Haiku for Totally Optional Prompts and One Single Impression

Birds gather
suspended in sky like clouds
going home

-----

Since one prompt was 'time to leave' and the other was 'spectacle' I thought they worked well for the same subject, birds flying south for winter.

I can sense the scale of the migration, when you say 'like clouds'. I see an expanse that fills the sky.

A wonderfully poetic description of what birds do in the fall.

Since I love birds, this poem really appeals to me. What a nice analogy. Well done!

Makes me think of the Canada geese I love so much. Thanks for this and for participating in OSI.
