Haiku – Feather


Does a bird in flight
notice when a feather falls,
to rest upon moss.

  1. What a delicate haiku – as soft as the feather and the falling of the feather too. This sense of dislocation – the loss of the feather – gives a really unusual perspective to the act of the bird losing a feather, for we usually think of the feather and not the bird.

  2. What an interesting image and idea. This poem caused me to think of something I’ve never thought before – about the bird that loses the feather. Thank you for speaking a fresh perspective.
