Matins

 
 
 


To hear the wild goose,
 
even the priest at matins
 
stops mumbling God’s name.

  1. Very funny, reminds me of the monks at Prinknash who were always ready for a bit of light hearted fun even though they are wonderfully spiritual and devout!

  2. Must relish a bit of hunting…

    Nice … I’m not catholic but I love to watch Cadfael not only for the mystery but the period it represents … and love Gregorian chants … which your haiku brought to mind.

  7. A beauty … thank you for sharing.

    A sky filled with gees is just amazing. Pulled me out of my sister’s house to see probably 200 geese flying overhead in multiple angles. I do enjoy your style!
