Haiku challenge: Rush & Lark

My kind of word choice this week for Ronovan’s haiku challenge


River meanders

music among the rushes

from lark ascending.


Autumn wind rushes

bowling clouds across the sky

where the skylark sings.


Rushes bend and sway

murmur with the wind’s wild breath

foiling the lark’s song.

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. Thank you. We don’t get skylarks here, the habitat isn’t right, but the estuary of a little river in Wales where I spent childhood holidays was thronging with skylarks.
