Three Bird Haikus Poem by Clyde King

Three Bird Haikus

Rating: 4.8


The falcon stoops straight
down and in a death grip hooks
an unwary seagull.

The crow lies frozen
in a field of corn shucks.
Food is scarce this year.

A mockingbird sings
in the budding cherry tree
calling his mate.

An amazing combination of three bird haikus.- a falcon, a crow and a mocking bird. A bird watcher's interesting poem.

Very impressing poems, I read birds but see no haiku, but still I enjoyed your marvelous words, dear poet.

A haiku is harder to construct in the 5/7/5 syllable Japanese way. It's not chiseled in stone but it's ok to come close to that. It should use concrete imagery, nature, and allude to a season, ideally. I disagree with you. Have you read the great Basho?
