Haiku With HA – Birds May 15, 2014

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

spring is in the air
the birds are all courting now
they chortle and sing
looking for material
to build their summer’s nest

blackbirds, my favorites
sing out in the early morn
but sparrows are fun
they play tag on my terrace
in their loving hide and seek

ducks squawk on the lake
swans twine necks on the water
the swallows returned
from their winter homes down south
the coo-coo’s call fills the air.

spring is in the air
bird joy fills my eyes and ears
life renews the land

  2. This is beautiful — so many ways we’re enriched by birds in our lives!
    Sparrows *are* a lot of fun. And as much as I used to hate the grackles (our version of blackbirds) I love them now. Aggressive, but comical and very bright.
    Great poem Georgia!


      • No just today Saturday which is now over…it is midnight here. I took photos of a turtle dove a while back and never had a chance to write something fitting…not sure if I have time but that and my ducks I visited with my son…I will see. Check out the Painted Lady addendum story I wrote and let me know what you think (smiles)


        • YEah…a little rest on a Sunday is a good thing…I spent the morning and part of the afternoon at the lake taking photos of…ducks and sailboats, what else 😉


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
