on wings of spring



paddling of ducks

mallard hatchlings learn to swim

fresh pack of quackers


plump covey of quail

rippling waves of prairie grass

breast speckled feathers


homing honks echo

a skein of canada geese

unravels the sky

    Three fun haikus, a trilogy Asian response; cool. Each one, as they should, could stand alone, but your avian thread works well. I dig the second haiku the most.

    On wings of spring….I am looking forward to seeing those new baby birds and all kinds of creatures unraveling the sky ~ Well done Lynn ~
