Bird Haiku by Michael G. Smith

still raven
on the bike trail
wild roses blooming

starling versus bluebird bird house

raccoon leg hanging out of the hole mated flickers wait

cat’s back turned
one-legged magpie
eats from the bowl

a killdeer
in the vacant lot
her song lingers

curious towhee
looks down at me
changing the oil

garage clear
two sparrows
steal string

woodpecker snags
a grasshopper
out of the air
