This week at the Haiku Foundation the Haiku Dialogue column was continuing the theme of finding peace and contemplation, in the great outdoors with curious donkeys (and there was a photo of donkeys included for inspiration), but Marietta McGregor, the editor, indicated that haiku could be written about other animals as well.
Since up to two haiku can be submitted, this pedometer geek writer chose to write two haiku, one about donkeys and the other about blue jays. Of the two, Marietta McGregor chose this haiku for inclusion in this week’s column, and it is as follows:
the donkey hangs
with the llamas
~Nancy Brady, 2021
Thanks Marietta for selecting one of my haiku. It was based on a local park. The park includes a farm with various barnyard animals including llamas.
To read all of the haiku about donkeys and other animals, check out www.thehaikufoundation.org under Haiku Dialogue. There are some excellent haiku along with commentary on several of them by the editor.
