haiku

fallen leaves -
the ivy covered tree trunks
alive with bird calls

Nice Juliet - bird calls mainly robins and tits round here.

Love this. The first line suggests things that are passing away, but then the last two lines show that no matter what season it is or how barren it may look there's still life everywhere.

All the better to see the birds.

Ah Juliet, your haikus always make me smile. Reading this is an inspiring start to my weekend. Here I can hear kookaburras chuckling like monkeys in the gum trees. It's not quite as serene as your birds in the ivy covered trees.

Wonderful!

We've been in the throes of overeating as a result of our Thanksgiving celebrations here in the US. Aside from everyone getting overstuffed, it is a good thing to stop and call to mind those things for which we are thankful. I hope you are having a wonderful and bountiful day.
