#Haikai Challenge #133: twittering (saezuri)

sunrise with pine

Morning’s pink-gold sun
Rises behind the pine row
Mist shrouds dewed, still grass
Last year’s garden twitters as
Birds peck seeds in the litter

    I feed the birds all year… less though in better weather, when more natural stuffs are available.
