First post in place
for the new garden fence.
It doesn’t take the pigeons long
to find a new perch!



Bedraggled pigeons, ragged
yet unconcerned in the rain,
squabble over the bird feeders.

Lined Up

Pigeons lined up
along the branches,
waiting for me
to fill the feeders.


Preening and fluffing
their feathers,
stretching alternate wings
into the rain;
pigeons on the fence
taking a shower.


Yesterday bedraggled pigeons
visited the feeders.
Today they come,
feathers fluffed and dried
in the sun.


Seagulls plaintive cries,
raucous, so unlike the soft
cooing of pigeons.

I often like to link my Small Stones to my Elfje. You will find an Elfje related to this Haiku today at Simply Elfje.


Birds peck at the fat balls
making crumbs fall.
A waddling pigeon below
gobbles them all.

Kiss and Make Up

On the branch,
side by side again,
two pigeons kiss and make up.


Two branches,
two pigeons seated —
one above the other.


Side by side on a branch
two pigeons sit like statues.
The wind blows, the branch sways
yet still they sit, defiant.

Just at the moment I am having difficulty leaving comments on Blogger or Blogspot blogs – sometimes it works, mostly it doesn’t! Thank you to all my blogging friends who continue to visit my blog. I am still enjoying my visits to yours but may not be able to leave any comments. Hopefully the problem will be sorted soon.
