Magpie haiga

a magpie preens
on a chimney pot -
a sudden breeze

Hello Crafty~ I'm so enjoying this series of collage and writing you're doing. That feather is a great find. Hope all is well. Have a nice day.

not sure i've seen many "haiga" made in this manner but i certainly like it.

I'd have probably dropped the second indefinite article but ...

hey it's lovely anyway

Michelle, Deb, thanks, yes the feather was a great find, i love the irridescence in it.

Thanks Alice, for me your blog is bittersweet too - I miss my bunny!

neither have I Gerald, i have to admit. I did think about the second indefinite article but on balance left it in.

Just lovely - I love feathers and have collected a couple or three too.

Oh, what a very good collage, the feather is marvelous.

lovely - expressive and parsimonious - and visually appealing.

Interesting collage - glad I came by following your handy hint on my blog. I immediately rushed to 'white out' the """, as you suggested, and amazingly, blogger OK'd the change - but still wouldn't let me get the 'Drops' parallel. Still, it's much cleaner now, thanks to you.

The haiku captures the moment exactly - well done.

Nicely done. You might not need "a" in line 3.
