drifting through my slumber
Wren at my window

Oh, how neat! Swweet little music.
When we to where we are now. There were a lot of Phoebe birds. But, I guess we were too noisy. They have moved elsewhere.

Birdsong - the original and most perfect music of all. Exquisite haiku and photo. I need to take this picture to my vocal music students and show them how you really open your mouth (or beak!) and sing.

How amazing to be surrounded by all these many creatures each day ... and night! Your photographs are a deep breath reminding me of all the peace that still exists around us if we only take the time to look :)

Do you drink tea? 'Cause I think he was singing about the kettle being ready.

Birdsong is definitely a nice way to wake up. Great photo, great haiku!

But that's definitely not one of the wrens who took up residence in my garage earlier this year. All they ever did was go tick-tick.

Perfect shot for a great haiku! We haven't had a wren around in years.

The picture itself sings. I'm committed this day to more awareness of the lovely medlodies that are all around me from those darting, diving, splashing, playing feathered friends - all beautiful!

The picture has a fragment of something beautiful contrasted with a blurry background. Just how your haiku homes in on a detail from the blurry rush of the world. Good combination, I enjoyed taking this breath.

Lovely words. beautiful joyful photo.

I have to smile each time I remember the name of the doctor who delivered me almost 77 years ago.

Dr Birdsong.......Isn't that neat...makes me feel special :)

I instantly and jubilantly smiled as soon as your blog page loaded. I love the photo and your poem.

(sorry about the second post--I realized my sleepy mind misspelled jubilant in the earlier one)

You've done so well with that new camera of yours! I have enjoyed your photos and writing so much. This one just compelled me to finally comment -- in the first place, the wren is one of my all-time favorite birds, and secondly, it is such a fun picture! You captured him perfectly.
Which Canon did you get? I have a digital Rebel and have been very happy with it. What lens(es) do you use to shoot these images of birds? Looks like a telephoto -- or are you just really close to the little critters?

I can't add anything to the communal joy, but just want you to know that this photo and poem produced a big smile of recognition and well being in a museum office on Long Island. Less is more.
