Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

Little butcher bird
Warms the chords of daylight song
With fluted colours

Butcher bird? What a harsh name for one that apparently has a heavenly song!

Sonoran Birdsong

I understand their birdsong is complex and high-pitched. That would definitely keep their little vocal chords warm.
