What a beautiful photo.
This is absolutely beautiful, Kim. You have such an eye and one hell of a good quick finger! I love you birdie friend. Lots to tell you about the birds I have been hanging out with down here in cold cold Florida. - 4 here tonight...but big warm hearts...Hugs.
oh, dear, kim, you shouldn't take my comments too seriously... mostly i'm just having fun. actually, i was just looking up the "rules for real haiku" the other day because i was considering putting together a poetry and art workshop. a kigo is a seasonal reference word that contains implied and inherent connotations. i included a quote and a link because of the irrepressible teacher in me, but just ignore me and enjoy your own wonderful style of haiku while you eat a scone :) (blah, blah, blah...)"Many haiku seem to focus on nature, but what they are really focusing on is a seasonal reference (not all of which are necessarily about nature). Japanese poets use a "saijiki" or season word almanac to check the seasonal association for key words that they might use in a haiku (thus the haiku is a seasonal poem, and thus often about nature, but does not have to be about nature if the seasonal reference is about a human activity). The season is important for coming up with words to use in a haiku. Because the poem has so few words, simple phrases such as "cherry blossoms" or "falling leaves" can create lush scenes, yet still reflect the feeling of the verse. Moreover, season words also invoke other poems that use the same season word, making the poem part of a rich historical tapestry through allusive variation. In Japanese, the "kigo" or season word was generally understood; "autumn breeze" might be known to express loneliness and the coming of the dark winter season..."http://www.wikihow.com/Write-a-Haiku-Poem
