celebrating stories and those who weave them
Just lovely, Tricia--not only for the wonderful use of sound devices (esp. the assonance), but also for seeing common crows in a moment of uncommon elegance.
oh I love those fly into your head while you're walking poems. Yay!
I love haiku. Lovely!
Love the updrafts of your writing. (Hugs)Indigo
Laurel: Ah, I'm glad you see what I saw. I was startled when the light glinting off their feathers looked like velvet. That sparked the haiku.Jan: This is my favorite way to write haiku, just be walking and have the words form from what I see.Marcia: Thank you!Indigo: Aw, that's such a wonderful comment. Thanks!
My make haiku wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
That's beautiful! More than the words, I get a very strong image in my head with your haiku.
simple and so lovely!
*sigh* Beautiful! :-)
Linda: Thank you!Domey: Oh, that's wonderful that you see the image. :)Christina and ShannonO: Thank you so much, ladies!
Ah, nothing like a random haiku to brighten a day. Keep them coming! :)
Very nice!(Guess you don't live in Arkansas, though.);-)
Black velvet ... love it.

Beautiful! May the updrafts take you far above the ravens. :)Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow
Corey: Oh, I love it when you like my haiku!Kathryn: No! I don't. Those poor blackbirds. I'm in California, and I think you are too. Do you remember the crow die-off some years ago from West Nile virus? All of them disappeared from my town, but they've come back.Donna: They really looked like that. sighGoldenEagle: I'm guessing you like lots of birds. :D Me, too.
Liza: Well, at least I'm trying my wings. ;)Susan: So glad you like!Jules: Oh, I'd love to fly up and up. Sometimes I watch hawks dipping, diving, soaring and long to have that power.
This is so ethereal Tricia..:)
That was lovely, Tricia! I don't think I've ever written a haiku, but you manage to do it so effortlessly. And a beautiful photograph to accompany it. All your posts make me wish I lived near you. You seem like such a peaceful person.
Scraps of black velvet - such stunning imagery. I'm moved to seek an updraft of my own.
L'Aussie: Ethereal! What a lovely word for it. Thank you so much.Carolina: I have to work at being peaceful, but I find peace in nature. It's always there someplace. I wish you were here to walk with me. :)As for the haiku, I received some great advice years ago from a woman who started one of the first haiku magazines in the West. My love of nature combined with her tips probably helped it become a form I slip into naturally.Viva: *grins* That makes me happy. Maybe we'll meet each other out there soaring.
lovely word choice once again!
I hope the updrafts take you to beautiful new worlds in the New Year!
