House Wren Haiku






House wren, originally uploaded by Andi Sibley.


June morning

the house wren's endless chatter

a second cup



This little guy wakes me up and keeps at it all day long. His nest is in the birdhouse on the porch. I know it's summer when I take my second cup of coffee on the porch with him.



The Friday Poetry Roundup is over at Carol's Corner. Enjoy!

Oh - I LOVE this poem and the photo! Thanks for sharing. I'm so happy to have nesting wrens on the back patio this year, too. :0)

I love the last line of your haiku -- so suggestive.

Great image Andi! I've been enjoying coffee on the porch with the birds every morning this week!

Great photo!

And huzzah for the second cup of coffee on the porch with wren-song!!

I'm moving classrooms, so I didn't much get my first day of freedom on the first day out. I'll enjoy leisurely mornings tomorrow and Sunday (and no lessons to plan or papers to grade -- WOOT!!) then get back to the moving on Monday.

Beautiful photo of the wren. I remember when I used to stay with my cousins in the Philippines I would always wake up to the sweet chirping of the birds outside. Simple life. Thanks for sharing your haiku! =)

I believe you just wrote a terrific description of a very nice vacation. It's that "second cup" that got me. Thanks Andi.
