haiku - seasoning



                                    crows collecting twigs

                              peppering the neighbourhood -

                                  salt stained bird watcher

I did think of you when I wrote this, we all gotta eat ;) I assume you keep your bunnies safe. I've always fancied keeping pigeons... and a falcon. xomo

A wonderful contrast of white and mostly black. A yin then yang. Pepper and the crows, but wait: balanced by the yang od salt and the stuff the crows s**t out jajaja Brilliant Maureen. (I once stood under a flock of Cedar Waxwings that had just eaten some poke. Colorful END results)
