Haiku Friday: Quail

AnimalsToday my haiku is from August 21st of my new book A Haiku Book of Days, for Students of Animals, Birds, Insects, and Other Teachers, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Quail”

quail have feathers like
Sumo wrestlers have topknots
bobbling as they move

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.
