Environmental Haikus

2012 September 20

natureA concrete jungle
This is my environment
Hopeful for clean, green

Smoke stacks in the air
Polluted unhealthy body
Asthmatic I am

Blue red sky at dawn
Warm summer breeze cool dew
Eyes open –  waste, smog

Tall trees to open sky
Fresh air and the river roars
Camp, a vague memory

Recycle everyone
Trash takes long to decompose
Inspire generation

Ms. Anderson’s 7th grade summer class participates in combining poetry with science and nature.  They’ve enjoyed opening up their eyes to environmental concerns in their southwest Chicago community in Blue Island.
