The fabulous Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect is hosting the Poetry Friday community today.
Renee La Tulippe has an explanation for Poetry Friday on her blog, No Water River.
Do you ever have days or weeks where you have a lot of questions? It's been that way for me this week. This morning (Thursday morning) I stepped outside and saw the clouds. And as I took the photo, the crow appeared. A gentle reminder to breathe and slow down.
I will miss next week. My college pals and I are heading to Palm Springs to celebrate a Golden Anniversary: 51 years of friendship.

Loving your crow comma, Jone. Sounds like you will have a little comma this week, with your friends. Enjoy!

Have a marvelous reunion, Jone. I, too, love that 'crow comma'! Another little gift from the sky!

Love the photo. I immediately thought of commas. And the single crow. You've captured the beauty of this early day in you haiku. The last line is a lovely turn.

A crow comma is a good reminder to pause. I'm finding solace lately in watching the hummingbirds at the feeder. Have a fun reunion next week!

Wonderful to have friendships for so long a time… Thanks to you and crow for this feathered-sky pause, which is always welcome!

Jone, I love the pause at the end or your poem. Capturing the crow in the sky is a good feat but then putting your thoughts to words gave me the inspiration to start my day with ease not rush.

The crow comma. :)

Oh my, Jone. The photo, the haiku, the "crow comma" reminding us to pause, take a deep breath, breathe, slow down, listen, look, feel are all beautiful and I love them! This haiku is a great one for your new calendar, right?
