Clouds move by,

As a breeze stirs the trees;

Woodpigeons call.

Ashley composed this beautiful, ephemeral hokku.

The photo of the clouds moving across the sky was also composed by Ashley.

Information on wood pigeons can be found here; to hear the call of a wood pigeon, go here.

I enjoy translating my observations into hokku, as well as reading the hokku of others. Hope you enjoy your slow-walk through our Hokku Garden!

    1. Many thanks Edo! Because we write hokku within the season, we notice the seasons changing. Not everyone does and the clouds drifting by felt like a good metaphor. Glad you liked it! 🙋‍♂️

  1. A lovely restful hokku even though it speaks of change . . . and of wood pigeons which make me ‘jump out of my skin’ when they clatter about in the trees unexpectedly when I’m out in the woods! 😀
