Written for:  Carpe Diem Special #212 Joyce Lorenson’s 4th “a glint of mica”
As you all know the goal of the CD-Specials is to create a new haiku in the same tone, sense and spirit as the one given. 

a glint of mica
the swaggering strut
of a raucous magpie             © Joyce Lorenson

screaming peacock
walking around the farm
like a watchdog                       © Chèvrefeuille (our host)


Here is my attempt:

squawking from a tree 
long sweeping feathers
bossy bluejay


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
