I love blue jays and I love your gorgeous poem, Lonna. You've captured their high energy and wild beauty perfectly. I'm especially enamored with your middle line - such color and movement brought to vibrant life! Congratulations on your wonderful win, my talented friend. Warmest wishes always.. ~Susan

Lonna, you've captured in one short haiku the volume, the personality, the brilliant color, and the restless nature of this favorite bird of mine. LOVE the middle line especially. Congrats on your win today, my friend ~ John

John, you are so kind. I love your comments every time because they have validity and give me encouragement at the same time. Thank you dear Poet friend. It's one of my favorite avian characters to observe.

This gives me the feels of a hawk noticing something with "eyes squawk shadows deep", also the imagery of an aircraft :) Congratulations!

I like how the line 'wings like blue water splashing' conveys both the movement and color of water - wonderful entry for the contest!

Thank you Michelle. I fancy Blue Jays, they are such a restless lot of screamers. So fun to watch.

This poem might even be prettier than the bird, and I am a bird lover, gorgeous ink! If it's for the contest, add date, too, remove and resubmit just in case (I want to see this one on the podium) ;), xomo!
