stare of a blackbird
on a car antenna perched -
without a song spins

Last October Sunday of this year, the year is just tumbling along to Christmas

Sunday Smiles

guest haiku
With a warbler for
a soul, it sleeps peacefully,
this mountain willow

I luv blackbirds. The ones that visit my garden and wall are grackles. They have the most adorable tails. They have black beaks and black feet
