Countryside Haiku


Intent on their work
Surveyors taking sight lines:
Two deer on "our" street.

for their continuing inspiration.)

Oh, lovely, lovely. I know now that gardeners may not be happy to see them, but I think it must be lovely to have deer visit like that! Nice image in the haiku. Well done.

The picture is as appealing as the haiku. Well done.
