Freebirds Haiku

I was sitting one evening last Summer,  looking out over the sea,  as the sun was beginning to set, when I spotted a flock of seabirds flying out from the land and out over the sea without hesitation or hindrance.

An even shorter Poem

Swallows gathering always signals the end of summer for me, just as when they reappear, I feel they are heralds of warm days ahead. I jotted down this haiku at the end of last summer. FAREWELL HAIKU Swift Swallows Sweeping Soaring By Bedroom Window Summer Almost Spent (c) Billy Dunphy 11/10/2014
