Frost beneath my feet
Wild geese chanting overhead
Earth, Man, and Heaven

Many thanks, Mich.
Thank you, Amaya.
It’s a lovely day for a haiku
‘Tis. 😉 Thanks for reading.
Reblogged this on seachranaidhe1.
Many thanks, Derrick.
Stunning. I envy you.
Pssh. Thank you, though. 🙂
Happy St. Patrick’s to you, OG!☘🎉🇨🇮
Same to you. Have a drink for me, will you?
I shared a pint of Guinness with you.😊☘
You’re a good woman, Kathleen. 🙂 Many thanks.
Haicú den scoth! Go mbaine tú sult as an lá, a chara! An mbeidh tú ag amharc ar an rugbaí? 🙂
Well, we didn’t do too badly! 😉
Indeed, I was delighted at the result but I celebrated a bit too hard last night. 😦
Line 2 provides a nice example of the nuances of word choice. While to say that geese are “calling” or “honking” be fine in many contexts, to say that they are “chanting” is much better here.
Thanks very much.
Stunning haiku, Oglach! Love it!
Thank you, Sarah. Next time I will change the geese to Cuban pygmy owls. 😉
There’s a beautiful harmony conveyed in your haiku where animals, human, and the weather come together. Stunning piece. Do you practice Taijiquan?
Yes indeed. I started practicing years ago but the past couple of years it’s become more important to me. I’d go crazy(er) without it. 😉 Miss you, Rose. Thanks for reading.
I like your craziness. Don’t lose it, Oggy. ❤️ I haven’t found my balance, yet. Perhaps I need to take up Taijiquan.
You might be pleasantly surprised at all the things it can help you with,
It’s a beautiful haiku, Oglach 🙂 Tai Chi is a bit different from the other martial arts, I’ve heard. i
It is. It’s based on Yin/Yang theory, and has a deep spiritual component for those who want it. It’s also great exercise. Thanks for reading and commenting, Maniparna.
Oh…ignore the small ‘i’…
A lovely feel to this piece, and kind of magical, because I’ve never experienced it–different hemisphere and climate.
Thanks, Steve. I would switch hemispheres with you right now. 😉
My pleasure, but let me tell you, 40C (two weeks ago) can be challenging. 😄
