twilight trees
birds go in and out
of song

    A lovely image — and very satisfying on more than one level as well.

    Always a sucker for dusk/twilight poems.

    autumn twilight . . .
    swan shapes separate
    for the lone boatman

    Beautiful Kala

    in a hole
    through birdsong drips

    Excellent haiku, Kala. I see it right up there with Basho's "sound of water" haikai.
