Rengay Through the Seasons #15 [1-2]

by Masago: Rengay #15 (Dec 9-15), Verses 1-2 (of 6)

River ice — a muskrat glides under / in silence.
The bank's wooded edge — a magpie swoops down.

Well, aren't you cheery: death and gloom. Who gets it next? Thumper, or Bambi? :)

Aurora: :-) Who said what the magpie was swooping down at? :-)

Aurora Antonovic said...

My over-active imagination, Vaughn, which also sees wolves outside my door when I don't want to go to work. :)

Do magpies attack people in Canada during the nesting season like they do here?

Aurora: :-) You give the impression you live in the wilds, hundreds of miles (kilometres) from civilization. Of course, maybe you do live there. ;-)

Andrew: Thanks. :-)

Floots: :-) Red neck?

Richard: They might, I don't recall seeing that though. But that would fit with this verse except nesting season here would be aprox. 6 months ago. P.S. I have been following your haiku posts.

Polona: Yeah, they can be. I just wonder how they survive the cold temperatures here. I would want to be in bare feet on cold pavement and bark, outside all winter long.
