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:
“Haikus at the end were tiny diamonds.” (Kathryn Meyer Griffith, long time author)
“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:
