Instinct.

Waxwings find berries,

Oblivious to their charm – 

Stopping work, I watch.

I should explain these references to Waxwings. They are very attractive birds that come to the East of England most winters, often in very small numbers, but every so often, like this year, in relatively large numbers. They are quite tame and very charming, so they receive a lot of attention and are always a joy to see.

About Basho Barr

Inspired by the great Japanese Haiku master, Matsuo Basho, I try to capture a daily moment in a small but perfectly formed Haiku.
