    good one gK, which brings to mind the Hitchcock oldie, The Birds

    ghosts cloud my space
    virtual reality
    harbinger of birds

    Wow! You've taken me to a cliff overlooking the water at Big Sur. Lovely image! Thank you for this.

    Hi gK = who?
    out of the thinning fog and back again pelicans at Big Sur

    —gK Very nice images, movement/motion
    I think I've met you; where?
    Mysterious of the relationship between pelicans & fog. Good change by thinning fog
    Thanks & how do I post on Tiny Words?
    Your haiku is easy to understand; I like it!

    hi gK,

    Very nice Big Sur haiku, and I'm a sucker for pelicans too, except mine come from Magnetic Island off the Queensland Coast! ;-)

    Thanks everyone for your comments.

    Alan: I agree. There's something about the slow gliding of pelicans, especially when following the curl of a wave. I've seen brown pelicans in various places in Calif plus the Sea of Cortes, & white pelicans at the Salton Sea.

    In the 70s, I did some seabird research. Because of DDT they'd quit breeding, but their HUGE nests were still on Santa Barbara Is.

    out of the darkness
    onto the wire
    the blackbird sings
    in the night
