What a cool photo, and haiku. I lived on Ethel Street in another city for many years once long ago.

Oh such peace and serenity with your words.

Old Egg said...

I am sure the Grackle is grateful for another day as it looks as though it will be a good one for him! Perhaps we should all think this way too!

Truedessa said...

I enjoyed your haiku. You write these so splendidly.

Wendy Bourke said...

Loved this delightful capture - your words and your photo: splendiferous. And thank you for the introduction to 'grackles' ... what an awesome word.

Magaly Guerrero said...

The lovely bird does look very at ease. I wonder, what a poet would write, about the poet watching the bird...
