Sparrows, pigeons, gulls,

a panoply of feathers,

excitement on high.

Sparrows, pigeons, gulls,

bird-line on hydro wire,

suspense fills the air.

In response to Carpe Diem Special #221, Candy’s Showcase, “promise in red clouds”.  My haiku is inspired by Candy’s ‘flock of black birds’ haiku, one of four beautiful poems featured in this Carpe Diem episode.
