Haikai challenge: bird haiku

Looking through Martha Magenta’s haiku for Frank Tassone’s weekly challenge, I was particularly struck by this one:

dawn tide
rolling up the beach
a wave of sanderlings

The Heron’s Nest, Volume XXI, Number 3: September 2019


My haiku on the same theme:


thrush in a tree

still winter bare

a tissue of 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.
