To celebrate National Poetry Month this April, Haiku Heights is hosting a month-long Haiku writing journey. This journey will take Haiku lovers through the alphabet one day at a time, with the first stop being the letter A! The prompt word today is Ascent.
My inspiration came from an enormous Murmuration of Starlings that I am thrilled to watch as the sunsets over the carpark at Gloucester Royal Hospital each evening. It really is spectacular but most people are in such a hurry that they fail to look up to see it.
Starlings swoop and swirl
In synchronised ascent, dark
Cloudburst at sunset
