Swallows: Three Haiku

Today, on Ekphrastic: writing and art on art and writing,  as part of their 20 poem challenge, I have three haiku to go with a gorgeous picture of swallows.

The artwork is  “Swallows” by Benjamin Chee Chee

Ekphrastic 2 Swallows



frail beauty—

scissoring the sky

on indigo wings




hope . . . soaring on wingless winds




taking leave—

gathering courage

as you fly




My thanks to editor, Lorette C. Luzajic, for including these haiku.
