Woodpecker – a two-verse Haiku

First signs of spring heard
Woodpecker pecks at the oak
Eating juicy bugs
O you teasing thing
I come to take a snapshot
You fly off too soon.

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    Ah! Sprightly Writer
    You took too long to arrive
    More trees beckon me

    Thanks so much, Teasing Woodpecker.

    You made me laff out loud.

    (Phil, you’re great!).
