On walking from the gym to my car at dawn

Dawn washed pearl grey
We have finally settled into spring
A robin’s lilting song


  1. We made it, Katie! I see you're still managing to get the exercise. The poem is lovely; I especially like "dawn washed pearl grey". See you Monday!

  2. The best time to write haiku--early dawn! See you in your future posts!

  3. Haiku...I was so fascinated by them when I first learned about them years ago in high school...back then you didn't learn to write until high school...and I still am...fascinated that is.
    I like it. Thanks.
    However, we are expecting a major snowstorm tonight into tomorrow night here in the northeast, from whence we thought winter had departed and spring had begun to settle!

  4. Beautiful. I love the way your craft your words to create a sound. I can hear the robin's song.

  5. Cool beans -- a haiku! So glad you are sharing it with us.
