Haiku challenge: Lift & Plan

My haiku for Ronovan’s weekly challenge.

Lift your eyes skyward,

geese homing, joy in their song,

no plan, just instinct.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I like your haiku very much. I have to tell you that when I saw the first line I said ‘Oh no’ because our first line has three words in common: eyes, lift and skyward (mine is written and scheduled for about 5 hours from now). Despite the three-word overlap, they are quite different (that’s not a surprise :))

    1. Thanks Laine 🙂 We see far more cranes than geese down this way, but the last lot of geese were flying so low I could see all the details of their markings, and their beaks opening and closing as they sang. They looked a bit lost to me.
