Nice, it is strange when someone takes the time to watch. I've tagged you for a name meme (you seem to wander around rabbit sites), come to mine and get the rules if you will play.

I have been that woman too - and was joined by a spiky purple-haired teen too! We both stood in awe at a wild finch's song. Delightful senryu Juliet.

And were they staring at her or in the direction of the bird? This reminds me of the time my DH stopped on a corner in Chicago and stared straight up. Slowly a crowd gather around him looking for was he "saw". Then he quietly slipped away.

Inside the city
Birds care not for what men think
So watch and enjoy

****

Weaving flight and form
Flocks come to gather
As a multitude
Of one

Feathers whisper
Thier secret love
To the wind
