Three Haiku About Flight: “Sunspot,” “Icarus,” and “Tailspin”

by | Original Poetry, The Poetry Deck | 0 comments


Beating sun-flecked wings
raise the swallow higher still
reaching for the sun.



Icarus rises
from the dead to stand beside
Heliotic splendor.



A crow and a hawk,
locked in an aerial duel,
plummet toward the sea.


a bird in flight against the sun
a hawk and crow in flight
birds in flight

Poet’s Notes

I decided to share more haiku after getting some nice comments on my last ones, which you should check out if you liked these three. These are three haiku about flight, but the first ones cover other natural territory.

Let me know in the comments what you thought about any of these three haiku about flight!

And thank you for reading! If you enjoyed these poems, I’d really appreciate if you left me a tip on Ko-fi so I can keep creating as much as possible for you.
