budding oaks ~ haiku

 and daffodil nods

hungry goldfinch feeds
while stealthy cat stays inside
glad daffodil nods

budding oaks
celebrate new light

elusive worm moon

elusive worm moon
hidden behind clouds and trees
unruffled owl hunts

on quiet Sunday
lily bows

By some stretch of the imagination,
this may be considered on prompt for Day 9 of napowrimo.net,
which challenges us to write a list poem.  The haiku are my response to
Frank Tassone’s #Haikai Challenge #182-185: Transformation,
which offers this list of kigo:

  1. I was lucky enough to see a Goldfinch yesterday!
    ‘The meaning of the goldfinch signifies abundance and prosperity. It symbolizes the importance of positivity and optimism, and the value of happiness, joy, and simplicity in your life. Just like the crow spirit animal, the goldfinch meaning also points to the need for variety and diversity.’

    A lovely list.

      • I can get some photos… but I always have to enlarge them – I have a picture window that I can get some images from. But you’re right they don’t stay still for long!

        I get quite a few Cardinals, wrens, purple finches, etc. But those yellow birdies stick out! Very nice image.
