Finch: In Photo & Verse

It takes a village to do a blog? It sure does when the blog holder is madly (and e’en angrily) trying to finish a project that has been about twice as much work as expected. Or wanted.

But every now and then, word of the outside world reaches me. In this case, that word is a photo of a female house finch, contributed by Pep Fraser.


And I was moved — not to song, you will be happy to not hear — but to haiku.

House finch lurks on ground;
marigolds provide cover.
Oops! Caught with mouth-full.

    I’m beginning to think that Haiku are about as contagious as Covid.

    Red yellow orange
    blooms distract from brown feathers
    petals camouflage
