Mac Adoo's Wings #23 Poem a Day

Recommended Posts


Mac Adoo's Wings

The excited stutter of simulated flight
creates an explosion
of moult-dust,
downy under-feathers
and one long, strong, brilliantly green quill
plucked in agitation.

The staccato flapping
causes the fall-out to drift
cloaking her corner of the room
to be captured later
by my tired Dustbuster.
                   ---Judi Van Gorder

I'm cheating, this is an old one that I want to archive here. My poem for the day are the haikus below written after reading this old poem and remembering...

she barks like a dog
when strangers approach
watch parrot

loud bark from parrot
standing sentry at the gate,
dogs enjoy night off
