Two New Poems: chirping chickadees, and morning birds

It has been bitter cold in Kansas for the past several days, so I was delighted to feel the bright warm sun on my face as I stepped outside with my Airedale terrier.  What was originally going to be a brief in and out for the dog turned into a pleasant half hour walk through my neighborhood and a nearby park.  As I walked, I saw and heard numerous songbirds, no doubt also enjoying the unseasonable weather.  Two bird-themed, mainstream, 5-7-5 haiku, chirping chickadees and morning birds, quite easily came to me.  I think I will wait until I have written several more and then try to market them as a set or chapbook.
