Nicely done, and a great picture.

I saw a magpie the other day on Tom Wigley's blog, and that got me singing the magpie song in my head.... So it was an extra special treat to read your poem this morning. Your poem makes me think how spotting the magpie is first about seeing the black and white and then the scene itself.

Beautiful pairing of image and poem! The roving lines in the image echo the cyclical nature of the poem!

If only I could be as talented as you at the photoshopping elements. I dearly love your fractal today. It's beautiful. I can see the bird flying so clearly above the lone tree. And, your naisaiku is great. I can picture the magpie gently swinging on this fence. Well done. Have a nice day.

I found an old post of mine that deals with intolerance. It's quite an old-fashioned type I suppose, as it deals with regional accents. My mother was very intolerant of any but her own!

Hi Sue, this is neat.
I am taking your word for it that this is what a magpie looks like. If you hadn't told me I would have guessed a black and white peacock. :-)

I love the back and forth of this piece.
Interesting art, too.

There is wonderful motion to this piece and it makes me ponder almost like as in a Zen riddle. I love it.

So visual, and so soothing. I felt like I was on a weekend afternoon in the country reading your haiku.

Love the symmetry and rhythm in this. One can almost hear the words echo bounce inside one’s head! Good wordly architecture.

Wonderfully done, black and white, old, greying. This all blends so well!
