First Rooster Crowing – Tanka – January 19, 2015

morning silence
a single ray of sunlight
first rooster crows
black dog starts barking
the sparrows twitter brightly

Actually today’s prompt at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai was a Japanese 5th season (New Year) kigo … so the first rooster crowing would be the first crowing of the new year, but I live in Italy .. and the first rooster crowing in the morning wakes everybody up … starting with the dog out in the courtyard in front of my house.

New Year’s Day –
everything is in blossom!
I feel about average.

at the tail end
of the cloud burst crowing…
