April 6 (The Firebird)

sunrise…
the firebird flies past
my window

.

What do you mean, what’s the firebird?

    Machines and robots – this is good.

    power drills in hand
    one for my wife, one for me
    the sound of harmony

    • Okay, great starting place …. how about

      spring construction
      my wife’s power drill
      in harmony with mine

      or

      the sound of rain
      our two power drills
      in harmony

      these are pretty rough … I’m just going for avoiding three separate phrases — usually you want two in haiku; even one is generally better than three, which scatters the reader’s attention too much. Focus, focus. 🙂
