luring me into the night
longest day –
sliver of a moon
pokes through clouds

a moth’s aflutter
zig zags, a cantankerous
mocking bird in tow
as they head to the meadow
gap closes, this will not end well
For Frank Tassone’s Weekly Haikai Challenge..poet’s choice. I used “Meadow”
I’m grateful for life and breath
as I greet each new day
I know it wasn’t promised

I noticed on my walk yesterday that the neighborhood birds seems giddy. Take offs and landings have a different energy. They are moving around in larger cliques. A lot of camaraderie, a lot of chatter. Were they always this loud? They have all of outdoors to themselves! No humans disrupting their gatherings. No horns honking. They are reveling in this new found quiet. No droopy faces here.

Going for a walk these days has me feeling like I’m up to no good. Like I was sneaking out; all the time keeping everyone at a distance. This lovely setting sun was a welcome diversion 😊.
