Attention! Haiku


This week's theme: Attention

You should read the sign
There's an exclamation mark!
The hazards are there.
Attention! He shouts
We assume the pose, quickly.
Straight backs and raised guns.
 
There’s so much to see.
I’m at an exhibition
It’s hard to decide.

Poor attention span
Affects learning and language
He'll suffer at school

Cell phones and learning
It's a bad combination
Disruptive and rude.


Attention to detail
That transforms unruly leaves
Harnessing nature

Listen to the bird
Singing so beautifully
Spring is truly here.

    I would love to banish texting so that pupils can fully realise the power of words - as you clearly have done in your poetry (and your knitting!) I fully agree that 'attention to detail' to key. Thank you so much for following my blog and directing me to yours - what a pleasure it is!
