Renga:

The first snowflake falls
Bushes wear cozy white hats
Winter has arrived.

Remember Autumn’s warm breeze,
I’d love to go back there, please.

Haiku:

Black wind breaks the sky;
Fiery breath is my waking.
A dragon, am I.

Elegy:

Before a bird was about to fly,
He up and died and said goodbye.
Now up in the heavens he lives today
Swooping into the woods where he used to play.

Cinquain:

Cloudy
Gray skies, fast wind
Sleeping, reading, playing
Curl into a blanket and dream
Dark day

Tyburn:

Rumbling
Fumbling
Grumbling
Bumbling

Along came a rumbling, fumbling bear
Who upset the grumbling, bumbling bee
