One Deep Breath-Spring Sounds

I love waking up to the joyful conversation of birds in early spring...you can tell they're excited about nesting, loving the warm breeze, and looking forward to a tasty breakfast of plump worms (yum!)


spring sunrise
bird's chorus sings
joyful alleluia's

Equally joyous are the sounds of children's voices from the elementary school down the street,
raised in excitment at the promise of warmer days to play outside, and spring vacation coming soon.


eager young voices
all a-twitter

Such beautiful haiku to read on a lovely spring day. I loved them both.

Two very welcome sounds of spring. I love hearing the birds in the morning also; the cardinal especially has such a joyous song to sing in spring, and sometimes I swear our blue spruce out front could lift off if all the birds unseen among its branches were to take flight at once.

Some much-needed cheerful haiku on a blustery day here.

It is fun to hear the laughing and playing of children! Like birds, they greet each new day with wonder and joy!
Just beautiful, Becca!

I like that you used the word twitter for the children.

The theme of your poems is so universal-- birds and kids always twitter when happy.

Sounds wonderful! Don't know what our birds are thinking today, we are getting a snow storm.
