Haiku Friday

Independence Day
a.k.a Fourth of July
Freedom for us all

The meaning's the same
"All men created equal"
Freedom for us all

Thanks to those who fight
Keeping us safe and granting
Freedom for us all

Supporting our troops
Yellow ribbons and banners
For red, white and blue

Please come home safely
Without you, we're no longer
Freedom for us all...


Go here or here for Mr.Linky (these 'kuers rock) add your own piece of artful writing.

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky at the above link with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your generic blog URL). We will delete your link if it doesn’t go to a haiku. If you need help with this, contact Christina.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button above.
