    private garden
    sunrays break in
    through locked gates

    Flock of blackbirds
    flying aimlessly-
    splinters of mirror

    I should have known:
    eyes that looked away
    or down

    up and down
    up and down
    the flock of dawn birds fly

    trying and trying
    a fly
    on the window pane

    jolted awake
    a raven fills the seam
    between two dreams

    against grey skies
    seagulls
    seach for an escape

    spider web spanning
    rear view mirror--two bugs snared
    escaping doom

    doves cooing
    louder and louder ...
    and louder than the other

    I really like this haiku. I've always had a thing for blackbirds. :-)

    very deep indeed... the blackbird is already in a garden but is trying to escape its own image in the mirror..
    beautiful

    I've returned twice. Very haunting, in a
    Wonderlandish way, like Alice trying to find
    her way out of an upside down world. Another
    way. . .

    blackbird
    pecks at a gazing ball
    no magic words

    one's worse enemy -

    in the mirror
    what's looking back
