Haiku for Hidden Habitats

Haiku for Hidden Habitats

Mournful doves coo
     Bullfrogs call from tall green reeds
         Traffic rushes by

Fox quietly treads
     Rabbits from their warrens peak
        Traffic rushes by

Snake moves soundlessly
    the hawk glides on wind whispers
         Traffic rushes by

Shy yellow flutters
     Doe statues stand in the field
        Traffic rushes by

Traffic rushes by
      Unaware of hidden gifts
          Precious habitats

Written after walking in 
    open space near a highway

    A nice observation while walking near a highway and very powerful images to convey your thoughts, Barbara

    Barbara, this is really superb! Yeah, you brought to life these images for me....I have felt this, and seen this exact phenomenon. The end-line repetition in the first 3 Haiku works well for you....then you open up the last Haiku with the repeated end-line. Love it! Chris.

    Those folks who are rushing past these beautiful gifts of nature will never know what they missed. Only a talented poet like you could make such an observation. A round of applause for this great haiku series! Love, Carolyn
