    Thanks, Shrikaanth – yes, they are social birds and they also seem to like a good natter! :)

    I adore the gossip of all birds, and in particular, the various members of the crow family:

    after the ceremony gossiping jackdaws

    Wonderful play as sure the birds will have something to say about a ceremony, and guessing this might be a wedding ceremony it might be on the quality and quantity of rice thrown at the bridal couple. :-)

    Thank you, Alan.

    This could indeed have been a wedding, but was in fact after a funeral mass. I noticed it from my office window which overlooks the church across the street. Most of the guests were in black and were standing in the road behind the hearse chatting as they waited to follow the funeral procession to the end of the street. On the lawn in front of my office was this group of birds who looked like they were mimicking the people. Although it was a sad occasion for those present, as an onlooker it was darkly amusing.

    Beautiful, Marion. I love the way you let the reader define the ceremony. And "gossip" is a wonderful choice.

    Thank you, Bill. I'm delighted you enjoyed it and pleased now that I didn't state the ceremony. :)

    Marion,

    Spot on view and comment about typical social behavior — that of the birds and the people at the ceremony. Enjoyed this!

    Thank you, Theresa.

    BTW I've just realised that I referred to those attending the funeral as 'guests', but I'm not sure that this is the correct term? :O

    So evocative Marion. Just 5 words, and each one perfectly selected for the poetic experience – bringing maximum opportunity for the audience to engage and interpret, while remaining true to the originating encounter. And I really appreciate the wry observation of human nature.

    This is a truly great haiku, worthy of a comparison with Issa. Wonderful poetry – thanks for sharing.
