Transient glow soon engulfed
Rooftops slick with rain
Gorgeous picture – love the perching bird surveying the world below.
He’s one of the blackbirds that’s resident on the roof opposite my house. I have a few sunrise pictures featuring him, or one of his mates!
The photo captured a tranquil view and your Haiku expressed it.
Thank you. I thought it a very tranquil scene to wake up to.
Your photo looks like a painting, Sarah. As for the word art, I think I like the penultimate line best; I see it as balanced bookends in my mind. “Transient” and “engulfed” are the weightier ends, and both make nice near-oppositions, then the two “small” O-words (books!) are there holding the middle.
I love the misted effect!! and the bird paying homage to the sun!!Perfect words- plus it is a perfect description of west coast Canada weather too.

Thank you, Cybele. Just to let you into a secret, I added to the misted effect by taking the picture through a dirty window! So you have similar weather to us then. If I’m right, I think we’re roughly at the same latitude, although people tend to think that Canada must be much further north than the UK, just because the country freezes up much more in the winter without the benefit of the Gulf Stream, but do correct me if I’m wrong about this, as it’s many, many, many years since I studied Geography at school!
There’s something very calming about this photos and your haiku…lovely this Sarah and I do adore the little bird 🙂
So glad the photo and haiku calmed you, Sherri. That’s why I started doing my Monday morning haiku slot, as I thought it would be good for people to start each week with something calming and uplifting. The little bird is really sweet. I love blackbirds.
I think it’s a lovely idea you have here Sarah and I will make sure to come by on a Monday instead of a Wednesday from now on! Blackbirds are beautiful, I love them too 🙂
