Baby birds huddle

Embracing each others warmth

Cuddling in the nest

They prey on the dead

Carnivorous scavengers

Killing’s not their style

Inquisitive one

Fascinated by the glow

Intensely focused


Unable to move

Attracted by shiny things

Hypnotized kitten

Floating, relaxing

savoring sunshine and warmth

Fog Haiku

This haiku was inspired by a photo taken by my good friend Bill Holland.

Fog is misconstrued

Some call fog smog and it’s not

Only Similar


Smog is pollution

Fog, natures droplets in air

A big difference


Smog can be eerie

Mysteriously unknown

What is out of view
