rain bathes ground
pond no longer parched
robust life springs forth
awake sunlit wings
among the cat tails
free spirits on the wind
from lakeside prisons
freedom in rebirth
white Parchment awaits
stains Akimibi’s cloak
dying in red and yellow-
in chilled air
hand holds stay
turns into snow flurries
First I’d like to give credit to James Kahn for writing verses 4, 6 and 7, also teaching me something new.
I found this form of poetry extremely difficult. One must form an image using the least amount of syllables.
One thought must lead into the next in a progression on the subject. In Japanese poetry less is more or more is less, whichever way you want to look at it.
If you wish to learn more about this form of poetry, I have provided informative links.

black white natural attire
plume tightly slicked back
cravat flares at base of neck
polished boots reflect rippling

Home of Lukas Kondraciuk Photography, provided me with the photo as inspiration. If you’re a birdwatcher or just like birds you should visit. He also provides links with information about the birds. The captions are funny, they will quack you up. Oh my it’s catchy!
Sometimes one sense can trigger all the others. The sounds of the birds singing in the distance was what I omitted. I’ve posted a link below that you may take a few minutes, close your eyes, relax and listen to the music of nature. 😊 🌎✌🏻❤️
