Day 14 NaNoWriMo (imayo)

along the winding river – branches overhead
I heard songs of meadowlarks – cheerful warbling tunes
they floated from the pasture – music in the hedge
I stopped that day to listen – I still hear their joy

The imayo poetry form is also used for songs. Four lines of 12 syllables, each line with a caesura (pause) the 7-syllable and 5-syllable phrases. I am not aware of any limitation on subjects.
