Sparrows on a rainy morning

I like trying to record small moments of wonder in haiku. On May 1st morning I was surprised and delighted to see birds visiting our bird feeder, despite a vigorous rain shower.

Rain showers in sheets,

Sparrows flutter at feeder,

A new day dawning.

May showers,

sparrows flit and feed,

grey clouds lift.

  1. They’re brave little sparrows – or very hungry! I don’t even mind waking early now as I can lie and listen to the lively birdsong heralding the day! Your haikus are lovely reminder of the joys in nature on even a rainy day.

  2. Fantastic Haiku Janice, although my bias is to the second one. We have seen sparrows drop in numbers drastically over the last few years. I am trying to work out the connection with climate change as they are an introduced bird.

    1. Thanks Denis. I’m not sure which I prefer (keeps switching) so I took a ‘workshop’ approach and showed both. I have a feeling many birds are dropping in numbers … I miss cardinals which seem to be becoming very scarce around here.
