    Fascinating! This could be from a jaded point of view, that all birds and their 'noise' sound the same, and possibly annoying.

    Or perhaps the birdsong sounds the magical same as through childhood and young adulthood, and it's good be back, however temporarily.


    cool morning

    poetry lecture
    a distraction of birdsong
    from the open window

    They are the same

    travel is the teacher of this equality of environment…
    The only part who is changeable is
    the traveler…

    Should we,
    Leave and Live

    Jeannie –
    Love this haiku! There are multiple interpretations here but for me it rings of homecoming and the sense of home that our animal neighbors offer by their presence. Thank you for filling me with birdsong!
