In the cherry tree
the birds begin to gather,
checking that the coast is clear,
then dropping in for dinner.

I have just heard that I have won first prize in a member’s only poetry competition run by The Salopian Poetry Society – my first win ever! I just had to share the news. The poem has not been posted on the site yet but should be up there soon.

    Wow! Great news about the win. I’ll have to look into that site.

    Our first house in New Jersey (USA) had a huge old black Cherry tree – All for the birds since we couldn’t reach it. I later found out though that because of disease it had to be taken down.
