Kookaburra laughs /
feeding up in that treetop /
in the front garden ///

Green, yellow flashes /
swooping for insects and bugs /
the lorikeet wind ///

#haiku

Fluttered wing singing /
over suburban landscape /
thru the concrete heart ///

Cockerels crowing /
morning sunshine in Adelaide /
musical moments ///

Sudden rush of air /
bird wings flutter, startle me /
Kookaburra laughs ///

Water in Fourth Creek /
will flush out River Torrens /
clean up the river ///

Eucalyptus tree / sways in the hot Aussie sun / Kookaburra rests ///

#haiku

Leaves shake and quiver /
a ghostly roar fills the air /
the wind is awake ///

Demon call cries out /
birds scramble through the tree tops /
kookaburra laughs ///

Thursday Twitter

Pink-necked galahs shriek /
cracking sweet gumnuts with glee /
Adelaide breakfast

In Adelaide, gum trees bend gently in a gully breeze,
lorikeets squabble and laugh
over crunchy gum nuts and tender shoots.
Hawks fly above.

Cars drone from nearby /
mosquito melody buzz /
wildlife of the night ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Insects hug the ground /
swarming in veiled abandon /
predatory host ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Orange-breasted tweets /
noisy lorikeets in trees /
aboreal breakfast ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Velvet, orange, pink /
light fades from your closing eyes /
sunset of my life ///

#haikuwordgame #haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Satellite dishes /
perched on roofs like stalking birds /
surveying the world ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Starlight in tree trunk /
call out the local firetruck /
a tree wall on fire ///

#haikuwordgame
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Such a sunny day /
here in downtown Adelaide /
jet planes cruise to land ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Squally, rolling clouds /
bring good fortune and clear skies /
a rainbow rises ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Blowing boughs bending /
gully winds cruise from the hills /
gentle garden breeze

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A dreary, wet day /
autumn gray in Adelaide /
the rain hides my tears ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Boughs crack in strong wind /
clouds roll hastily away /
shadows are passing ///

#haiku

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The twitter of birds /
has stopped many from sleeping /
sweet dreams if you can ///

#haiku

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Lorikeets chatter /
up in the highest branches /
life is just a game ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The rain stops briefly /
birds peck in holes and puddles /
breakfast is soggy ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Parakeets playing /
chasy against each other /
hunting for breakfast ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Blackbirds a twitter /
shrugging their massive shoulders /
in their pecking order ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Blackbirds feed and peck /
a wise owl hoots distantly /
bunny wabbit hops ///

#haiku #goodmorninghaiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Pink-breasted pigeons /
chasing breakfast up the street /
now in the gum trees ///

#haiku
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

The jackdaw’s rough tweets /
terrorise the lorrikeets /
stand over urban streets ///

#haiku #poetry
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Afternoon birds rest / waiting for their evening feast / frenzy of insects ///
