Early morning

early morning

boisterous bird songs punctuate

the humming traffic


This weekend’s prompt comes from Hello, Cheney, whose lapse in memory was a happy accident for us. This weekend we’re asking you to harken back to your grade school days and write a haiku. No word restrictions, just stick to the structure as defined below.

  1. One of the worst vacation moments I have experienced was spending a week waking up at sunrise to a cacophany of cawing from, literally, dozens and dozens of crows who owned the trees that surrounded m bedroom. I confess to having thoughts of murder that aren’t normally associated with crows. 🙂 Your haiku shows the contrast between nature and civilization extremely well. Great job!

  2. Ah! There is nothing as sweet as waking up to the songs of birds. My late granny used to say that a city where there are no birds connotes evil, or a dead town, or a curse. Same as having vultures gathering everywhere.

    Thanks for this one, Lena.
