College Bound

This week’s haiku prompt challenge words, Bird & Red, immediately caught my attention because my favorite bird is the cardinal and I’ve had a picture I planned to use a few weeks ago – waiting in the wings (no pun intended).  However, as I started playing with the words my brain was drawn to more of a metaphorical haiku for several of my friends that have just sent their first born off to college.  So, I ended up with two haiku for week #59.

College Bound
Flying from their nests,
Non-stop tears and a red nose,
Your babe’s fully grown.

Year Round Beauty
A breathtaking bird,
Beautiful red cardinal.
From winter to fall.

As always, thank you to RonovanWrites for hosting our Weekly Haiku Prompt Challenge.
