Fair Dinkum Haiku 0102: Bathes.


Veiled by morning mist.
Cheeping bird Bathes in tarn.
Delicate wings beat.

Hi Windsmoke,
Very nice.
We have a very light shower of rain this morning and the birds are loving it. I can hear a heap of different birds all singing away as I'm typing. :)

Lovely image heere, Windsmoke. I enjoy haiku for the sense it offers my imagination. I see this in an instant.

And don't they love their baths. Thanks Windsmoke.

I can picture this, a quiet mountain side, a lake, the bird dipping and splashing. I need to put a birdbath where I can see it from my window.

I learn new words I can never slip into a conversation. But, I'm glad to have them.

G' Day BEACH: Glad you got the intended image :-).

G' Day MAGS: We had a downpour this morning about 7am, i think all the birds were hiding until it stopped, sadly i didn't hear any singing :-).

G' Day ELISABETH: Haiku does stimulate the imagination :-).

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: Yep, they certainly do enjoy a bath :-).

G' Day RIVER: A birdbath is a good idea just think of all the photos you can take of the birds that visit and post 'em on Sunday Selections :-).

G' Day JOANNE: I reckon learning new words is Bonza :-).

I love lying in bed and listening to the birdsong in the early morning.
Your poem evokes that experience so vividly.
Love it :)

'Tarn' is such an underused word - maybe because not many could use it as well as this!!

G' Day YGRAINE: I mainly get birdsong just as the sunsets when all the birds are looking to settle down somewhere for the night :-).

G' Day RED: Its a tricky word to use in any type of writing :-).
