The only wind to wrinkle this pond's face, the bird's wings.

great blue
across this silent pond
a breeze

Good it isn't the wrinkles of time?

Magyar said...

Thank you all, my friends!
__I'm not a "bird watcher;" I enjoy watching all animals and their daily functions. I am, though, constantly amazed by
-birds-, and the differances among them. Just count the wing beats of a Great Blue Heron and match them [and size, of course] to those of a Hummingbird!

... and yet leave a landscape as it was before... thx Dev.

As always, D, your words take me right to a certain place in time and I'm transfixed.

Gorgeous, Doug - A very special haiku!

blue pond
only rippled by
bird's wings

Hi Magyar,

I mean your preface should offer material for a ku - variating the subject.

Best wishes

We have blue herons on the ponds on our golf course. They look so majestic!
