Coolness of morning light streaming through clouds silvery, with brilliant thrill of bird whistles. Clean up crews having done their routine work will withdraw, letting the roar of large wheels and the honk in queued horns take over the sounds of morning awakening

a flash of pale blue
from shrubbery to skyward -
the blue bird's silence

  3. Birds and awakenings seem to go together rather nicely, don't you think? I mean, who would want to wake up without the comfort of birdsong?

  6. PS: (A friendly proof-read) Typo? Should be 'crews", not 'crewd'?

  15. When awakening of the other meaning occurs it might be too late for the cleanup crews. Will it be a sudden or a gradual happening?
    Nice finishing Haiku, Gillena.
