Done for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie – Heeding Haiku with HA. This week we are to look around, find the birds, make an eye-contact with them and let them gaze into us so that we can touch upon their wondrous beauty as well and then, write a haiku or tanka or both featuring them. Quite interesting I can hardly see myself going to a bird and letting it gaze into me. I’m pretty scared.
these stars in your eyes
as you look down from your perch
whisper to my soul
calming anxious fears
I close my eyes, take a leap
we glide over peaks
I fly without wings
holding dear the memory
of mesmeric eyes
revealing ancient secrets
we touch the sky on love’s wingsCopyright © Celestine Nudanu 14/05/14)
I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom.
Stunning Celestine XD
Thank you Candice. It was a bit of a challenge since I’m still in the office and nowhere near a bird!
Ooh I really like it-very nice imagery!
Thanks so much 🙂
You’re very welcome ^^

Such a beautiful set… Amazing. You know what, I love making eye-contact with a pigeon… and its eyes seem to look within you and then sometimes when it nods, it appears to be like an understanding that has passed between us.. 🙂
You have a love affair with birds Hank. 🙂 Thanks for the lovely compliment 🙂
