    Wonderful use of juxtaposition! Astute use of verb for the starlings and also those graduation caps, sparkling in sunlight, sometimes light drizzle.

    Starlings or caps, starlings and caps, both tumbling.

    Terrific gift of a haiku for us to read and admire, and feel!

    So visual, Wendy! I’ll think of this at my daughter’s graduation ceremony this Friday.
