Birdsong



caged bird
sings song of clouds
free bird winks

free bird
sings song of golden cage
caged bird sighs

breaking dawn
cuckoo plays the flute
time for school

soothing dusk
melodious birds gather
seeds of peace


This Haiku is shared with Carpe Diem and the Prompt is Birdsong.

  10. There is truth in there.

    "caged bird
    sings song of clouds
    free bird winks

    free bird
    sings song of golden cage
    caged bird sighs"
