Haiku 38

First published in 50 Haikus Issue 5, Volume 1

 

midday heat
the water song
of magpies

 

Composition notes:

The impetus for this poem comes from the flocks of magpies that come and sit under our veranda in the summer heat and drink the water we leave for them. They have a beautiful bird call which I decided was their water song.

 

Thanks to Ashley Capes for comments and suggestions.
