childhood song —
the rhythm of women
Reminiscent of Basho's haikai verses about agrarian songs.
I'm reminded of bird's song during certain farming activities, from the human whistles of red kites (my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's home in Buckinghamshire, England) to Queensland, Australia, with this two line haiku:
into the evening a tractor harvests

Thank you for your kind comments, Kala, Alan, Harris and Nakano san.
This ku is for my (late) grandparents who lived in agrarian Kerala (India) and I can still smell the grain and hear the harvest sounds four decades later!
Alan, thank you for sharing the lovely lovely, willywagtail song.
