October Farewells

migrating swallows
break in waves across the sun
sobbing their goodbyes

My response to Carpe Diem Special (2nd guest) Kala Ramesh’s “sunbirds peck”

Chèvrefeuille has brought us the first CD Special by our second guest Kala Ramesh, a haiku poet from India who was also featured last year.

howling wind —
an autumn note within
the bamboo flute

sunbirds peck
the tumbling river notes . . .
evening raga 

falling leaves . . .
if only sorrows could be
contained in a palm
