Photo, New Zealand by Marie-Claire Holmes
For One Deep Breath's dusk/twilight prompt, two haiku:
At twilight's glimmer
birds go home to roost; gulls glide
still no rest for me
sun sets; birds wing their way South
city lights twinkle

Sounds good. Could be even shorter...if you don't mind my saying.
birds wing South
city lights twinkle
Yes, but then it wouldn't be a traditional haiku in the 5-7-5 format, which is what I prefer.

'twilight glimmer" makes me smile. I love the images in this post. Thanks

I like the "g" alliteration in the first haiku. And using "wing" as a verb is lovely in the second. What an amazing photo, btw! I would like to go to that place.

Tara, you have brought serenity to twilight and I know you are just getting started. Great shot and haiku! XXOO

So beautiful to think/see the birds flying home... I am sorry no rest for you! I love the colors in that photo. A restless sea as well?!

Love your use of the words "glimmer" and "twinkle." Gorgeous.

I read your haiku, then ran to the kitchen to take some bread out of the oven. On the way back, noticed a stunning sunset, so I stopped to watch what you wrote about happen. We have crossed into darkness now. Thanks!

Nice reflections of days end.
Why is it that twilight always looks more tranqull over water?
06 February 2007 at 18:35
Both photo and haiku are perfect.

Beautiful photo and lovely haiku. That first is something that I wouldn't have thought of but is so true--the birds (especially the cardinals at dusk) come for a last bite to eat and a drink at the bird bath and then they head "home."
BTW - I love all the banners on your blog. When you changed to the current one it was like a breath of spring.

Lovely poem and photo, Tara.

Love the haikus Love the post on the dress! It was so sweet!I mostly love how many places you have been and the tings you have done. What an interesting life you lead! I still have my "dress" that hangs in my closet Never to be worn by my fat a** again! I love the pictures you post and other bloggers as well. I have a photo I got from a guy in Australia that sits on my computer as a desktop photo. I did however ask permission to use it. It is rude to steal from others and maybe people do not realize this is what they are doing. I hope that is the case. I like to think there are more good than bad people in the world don't you? You have inspired me to take a mosiac class! The lady says once I have mastered her class I can mosiac anything I want!

Relaxing? For me the photo is stirring, the wind, the gathering clouds, the waves.
But perhaps it is stirring me because,
like the birds, I am going home to roost. I am winging my way south and in only a few days I will be in New Zealand - in the twilight.

Photos taken by Marie-Claire are stunningly beautiful and they always match your profound words...

That is... a beautiful and relaxing photo. Now I need to see what you've been nominated for - or what? I slip into radio silence and I miss everything. This is why I have no mind.
But thanks for the beautiful break.
