a swan

flies over the pond

bones whistling



--- Brad Bennett

A Drop of Pond (2016)


Note by the Guest Editor:


These poems have been pulled from my ever-growing document of favorite haiku.

Some I have admired for years, while others I have newly discovered. This is the

joy of poetry, as of life: its ever-changing course of discovery. I encourage all

readers of poetry to keep such a file. As far as has been possible, I have obtained

permission from the writers to share them.

I looked up bone whistles - whistles, human, animal, cultural importance ...etc. The bones of birds are very thin and light weight. Quote "avian respiratory system consists of hollow bones with air cavities called pneumatic bones" so I am starting to see the physical connections. the emotional connnections of wind through birds' feathers as they fly seem harder to recognize a the moment imo.

Wondering about L 3, 'bones whistling'. Just googled and found in detail. But, if it is explained here, Thank you.

Why bone whistling and not any ordinary whistle?
