Morning Haiku and Waka – Animals in Haiku – January 13, 2016

shaded Ducks

floating blossoms
fluttering o’er the orchards
majestic monarchs

first morning light
the  cuckoo calls from woods
like clock-work

in September
the salmon swim down stream
the ocean calls

Mallard ducks
laughing along the lakefront
the geese flew south

Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #65 combining animals and seasons

Today’s splendid episode was presented by Sara McNulty of Purple Pen in Portland for her award-winning post for our special Christmas Kamishibai challenge. Here is one of the haiku she used to inspire her post:

The harvest moon–
rabbits go scampering
across Lake Suwa

~ Buson ~

And here are two of her own haiku:

Autumn

black nose sticking up
Is the dog buried under
a pile of leaves?

Summer

hot night
chorus outside my window
tree frog serenade

    • Thanks Joanna – our ducks which would usually be seasonal birds now stay here year round … so I decided to talk about them as laughing at the migrant birds .. I’m glad you enjoyed the post.
