I learned a little, today, about a pretty bird from Australia. They’re pretty poetically inspiring when you give them a little thought.
Smells of mountain streams
With tastes of nature’s bounty;
Air caresses, water sprays,
As kingfisher swoops.
Circling round the lake below,
Shiny fish eating.
These three haiku are related only by their subject, the kingfisher, and that they were inspired by the awesome prompt at Carpe Diem.
See if you can spot my attempt at writing for the distinct senses: smell/taste/hearing, touch/feel, & sight. I’m consciously trying to incorporate those elements to bring another dimension to my haiku. I hope it works!
