Very nice Bob!  Enjoyed your bird related poetry whether haikus or haiku.

Subject: Haikus

As the November migration cools off, and before the CBC season heats up,
I've been fooling around with  haikus. (Is the plural of haiku "haikus" or
just "haiku?") Lest the University of Missouri take offense, each one is in
some way related to birds.

Incidentally, the pelican haiku is a variant of one I posted earlier in
response to another, very nice haiku about pelicans, posted by another
subscriber.
The first spring flowers
poke through dead leaves, gaping mouths
in a warm, dry nest.

Fog obscures white gulls
standing mutely on the roof
of the old boathouse.

As rain drops glisten,
the Wood Thrush’s flute-like song
proclaims a new peace.

Pelicans spiral upward,
white snowflakes of September,
returning to God.

Late November rains
leave puddles on bare brown fields
after the birds leave.
