"Today's Haiku"






An old brass bedstead
Grown into a ragged fence
Polished by sparrows
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In a dry grass bed
Under the brambles... snoring
A nest of Dormice
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hidden in the hedge
An old enamel tea pot
A nest for a wren
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On a barbed wire fence
Insects impaled on the spikes
A Shrike’s full larder
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Caught in the barb wire
A tuft of sheep’s wool.... soft white
Lining for birds nests
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Found in the chimney
Woven in a Jackdaw's nest
Child's pink sun glasses
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Red hair in the wire
Plotting a map in my mind
Brother Fox's path
