Beautiful. I love watching birds... and so do my cats (I did a photo post about it recently called ''Meanwhile''). Unlike the cats, though, I don't wish to eat the birds.Thanks for stopping by!
these are beautiful.we have swallows and martins but i don't think i've seen swifts.jackdaws are not very common either (gooded crows prevail) but i have seen a few...
Lovely haikus! They really are perfect little snapshots -- I love the movement and sound of the birds, and the visual details of clouds and crags -- plus the wondrous sound of bagpipes! Oh, and it was great to click the links and get to read about the swifts and jackdaws -- thank you!
I like them both, especially the first one. The imagery of the swifts, wonderful.
Wonderful haiku with that Edinburgh flavor...loved them.
Having been to Edinburgh, I can really picture these haiku... the gorse, the crags above the city, the birds. Thanks for the beautiful reminder of a lovely time!
These both call forth images of places which I've never had the chance to visit - yet. Swifts and bagpipes, great.
I love those images and I am not familiar with those names. I love learning new words....like 'gorse'.
Love your Scottish words! I have read about Jackdaws in books but have never looked them up. Thanks for including the bird info, so interesting. You poems create a setting I would like to see someday.
Very nice. I love bagpipes. That was a nice thing to include. I like your diction. It makes you very unique.
Juliet,I like how you are so good at expressing your observations with picture perfect haiku.I stood on the stoop tonight after supper and marveled at the aerial circus the riot of birds provided.rel
every word built the picture...felt like I was there... a swooping good job
yes, megan stole the words form my mouth (or rather from my keyboard!) ~ you painted a fantastic picture of these bird's eye views :)
What I really liked about the poetry was that I didn't need a photo to accompany it. You made the viewpoint appear for me.
