their own separate stories are An Uninspired Villanelle, An Inspirational Sonnet, The Greatest Man to Walk the Earth, and Redemption.

Haiku

Sun

Looking out window,

The sun blazes brightly in;

Kind of hurts my eyes.

Haiku

Hope

Skies grow cloudy now;

Low temp.; might precipitate.

Chance of a day off.

Haiku

Alien Encounter

She sees me looking,

A sweet and beautiful girl.

I turn my head back.

Tonka

Chill

Walking down the street,

Cold wind bites my unclothed face.

Try to turn away;

It goes wherever I go,

Never ceasing 'til I freeze.

Tonka

Moon

It hangs in the sky,

White and full, it rules the night,

Reflecting the sun.

The full moon shines down on us;

Good thing I'm not a werewolf.

Tonka

Going Beyond

Tonkas don't much rhyme,

But actually does this time.

Rhyme scheme five lines thick,

It's kind of a limerick;

Is combining two a crime?

Cinquain

Lunchtime

Lunchtime

Required break

Relaxing, nourishing, supplementing

Reprieve from school's monotony

Repast

Cinquain

Food

Food

Delectable fulfillment,

Filling, renewing, life-giving

Edible, hunger-stopping goodness

Nourishment

Cinquain

School

School

Helpful education

Teaching, restraining, liberating

Sometimes burdensome, overall good

Institution

Limerick

Super Hero

There once was a caped crusader

Who dressed in all black like Darth Vader.

Intuitive sense,

Gotham's last defense,

He is quite a criminal hater!

Limerick

Weirdo(this is about a friend of mine)

There was a young man from Brazil,

Of weirdness he had quite his fill.

By him doors were held,

And people repelled,

For weirdness did what it will!

Limerick

Teacher (this one's about the teacher for whom I did this assignment)

There once was an English teacher

Who hated each monkey creature

She pulled off great capers,

Like the school newspaper,

And other extravagant features!
