Morning Impressions

per syllable count the verse in the image is not a haiku as its exceeds seventeen beats

here's another presentation which can be accepted as a tanka

this early morning
it laves even
the silent intervals
of a bird's song

Devika said...

This laves, Gillena -- beautiful :)


Lorraine said...

This is beautiful Gillena I love both sketch and words
(but I have to admit, I hate the word 'lave' I just hate it in English, it's a French word...

Frieda said...

This is very calming.
I like the drawing and the words, too...
and I just learned that "lave" is an english word (fascinating!)

Gillena Cox said...

Frieda calming is a correct
connotation and precisely why i chose to use 'lave'
Devika, Lorraine, Joo glad you stopped by

Lorraine there are words i too do not like but lave is not one of them; HUGS

much love

I often play with the line breaks and word placements in my haiku before I finally decide which one to publish, but sometimes those alternatives that I never used still stick in my mind. Nice to know I'm not the only one.
