haiku - Spring sounds

blackbird sings –
morning mist lifts from
city streets.

**********************************
reggae music pours
from wide open windows –
sunflowers bloom.

********************************
kilted bagpiper
skirls a tune for the tourists –
pigeons take flight.

*******************************
gardens buzz with
Spring’s first lawnmowers –
the scent of cut grass.

Spring sounds for One Deep Breath

Wow, J, a whole bouquet of haiku!

Thank you!

And yes, peepers are tiny little frogs... there's a link to the sound of them at the bottom of my post... thanks for stopping by.

These are all wonderful! I can feel and hear spring in them.

We just experienced that last one in our own yard over the weekend--who knew it was rife with poetry!

These are filled with sounds and sights. I could hear the flutter of pigeon wings ;)

Beautiful. Reminds me of the springtime I spent in Scotland with my family.

michelle said...

The last is my favorite!

Marcia said...

Sunflowers blooming to reggae just felt right, but I want to live where bagpipes herald spring. That is a very different spring sound.

Brian said...

Late to comment, but I read these yesterday as well.

I like the last one. :)

Sandy said...

They are all lovely, I didn't think of music coming from indoors, and certainly not about bag pipers in the street. That would be wonderful!

When you visited my site, you said you didn't know the mockingbird, here is a photo and clip. I added to my post today.

I love to discover new words. 'skirls' is a good one. Thanks. Nice humorous finish.

Becca said...

Love these~especially the "skirls" from the bagpipes! Only in Scotland would that come to mind ;)

Nice haiku! I loved the imagery of them all, but especially the last - fresh-cut grass - mmmmm.
Hugs!

The bagpiper image made me chuckle

Unfolding Rose said...

wide open windows so capture the essence of warmer weather...the muffled sounds of winter are sharper. reggae is perfect...an invitation to summer! all the little things that give the sense and scents of the season are in your haiku (not sure how to pluralise this!)

wonderful vignettes. All but the bagpiper could have been my own neighborhood (I would only have to change blackbird to mockingbird and reggae to norteno).
