Bird Haiku

among leaves
dipping in the rain
a robin

Sketchbook 7:3
 

alone
in a narrow
island street –
a gliding gull turns its head
to watch me

Red Lights 9:1
 

blackbird
in the snow
blacker

World Haiku Review
March 2013
    

cold camp –
a tea bag steams
in the crow’s beak

Blithe Spirit 23:1
 

sparrow’s flicker the gradual cat

The Heron’s Nest  XV,1
  

great tit
scissoring
winter silence

Shamrock 24
     

  doves
veering
  toward
     the
         dawn
               ignite

Sketchbook 7:3
 

blue tit
pitying
winter

Sketchbook 7:2
 

skylark
reseeding
infinity

Blithe Spirit 22:3
 

    the day darkens
  that new songbird
just the pipes

in Blithe Spirit 22,3
 

crows alight
on naked branches
dark foliage

Blithe Spirit 22,2
 

ruminations…
starlings darken
winter skies
