How many doves leave
songs in the indigo bush
before winter ends?

  1. Even though Mourning Doves are a common bird around here I enjoy watching their loving antics this time of year. Their song is found all around my garden during the warm months and even during warmer days during winter.

  2. can i hang my mourning songs in their care?

  3. I have never been able to see one of the doves you write about in your haiku words, but I definitely see the song this one left! 🙂

  4. Perhaps a symphony is hidden in the Indigo.

  5. Countless are the dove songs, recorded in the passing clouds…

  9. Now there’s a question.

  10. All birds here leave their songs in the leaves of trees. Sadly, Autumn arrives, the leaves fall and….silent Winter ensues.
