Monday Morning #Haiku 43 — Bird Food

December Seeds

Earthworms burrow deep
Ground hard-frozen at midday
Seeds for hungry birds

    1. Thank you, Swetank. …Maybe you could learn how to write haiku, after you have learned to cook;-) In fact, the two go quite well with each other, but only once you can cook without having to look at a cookery book, as reading instructions while contemplating poetry might prove rather hard on the mind!

      All the best

  2. This was a sweet reminder of how the birds still need some seeds and I love the idea of our older plants giving them some. Also, the children who make pinecones to hang on branches with peanut butter holding sunflower seeds on them, are so caring to the natural world. A great gift to make all winter long for the birds and little creatures, too.

    1. I hadn’t heard of children hanging bird feeding pinecones from trees. What a lovely idea. If I did this, I’d have to hang those pinecones out of my dog’s reach, as she likes food!
