Andrew Lansdown: Bird Haiku

  Bird Haiku   i The overhead wire— a pair of welcome swallows singing in the sag.   ii Willy wagtail— subsiding for a second into stillness.   iii In the birdbath two honeyeaters drinking their bathwater.   iv A pair of doves— trusting it all to a stack of fiddlesticks.   v Such a lovely note— how could I not look up to find the pardalote?   Andrew Lansdown
