February rain . . .
yet still the sparrows playing
beneath a parked car

    Sparrows are such playful creatures. I remember as a child when we had huge gangs of sparrows, but less so now.

    I was overjoyed to own a house full of sparrows in the eaves. But less so when we lost one:

    dead sparrow
    how light the evening
    comes to a close

    But back to a joyful note:

    summer wind
    a sparrow re-rights itself
    at the peanut cage

    Well sparrows are waterproof, aren't they! :)

    I enjoyed this playful haiku.
