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

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.
