Poetry Friday: Little Poems of the Week
Hop on over to Linda at TeacherDance. She share a surprise late snow storm and thoughts on 'time'.j
Last week, I went on a field trip to one of my favorite wineries. I was able to photograph a single first bloom. On the weekend, I discovered busyness in the hanging planter. It was also MudPuddle Saturday(a group of women write about twice a month), I was able to draft a couple poems based on prompts.
outside my window
questions us,When is spring?
Hummingbirds dart, sip nectar
the fairy flowers

Little partiers, the bushtits
gather at the suet block
The high scratchy calls
twitter-tweet the location
A flash mob hangs upside down,
dining. All are welcome.

Love that 'flash mob', Jone. I agree, the birds are busy! And I'm happy you found that first bloom. Nothing here yet, but maybe when the snow is melted? Your Poetry Month goals are very enticing! It's going to be a special month!

What a delightful poem about bushtits. What a funny name, so just that arouses interest from the beginning. And Flash-mob just adds to it. I enjoy your haiku!

I, too, love your bushtits poem, Jone, but hummingbirds are my favorite birds. We don't have them in Switzerland so poems that show them 'dart' and 'sip' make me happy. :)

Lovely menagerie of bird poems and tidbits Jone. I looked up the Bushtits too, and they are little balls of fluff, they remind me of a baby chick. Love the apt call to the Junco's. And what an inviting National Poetry Month lineup you have, thanks for all!

I love that flashmob around the suet feeder!

Jone, that flashmob image is going to stick with me. So perfect! Thank you for your delightful poems.

These are fun little moments, Jone! I'm looking forward to your April interviews, and I must say your MudPuddle Saturdays sound delightful.
