all the birds gather
before the storm

The photograph was taken through the window on 1st July 2007.
The haiku was prompted by the "feathered friends" theme at One Deep Breath.

A photograph taken just a few hours later can be seen on Summer Haiku 2007.

I dont like storms, so this has a scary effect for me. I like the way it builds up, very horror movie-esque. Strong sense of beginning, middle, end.

It always fascinates me how birds can survive the lash of mother nature and then a single gust a wind can come along unexpectedly and its all over with.

OK, you got me again! I visited this site from the link at SummerHaiku and saw an entirely different photo and no words. LOL! Anyway, I do really like the haiga above. We've been having a rainy summer so far here, and that feeling it captures has been around a lot.

@Patricia (a/k/a Roswila): Hi roswila -- aminus3 works a bit different to blogger and you have to scroll through the tiny thumbnails at the top to find earlier and later photos. You can only post a maximum of one a day but it allows one to display larger pictures more easily.

I love your haiga! Birds gathering before a storm always reminds me of the way cows often sit together in a field, like they are waiting around for something!
