Longer Haiku

This is one I wrote in February, when I still thought I would have time to take the Poetry 101 Class.

My window looks on
Icycled holly and pine trees
Bird feeders between

Hogging the feeders
Croaking like rusty hinges
Voracious starlings

Cardinals, titmice
Know my face at the window
Startled starlings flee

My little friends feed
Until rousted again by
Brazen black starlings


Writing 201: Haiku

Red leaves wrapped in ice

Life frozen, mute, suspended

Like insects in amber
