Tropical Mockingbird image from google.com



temporary view
aloof stands the mocking bird -
a wholesome pastime

temporary aloof whole




obedient to the sway of morning those dawn birds chipper at chirping

first a morning prayer raspy voice of a grackle on awakening

caught in somber thoughts each day break a call to amazement of light

If she stood still for just long enough to click that snap, it's worth it :) Loved both the click and the poem. :)

A bit of a show-off these birds seem to portray. Impressive in brevity, Gillena. All 3 in one haiku!
