"Haiku" #334

Don't confuse my "Haiku" with genuine Haiku. (see here)

Apparently not, just one - and now a blackbird trying to tale over the nest. (They're leaving the tree in place for now.)

Shadow
be with you!

You, the poetry master, can teach me; genuine Haiku as opposed to artificial Haiku? I hope the dove found a friend even if it is a blackbird.

Yeah, I asked for that, I guess. The intention was not so much to teach, just to acknowledge that I've been taking a few liberties with the haiku; taking its form, discarding its spirit. Just thought I ought not to mislead.

Titus
I wonder...

Carl
I'll go along with that - got to, haven't we?

Adrian
Thanks

Theodore
Great. I dig it!
