A Calendar of Haiku - December
An early morning walk down our lane in the December snows of last year - a Wren sings loudly from the briar by the field gate. Another churrs angrily from moss covered stones haphazardly filling a gap in the hedge ...
drifting snow ...
shattering the silence,
a wren sings
Read (or play) the Haiku out loud, and listen to the startlingly loud song of the Wren.
A sneak preview of what I hope will become a monthly series of posts for next year.
