Alone With Myself – Tanka


alone with myself

flashing in and out

of crimson flowers

a woodpecker’s red cap

softening my mood

    1. Thank you. The red bellied woodpecker was vocalizing repeated “kuerrrs”. Not recognizing the bird’s song . I looked through red blooms, and spotted it’s red cap as it hopped from branch to branch. What a surprise when I discovered it to be a woodpecker. I relate woodpeckers to the drumming sounds of its beak against tree wood, not that of birdsongs.
