OF BIRDS & NAMES (A Haiku, A Scifaiku Series & A Dream Haiku)

[digital art by Jonathan Cummings on]

live cam:
the osprey looks all around
from her nest

Click here to see the live cam of osprey on the nest.
It's been an eery exprience every time I've visited the site. I always have the odd sense the bird knows I am watching and is looking right back at me whenever it turns my way. (Yes, there may be activity around the cam, but still...:-D) Now, take that feeling further into positing a sentient and psychic bird-like race, and you have the source of the below scifaiku series I wrote in July of this year:


turn wrestle turn
the hardness cracks
the world rocks open

exhausted mind-search
where is The Keeper

wet wings
tremble in a rush of wind
The Keeper lands

open mouth
greets His bright beauty

The Keeper fills
all emptiness with song
I dream my name

Lastly, here's a haiku about a dream I had a few days after writing "The Naming:"

will be your name
last words heard

Resource: Ten Penny Players, Inc., an arts in education program, is a resourceful site for writing educators, but that's not all that's here -- e.g., be sure to check out "Hello World" to hear some New York City poets read their work.

‘til next time, keep dreaming,

I loved these two! Some of your poetry makes me feel such a connection to you. That's a gift, to make someone feel as though they are inside of your head or heart. I used to think that it was because we had a lot in common. Maybe we do. But now I believe that it’s more because of your writing ability. Thanks for sharing your jigsaw puzzle. I feel that way about my writing too; see what I mean?

Oh, Vera, you do my heart good. I think we do have a lot in common. But I'd sure like to think I communicate that commonality clearly, too. LOL! How's your haiku writing going?
