HAIKU and CINQUAIN

We made some Haikus and Cinquain in class today (with XI Science 3-4). I edited out some students' works. 

Palita:
Morning Sun has risen
I'm standing at the window
Thanks God, I'm alive



Anton DS:
I'm falling in love
With a beautiful woman
From her character



Amiq ahimsa: 
Leaves fallen on ground
never hate the blowing wind
They smile in silence. 


Bhakti:
Go around the world
Together with our dreams
Find the way we want


Raihan:
We take the chance now
The hope for all human kind
We will rule the world
 

Palita's Cinquain:
Love
Is about
Differences that unites
And binds us together
Forever

Whose dad never taught him to swim
He fell off a Dock
And sunk like a rock
And that was the end of him

Winter
A frosty morning

Reverberating all around

shiny, sleepy
resting in sunshine
look at him closely
