Magpie #127 Crows

Black crows fall
Into fir trees cawing
Flight fighting

Broken wings and feathers galore. Great image of wicked crows.

Images of fighting crows totally fits the depressing mood created by the figure eight painting, Kathe. The broken wings are so obviously visible. Love your haiku. Thanks for sharing. =D

Haw - yes! Many a good air fight with crows have I witnessed! Need to stop throwing out so much of my baking failures, I guess!

That happens all the time around my house. Nice one!

Thanks for checking up on me. I've been working on a longer writing project...and some other projects...and enjoying the kids' summer vacation...and being lazy...

I hope you're having a good summer, too!

Love this, Kathe. Absolutely nothing came to me when I saw this prompt, and having read a few I must say it didn't seem to generate the most creative work. But you got it right! (I see you have a new Mag up there at the top of your page but I haven't downloaded the pic yet and won't read any yet...)
