Blackbird: A Haiku cycle plus one

A lone guardian -
blackbird watches a white world
from a frozen limb.

In a spring of birth
I thought I was alone when
two blackbirds crossed skies

Moved by winds of heat
the blackbird flies a summer
endlessly on wings.

A blackbird shadows the
moon, black through ivory,
passing higher still.

A blackbird's feather
in my hand: what skies were moved
by your tooled darkness?
