Eating Alone



Bright eyes mesmerized


Twitter leaves her unimpressed


He flies off to eat


She chooses to eat alone


Who wants to eat with a twit

Our Haikai challenge from Frank Tassone was to write a Haiku or Tanka for Haiku Saturday, using the word Twitter, referring to the birds of spring.  These Cardinals were posing on my bird feeder this afternoon just staring into each other’s eyes. I thought the photos would fit right into our prompt. I decided to write a Tanka with five lines and 31 syllables.
