love the "woven" nest
Nice! The image in the first haiku struck me as especially vivid.(Thanks for visiting my blog. By the way, I left a link to your snowdrop haiku in the comments of my first one, which I hope is okay.)
Hi Star and jacquie - thanks for your comments - and the link jacqui, lovely, thanks!
That first one is so strongly visual for me. Lovely.
i love these... especially the woven nest of sticks.always enjoy your haikus:)
ahh, they're great, i especially prefer the first - this morning i was having breakfast in a big wooly fisherman's jumper and thinking of being in brittany last summer, now i read your white-washed cottage haiku and i soooo want to be back there - encapsulates it all in those three lines! thanks! havea a good day
A cottage with heather! I am jealous. These are both nice.
Really like both of these! Wonderful image you've painted with the first haiku, I can picture that little white cottage, heather and all in my mind. ~nicely done.
Both are nice, but I love the idea of sticks sheltering the egss.
The woven nest of sticks really did it for me... it's just so heartwarming...
Beautiful word picture - four small eggs nestled in their shelter of woven sticks. Lovely, as always!
how wonderful the fields of heather must be
These are both lovely! Wish I could see those heather fields (other than in my mind's eye).
You have imprinted lovely images in my head :)
I can just see these haiku. BTW if I can get a photo of the towhees, I will upload them to my site.
such strong images! wonderful ku.
I love poetry that evokes a sigh at how well the image comes through. Both of these did that for me. Very nice. Thanks.
your haiku awakens the sense of coziness in me - I can see the smoke rising gently from the chimney while the mother tends to her nest.regards
Yes, coziness is exactly the right word for what these haiku evoke. I love the lichen & moss imagery.
Splendid haiku! I smiled and kept smiling. Wonderful - thank you.
first one makes me think of a half-way rest stop on a long trip. for the second one, i like the contrast between old and new with the moss covered nest and the eggs.
