Egret Haiku

spooked CEGs

cowbirds flying
as though cherry blossom could
fall up into sky

Something about that picture reminded me of various blog posts and news stories I've seen of late regarding or related to hanami (social viewing of flowers especially cherry blossom or sakura) including this post by Dreams & Bones' Leslie and I ended up feeling all poetic. The frozen cattle egrets do remind me of fallen Tai Haku flowers.
