At Dawn in Padua – Haibun – October 23, 2015


birds at dawn

Yesterday at dawn in Padua, a squawking concert created by the voices of hundreds of migrant birds greeted me. I marvelled as a group fell upon the persimmon tree in the garden, blackening it for a moment, until I moved – causing them to fly away.  The cat sat at the window – her puffed up tail swishing furiously. The tea was bitter this morning.
