The pond at Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona reflects trees growing at its edges.

Morning by morning
a blackbird comes to the pond
to drink and then sing.

  1. Our black-feathered friends are singing and chanting to us dear MMT! It is a song that fills my heart!

  2. Lovely message from the black bird feathered friends ~ divine photo too.

    Moment by moment,

    A ShutterBug Explores,
    aka (A Creative Harbor)

  3. I hear the song. He sings a song of gratitude for the water, for the trees, for his happy heart. This haiku is so special.

  4. A welcomed visitor
    Happy weekend

    much love…

  5. Creatures that drink and sing are always welcome, everywhere! Love the haiku dear. Have a great weekend. Be warm, be safe, be well. Hug from Holland

  6. How lovely is a blackbird’s song! I can almost hear it sing in your poem.

  7. Yes I agree – there’s is something about what Khaya is saying here – about the structure of these three lines, the last one in particular that delivers a subliminal echo of bridsong… Which is Great!

  8. That’s nice. A very nice image on my cold gray morning.

  9. It’s snowing here at the moment, huge clumps of the white stuff… And on my bird feeder, a starling takes advantage of not having to search too hard for food. From where I sit, its wings look almost black. After reading your poem, I could practically hear his song.

    It’s 4 degrees in my world this morning,. Brrr. I like to think of the blackbird, stopping by for a drink and greeting the day with a song!

  11. Mmmm! Perfection – of experience and writing.

  12. Most blackbirds I’ve known have been bold and friendly daring to approach just case I give them some treats to eat.

  13. I needed to hear that bird, read this wonderfully simplistic work tonight. Thanks, Teach.

  14. Susie Clevenger

    Simple but elegant poetry

  15. such morning rituals are a baptism of light!
