On Wednesday, I interviewed Robyn Hood Black. She’s back today with three haiku.
a flag flutters above
Frogpond, Vol. 36:1, Winter 2013
a catbird’s call
hangs in the air
Acorn, No. 30: Spring 2013
my small insights
at the trumpet flower

So much to ponder in that first one of Memorial Day. I enjoyed them all, Robyn. Thank you Jone!
Thank you, Linda – it’s an honor to have poems here today!
Like all three of these — a moment’s hovering, teasing thought. Perfect. 🙂
The flag above its shadow is such an evocative image – wow. But I love your small insights best. 🙂
Love the catbird call hanging in the air–I can hear it!
I’m with Buffy… loving that catbird call just hanging there in the June heat.
That word ‘shadow’ in the Memorial Day haiku carries many meanings, I think. It’s a very open poem, inviting the reader to think. Nice work, Robyn!
All three of these are very evocative.
Thanks to all of you for your thoughts – so nice to read these after a day out. I love that different images can resonate with different folks.
All three are so resonant. I love the shadow in the first one, the hangs in the second one, and the small insights in the third.
A remarkable trio — each so very different…and with such perfectly chosen words and images!
Perfectly chosen words! I can’t pick a favorite. Good job, Robyn!
Hi, Mary Lee and Tabatha! Thanks for the kind comments. Glad you enjoyed.
I think my favorite is the first one. So much meaning hidden in those syllables.
