talking in bird language…

(haiku)

rooster
nature’s morning call
crows

hen party
heckle about this and that
cluck

Hummingbird
speed of its wings
hum

seagulls
gorging over litter
squawk

raven
boasting black beauty
caws

In this area in Quebec it is forbidden to hunt wild turkey past noon because they are more vulnerable…it is a time they are often found napping in a tree.

afternoon freedom
safe from hunters
turkeys yelp

Humans talk (communicate) in varied ways…

(senryu)

business meetings
teaching, lecturing
no talking in class

baby’s first words
talking gibberish
toddlers understand

adolescents
instant message texting
teen talk

music
lyrics soothe the heart
love songs

tête à tête
holding hands lovingly
warm caresses

sexual healing
communion of bodies
gentle moans

matters of the heart
talking softly
language of love
