Silver Birds, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
Morning silver birds
Rising to fight night’s terrors.
Dawn’s first clouds.
I chose the name Haiku-San as it derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.
You can find more Haiku in my new book of poetry, As Good AS Gold:
“This collection of poems is alive with many canine adventures which makes it perfect for young readers.” (ReadRantRockAndRoll)
As Good As Gold is also available in Large Print, a dyslexia friendly edition:
