Vesper Sparrow

Written as participation in Ronovan Writes’ Haiku Challenge #242, using the prompt words ‘Scream’ and ‘Feather.’ Since it’s already unconventional, I threw a tanka into the polyptych to see how it’d work, and have provided the same piece in two formats since there’ve been problems depending on screen size. (Sorry, I’m still trying to figure out how to go about presenting these.)

Vesper Sparrow

(wildflowered sunlight )                 [fingers scratch]   {the bronze vesper}
(sparrow lost in its love songs), [feathered   syrinx] {bells toll over     and over}
(the breathing  meadow)          [screams of nightlife]   {worship beginning}.
(congregant in genesis),
(origins dawned in twilight)
