Water of Leith haiku


high in the upper branches -
feathers flutter down.

***
feathers (probably not blackcap feathers!) found at the Water of Leith on Monday.

Are these baby bird feathers? They look like it anyway. So fuzzy and soft, blue. Love the blue. Your documentation is coming along nicely. Keep up the good work. Have a great day.

What a beautiful blue those feathers are. Light and delicate like the haiku.

I love the combination of profundity and accessibility in your work, CGP.

I finally got round to World Ocean Day! Shall look out for it next year. We have the BBC Wildlife poet, Chris Kinsey, giving a reading here tomorrow - about birds and greyhounds...

:)

Hello Juliet

I liked your Haiku

What are blackcaps?

I was in the eucalyptus forest today following bird a call and a little feather fluttered down beside me...

Happy Days

Crafty Green Poet said...

Delwyn - blackcaps are a European warbler, there's a hyperlink in the haiku, if you follow that it will take you to a page where you can see them and hear them!

No matter whose feathers, a moment worth catching.
