Friday Haiku

Hawk

It’s Friday! I thought I’d share some haiku inspired by my recent vacation. So that means that they won’t be as library-centric. Too bad. ūüėČ However, they will be more classical. Haiku are supposed to be about nature and the fleeting nature of life rather than the hustle and bustle of a public library. I love how short and focused they are, no matter what they are about though!¬†

Harrying the Hawk 

The Sparrow defends its eggs; 

Screaming its anger. 

_____________________________________ 

Turkey along the road. 

Heedless of danger; searching 

for food to feed young. 

_____________________________________ 

Songs of lust and love; 

Tree frogs look for mates all night 

Singing: Peep! Peep! Peep!
