haiku

city centre -
a heron flies above
the roof tops.

There's something very incongruous about a heron flying over rooftops - good one Juliet - I like this

Crafty Green Poet said...

Scot - nice way of looking at it, thanks!

Janice - incongruous was just what i thought too!

Every night, the skies are filled with herons and egrets and storks headed back to the rookeries.

Love the vision you gave me.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Brian - you're lucky to see so many of them! There are plenty of herons in Edinburgh, but not normally flying over the nearby roofs!

A perfect study in contrasts! Thoughtful ku!

Must be on its way to someone's pond to gobble all their fish or the frogs, toads and newts :)

We have one like that who comes to our ponds for his share of the goodies.

Lovely contrast of natural and man-made elements. You capture them like a snapshot in words.

I wish you well.

I like the contrast between the city and nature! Good one!

I always feel lucky when I see a heron. They are such majestic birds.
