Spring in Their Steps
(mini haibun with haiku)
The bit of snow not melted from the first
Little piffile puff spat of frozen flakes
Left a white tree shadow on the lawn ~
Cold weather, shadows, did not bother
The woodpecker at the feeder.
Along with some other birdland friends
They only flutter flew briefly disturbed
When I braved the elements to do a quick
Refill of black oil sunflower seeds – I
Had to go back twice to fill my scoop.
a window watcher ~
on days when the weather turns
cold enough to freeze…
Note: not my backyard. But I do live in PA, USA, so
some of the other birds in the video also visit my feeder.
