3 ROSA PARKS HAIKU BY SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO TEENS

1

Rosa Parks on bus

unmoving, an ice sculpture

protest with the rain

2

She did not give up

started a revolution

they did not give up

3

she was not the first

first was too dark, too pregnant

teen Claudette Colvin

4 (bonus haiku)

seams of revolution

camel through the eyes

unravels status quo

note: haiku composed by Organ Mountain High School Creative Writing Club
