engrossed in small talk
facing Seattle's skyline
birds on a wire

I am so fascinated by birds!

Your strong haiku reminds me of this news story back from when I was living in Alaska: http://www.adn.com/2009/11/18/1018159/fairbanks-ravens-seem-to-mourn.html

This, I adore. The other day I saw a "convocation of crows" as I was leaving a the McVeigh house next to our Natural History Museum. There must have been hundreds. I find them fascinating, the way they gather and seem to have such wild conversations. These look like they are having a bit of gossip. I love the silhouetted look. Lovely photo and haiku, Meri!
Nice to have you back. Please if you have a chance, look back at some of my original photos from New Mexico, (there are a number of posts) especially the aspens and the one on the Rio Grande with Baca's poem. I would like to know what you think. Thanks.
Noelle

Wonderful photo, beautiful and amusing poem. Thanks for sharing this.
And, “birds on a wire” – wouldn’t Birds on a Wire make a great title for a film?

All the best, Boonie

Bonnie - seeing them there, so seemingly engrossed, made me laugh.

Rebecca - I miss your smiling face.

Alan (and Leslie) - thanks. Crows (and ravens) fascinate me. They're usually so raucous, but in this instance, they were just conversing.

Jeannie - do you think they hid the weapons of mass destruction?

Stephanie - More of Mexico to come.

Kim - don't you love Haiku My Heart Fridays and getting to see what everyone does?

ControllingaSpicyUniverse: thanks for the link.

Ms Pie: it was a wonderful place to grow up and I still love it.

Terena: Me too!

Boonie and FoxySue: Thanks.

Noelle: I left you some comments.
