Thank you for the kind words and the haiku.
What a beautiful, powerful, ‘simple’ poem of quietude and hope
Thank you, Bruce.
There's a Norwegian myth that people who die at sea can visit their former homes as cormorants.

Nice haiku, Alan. I read every poem in every issue, but I never seem to get around to responding, etc. I'm going to try to be better!
This was along the River Avon in the Bradford-on-Avon (Wiltshire) area. I'd never seen a whole tree filled with cormorants before, or since!
I've seen the Christmas tree (actual tree) at the City of Bath shopping centre full of birds and looking and sounding like Christmas ornaments, but much smaller birds. :-)
