mating spiral dance
the free falling bald eagles
clear blue lake lies still

    I've seen other birds of prey do this, but I didn't know bald eagles did it as well! Very nice poem illustrating this lovely dance... MC

    Mating dance that causes the waves to stop, rather than crash, is quite a powerfully breathless moment. I like this quite a lot.

    About your comment on Haiku 28. Yes, you're typically not expected to title them, personally I think it kinda gets rid of the "surprise" in the haiku itself, because a lot is revealed in the title already. If you really want to title them, I believe titling them by the first line is a good way to do it. That way you're not spoiling anything. If you're writing haiku that DOESN'T follow 5-7-5 I wouldn't trash it... in my opinion haiku should be about images and content (not syllables).
