twittering birds sing
of morning light, they banish
into yesterdays
the first crowing of roosters
those of a previous dawn

I much prefer the twittering of birds than the crowing of roosters, believe me! They crow far too early.

Neat that the twittering birds banish the roosters, refuse left overs!

Anonymous said...

Two very distinct sounds and moods you've caught through the twitter and crow.

What you write and your art is so beautiful it's rarely something I'm able to do, but If I did I wish I were half as good as you are, and you definitely would have been my best Haiku and other stuff I can't pronounce, If I had any involvement still I five you and Doug, the best haiku haiga, what have you, awards lol

Gillena Cox said...

i'm honoured, humble bow Lorraine, thanks for dropping in

Roosters do tend to hog the pre-dawn space while others have to wait their turn.

kaykuala said...

Roosters show more resilience perhaps! Nicely Gillena!

This tells me so much in so few words. A great tanka.

Kristjaan Panneman said...

Nice tanka Gillena, I had the idea that you were talking about Peter, who denied Jesus. Really an unique feeling this tanka gave me.

Gillena Cox said...

Happy you dropped in G.L.

much love...
