Lavender Twilight

lavender twilight
birds seeking their rest on high
musically sighing

soft murmurs so sweet
fill the evenings late hours
quiet now at rest

heads tucked under wings
little souls now full of peace
waiting for the dawn

Your poem is mellifluous both in word choice and tone. It sweetens the heart to think of birds "musically sighing", "sweetly murmuring" "tucking heads under wings". I love that you refer to them as "little souls waiting for the dawn". These words give the spirit flight. Lovely.

This is so seasonal and evocative, I love it at this time of year when the birds darken the sky with their grouping, those little souls look so powerful as they join together as one body, makes me think of our haiku grouping a powerful statement of love!
