Morning Haiku and Waka – March 29, 2015

Spring concert in 4 movements

a single blackbird
chortles his mating song
and then a challenge
back and forth they sing at dawn
filling the morning with spring

first light of day break
two blackbirds challenge with song
a third adds his voice
back and forth the music goes
nature shames Vivaldi

larks and finches
greet the morning sun
twittering happily
from a blackbird solo
now this vibrant symphony

spring has come
each voice adds it’s counterpoint
ah – life’s symphony
lovelorn song-birds sing their songs
to please their future spouses

The Raven

single black feather
reminder of dawn birdsong
or E. A. Poe

slithering shapes
lizards run helter-skelter
down the stone walls

  1. The concert imagery works so well here — shaming Vivaldi, indeed!!! It’s beautiful and it brings a smile!
    And – um – you have lizards there now?


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
