Oh! Sing to me my sweet nightingale
Melodies from distant mountains

Harmonies from the plains
Rhythms of the seas
Lull me to sleep
Nightingale
With your
Song

Haiku Heights April A to Z: Nightingale

Nightingale sings
Many sweet lullabies
Dreaming on clouds

Carpe Diem: Small Mountain




Small mountains rise
From reddened thirsty plains
Seeking rain clouds
