My haiku, “Evensong,” appeared in cattails, published by the United Haiku and Tanka Society, read it online here.

This is the published version:

one owl’s call
quickens my longing to sing—
my one note

Earlier, I wrote this version in the more familiar 5-7-5 syllable structure:

The owl, that one call,
quickens my longing to sing
only one note, mine.

I’m satisfied with both. I prefer the original version.
