Daily Haiku: Shadow Bird

In this urban daily haiku, “Shadow Bird.”

A soft coo, from broken branches, a sky yielding a night call. Darkness oozing its lullaby. I watch as the night time kisses the day on the cheek of time. Stars awaken in the black twinkle brighter with the blackness. Warmth fades to cool summer night. A daily haiku and digital art piece flirting with the night.

Urban Daily Haiku: Shadow Bird

dead branches upward.
waning sky fading yellow.
feathered silhouette.

  1. I love the art work. It appeared to me as if a dove sitting up on the branch.. The morning Sun is about to dawn and the moment for the world to discover the bird of Peace up there.. It has always been there. We just didn’t nurture it, didn’t acknowledge it, didn’t embrace it.. Because when the light was deem our vision blurred and the dark silhouette scared us and confused us! But cheers! it is dawning..:)
