When I went to pull the shade on my sliding glass door, the long rays of the sun were shining through the grease smudges on the window revealing this sad, but beautiful image. Another dove took a hard hit and left this imprint on the glass. This happens from time to time. So far, they are able to fly away after the hit. They see the reflection of the woods and sky in the window and don’t seem to realize it is an illusion.

Frank Tassone at d’Verse asked us to write a Haibun of winter. Lots of birds come to my feeder in the winter months. Doves enjoy seeds scattered on the deck. Sometimes they get reckless. I am sharing this one that happened yesterday. Amazing!
