TJ’s Household Haiku – Melody & Blue

TJ has a great photo and pair of words for our haiku prompt today!

Melody & Blue

Flock of Birds, Perth, Western Australia

And here is my first response for the photo with the words added. I have opted for the 3/5/3 traditional Japanese haiku form for this first one.

Blue skies filled
With melodious birds
Spring begins

Ritu 2017

And one reflecting exactly how I feel right now, using the 5/7/5 traditional English form.

Singing the blues here
Feeling sorry for myself
Throat infections suck!

    First…beautiful. Second…Oh nooooo!!!! Take heart that a fellow blogger is also coughing up his lungs with the “Dreaded Lurgy” in far off Aussieland. 🙂

    I trust your throat is feeling better now? And you’ve not had the horror of becoming a giraffe…
