More birds . . .

It’s funny how the world becomes a little bit more synchronistic this time of year.  Maybe it’s just the seasonal magic that comes along to remind us that nothing–and everything–is new, depending on how you view life and love and, yes, haiku. 

I had already written and contemplated posting another bird haiku (about chickadees) when yesterday, my friend, Melissa Allen of Red Dragonfly, left a wonderful one-line haiku about chickadees on her site.  If you haven’t ever visited Melissa’s site, you should.  It’s chock full of talent and inspiration, and, anyway, if you’re into chickadees, this way you get a two-fer.  So what do you have to lose?

the sparrows on bare branches
turn into chickadees

About Margaret Dornaus

I’m a writer and a teacher, as well as a haiku-doodler. I live in a beautiful woodland setting, surrounded by native oak forests, that inspires me to record haiku snapshots of luna moths and our resident roadrunner, and even an occasional black bear as it hightails it across the top of my road, my mongrel dog barking at its heels as I watch with wonder. My work as a travel writer has appeared in publications from The Dallas Morning News to the Robb Report. You can find examples of my travel writing–as well as excerpts from a travel memoir I’m working on–at my other WordPress site, Travelin’ On. What more than that do you need to know? Only that I started this blog with an eye toward collaboration. Got a haiku? Send it my way. . . . I’m all about new visions & voices. Best, Margaret

    And my post the the other day is about a dove, Paloma, from a “lullaby” composed from “haiku-strays”, re-configured as haiku for you:

    she warbles the name
    flapping on her lips
