Birdhouse Vacancy Haiku

birdhouse vacancy

while tenants fly southward

and trees tough it out

I must confess that as December approaches,

I daydream about overwintering someplace warm and sunny.

But I’d miss my family and friends.

Warm Blessings ~ Wendy

Mallard Duck Haiku

Mallard duck couples

waddling, wading, and flying

always together

I find birds challenging to photograph or paint;

but you only learn and improve if you take risks trying.

Relationships are like that too.

I painted this from a photograph I’d taken down by the dock.

It amazed me how different the leaves were from each other.

All beautiful. All family. Us.
