Full Circle:

I am reminded that the end of my first year of this blog is close now as the winter flocks of Golden plovers have returned. I saw them for the first time today. I remember writing about them in some of the first haiku I wrote last year. It is always a joy to me to welcome them back as they circle above my head. It fascinates me that they always return to exactly the same fields, as they probably have for hundreds, maybe thousands of years. These are the great cycles of nature, the intelligence within, instinct, genetic memory, inexplicable, wonderful…….magical.

Golden plover clouds,

Wheeling and circling above-

Back down from the moors.


About Basho Barr

Inspired by the great Japanese Haiku master, Matsuo Basho, I try to capture a daily moment in a small but perfectly formed Haiku.
