Celebrate Poetry-4/22: BIRDS

The theme for Day 21′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “BIRDS.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

I like this photograph not only for the attitude the birds show, but because of the one different bird in the scene. (Probably the one female among males?)

different from the rest
she stared at her fellow gulls
stay or fly away?

    Soaring ever so high
    On eagles wings to reach the sky
    Never near by

  2. Like a busy bee
    Hummingbird flies, colours bright.
    Sure sign spring has come.

    Seeing reflection
    in glass bird pecks, pecks on pane.
    Driving me crazy.

    Gull flies overhead
    Graceful yet mischievous
    Car was just washed

    Blackbird fly!

    in my pocket

    feathers

    dragon fly
    sandwiched between the beak
    crunchy summer snack

    woodpecker

    spring meal

    Sweet song wakes me up
    Treasures on my windowsill
    Nature’s happy song
