I got out the little 4"x6" notebook that my Beeg Seester gave me last year to prepare it to receive my notes about birding this year. It seems to be just the right size for my jottings.
In the back of the book I put a little calendar. Then I place a list of all the birds ever seen in Indiana by anyone and I check them off as I see them through out the year.
This morning I was inspired by my little notebook to write a series of haikus.
Here is my contribution to the Garden Bloggers Muse Day which you can see more of at Carolyn Gail's blog Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.
When morning dawnsand the birds burst forth with song
I want to be there
For the first chorus
bring the day into focus
warmer than the sun
The feathered breast,
crescendo of energy
Seeking new species
feathers appear unbidden
