Haiku-a-day: day 20 of 365

blackbird

Haiku…

Rustling sound of leaves
Startled Blackbird taking flight
Ensuing silence


Inspiration… The view through my office window at work allows me to see a wooded area that seems to be a gathering point for all sorts of creatures. In the past week I’ve seen: a thin black cat, a grey squirrel and several bird species, including a blackbird.

About Sean

I live in my own thoughts, chat to imaginary friends, and survive primarily on Snickers and Nescafe. I work full-time and study part-time for a BA in English Literature with the OU. Home is the North West of England, and my heroes are those authors that can make miracles out of paper and words…… “The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” – Mark Twain.

  1. Lovely! I, too, can see all sorts of creatures in our back garden, which backs onto fields. Isn’t Nature glorious?
