Yuma Pioneer Cemetery, Yuma, Arizona

Even the blackbird
pauses at the graveyard fence
before moving on.

    Your observances and writing about them enrich my life. Thank you.

  2. I love the pensiveness of your blackbird…

  3. my morning was punctuated with ravens wings whipping the chilly mountain air.

  4. Blackbird singing in the dead of night. . . take these broken wings and learn to fly.

  5. Blackbird flew before I got here. However I know why he paused.

  6. What a beautiful statue that is. I love that even the blackbird stops in reverence.

  7. This is really very contemplative! Even the blackbird is stopped a bit by a graveyard visit.

  8. …as so would I.

    Excellent picture/Haiku association.

  9. Love the hidden depth and wisdom in this 🙂 Beautifully done.

  10. The lives held in a graveyard should give one pause….beautiful!

  11. Perhaps he does and I do, too. Makes me wonder if it is really true?

  12. I read that pause as time to process grief, which we do desperately need.

  13. Beverly Crawford

    A quiet, peaceful wisdom in your haiku. Well done!

  14. Compelling woman. Even birds of death feel it.

  15. If only humans would not consider themselves unique it might be a better world.

  16. Pausing with the blackbird…
