I like your sparrows haiku. You painted a picture with your words. Happy Weekend!

Thank you, Juliet, for drawing our attention to this. If I can write a Haiku I am happy with in the time, I'll have a go!

Sparrows chatter from the junipers in our yard. You are right, they are very talkative.

Ms Sparrow said...

I love your haiku! Sometime ago, I blogged about the sparrows that congregate in small trees in the evening and chatter away. I've always thought that Sparrow Tree would be a good name for a pub.

I would love read all of the sparrow haikus. Do you know where they will be published?

I might as well try to Jitterbug ... but good luck everyone else!

Hi Juliet,

Such a lovely haiku and something so sweet about little sparrows and children in a school ground.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter. There won't be sparrows in our hedges for a while yet. It snowed again today. It's pretty but I am tired of winter weather.
