bones 6 – a haiku journal.

DARK-EYED JUNCO by Jonathan Skinner / Barzakh


caught in a still

picture of moss

falls and creeks

eyes take us

to the sound

in branch tips

the trees make

as they bend, twist

& whip the blue

stands of red

scaly pine sway

to and fro

dead snags

creak, unlock

a silver tooth

fox calls


owl voice

the trees

make speeches

in their bark

the green

new life

through which

white tailed

junco soldiers

move quietly
